Twilight Sparkle's Retro Media Library


Since the dawn of time, Minions have served (and accidentally eliminated) history's most despicable villains. After their latest explosive mistake leaves them without an evil leader, the Minions fall into a deep depression. With the tribe on the brink of collapse, three unlikely heroes -- Kevin, Stuart, and Bob -- embark on a journey to find a new big boss. When their quest leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill, our three heroes must face their biggest challenge yet: saving all of Minionkind... from annihilation!
