‘Despicable Me’ Edges Out ‘Shrek’ As All-Time Highest-Grossing Animated Franchise
It’s a Minion world, and we’re all just living in it. The little pill-shaped yellow critters have left an indelible imprint on the cultural mainstream, for better (footage not found) or for worse (try googling “minions memes,” I dare you). Kids and adults alike have latched onto the phenomenon with an uncommon enthusiasm, and now the numbers reflect the totality with which the Despicable Me universe has permeated modern life. In the seven brief years since Illumination Entertainment loosed the original Despicable Me on an innocent populace, the franchise has grown into the largest of its kind — the highest-grossing animated franchise of all time.

I don’t quite understand why, but people really seem to want to eat the Minions, the lovable yellow goobers from the Despicable Me franchise.

It’s not guaranteed, but there’s a legitimate chance that when all is said and done that Despicable Me 3 reigns supreme as the top-grossing movie of the 2017 summer box office. The previous sequels, plus the Minions spinoff, have grossed more than $2.6 billion worldwide, and each of the last two made well over $300 million in the United States alone. Despicable Me 3 looks like it will offer plenty of what fans of the series crave: Those goofy gibberish-spouting Minions, wacky misadventures, and plenty of Steve Carell’s lovably evil Gru, plus now he’s got a twin brother (or, as he calls him, “a tween broothur”) to contend with as well.

The adult version of realizing Santa Claus is not real is the revelation that pretty much everything on Earth is owned by one of a small handful of multinational conglomerates.
