Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Minions on DVD/Blu-ray

*Disclosure: I received a copy of this movie to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

We didn't make it to see Minions in the theatre, much to my great disappointment. I am a huge fan of the Despicable Me movies, so knew that I definitely needed to see Minions as well. So I was VERY excited when I received a package this week and opened it to find a DVD/Blu-ray combo pack of Minions inside! In case you somehow are unfamiliar with this movie, here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters.  Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression. But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. The trio embark upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award®-winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain.  They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in ‘mod’ London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind...from annihilation.

The DVD/Blu-ray combo pack will be available for purchase as of December 8, 2015. It's great, because it includes digital access as well, so you can watch Minions as you're on the go this holiday season! And it contains three mini movies. For a sneak peak at those, catch the trailer here.  Minions is just as silly and fun as the Despicable Me movies and got a huge thumbs up from the kids and me. I can't wait to watch it again!
