The first Despicable Me movie graced our screens over a decade ago, and since then, there have been a number of both sequels and prequels. It’s hard to believe so many years have gone by since we were first introduced to these funny little Minions. From the popular Minions merchandise in retail stores to the memes online to the binging marathons that our younger siblings have subjected us to, Despicable Me and the Minions movies are by now household names and, no doubt, absolute masterpieces. We have collated 45 amazing facts about these yellow banana-loving creatures that will take viewers back in time to the bubbling era of Minions, Gru, and his evil plans. Let’s dive!
The voices of Kevin, Bon, Stu, and all the other Minions were voiced by one person
The varying voices we hear from Kevin, Stuart, and Bon, who are the three protagonists of the 2015 film Minions, were voiced by the same actor and director, Pierre Coffin. In the movie, Kevin is the protagonist, Bob is the deuteragonist, and Stuart is the tritagonist who carries out different roles.
It’s surprising to see only one person voice these three main characters. Born in 1967, Pierre Coffin is a French animator, voice actor, and film director, and his multiple voice-overs acting in the Despicable Me franchise earned him an award at the 10th Seiyuu Awards.
