Minions spin-off from ‘Despicable Me’ set for 2014

Universal is set for not one, but two sequels to “Despicable Me.”

“Despicable Me 2” will be coming July 3, 2013, but they’ve also planned a spin-off film involving the Minions. That film moves closer to reality with a nearly announced release date of December 14, 2014.

December 14 would have the benefit that the next week will begin the holidays for normal people, and then there’s Christmas, which means most of the rest of the year will be filled with families at home with each other – and that’s perfect for a film like this.

Currently Disney has an animated film in May (‘The Good Dinosaur’) and ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2′ is scheduled for June 20, 2014 (the same weekend that launched ‘Brave’ this year). Often there’s an animated film the first week of November, but whatever that is – if we’ll get one – hasn’t been slotted yet.
