After the first movie, everyone seemed to love the minions, and I honestly didn't think they were that important to the movie. Of course, they tend to grow on you, and they're just such cute comic relief, but now they're going to make a Minion Movie! I'm sure it'll be adorable, but it seems a little excessive.
If the Minion Movie doesn't have much of Gru and the girls, I think it'll be missing the best part of Despicable Me.
By the way, I love his knitted scarf!
