Despite this, their optimism, their camaraderie and their irresistible charm made them extremely popular.

However, they were not intended from the start to have this appearance as we were able to discover in the interview given to Télérama:

"At the start, the Minions were trolls, an army of big balèzes, tells Pierre Coffin. But we preferred to move away from human resemblance. We went through all the stages, to the yellowish toad with large glasses. Finally, I thought that it was necessary to focus on the expression, the eyes and the mouth. And it became this very simple man, a little Japanese. »»
