Fandango, the nation’s leading digital destination for moviegoers recently premiered a new digital weekly series of original video shorts entitled “Movieclips Mini Movies: Featuring Brian the Minion.” The release of the mini movies represents the first-ever collaboration among Fandango Movieclips, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures. Illumination created the “Despicable Me” movies, which first introduced the world to those adorable, silly Minions, as well as the series’ prequel, “Minions,” which opens in theaters everywhere on July 10.
The new weekly series introduces a brand new Minion character, “Brian,” an excited moviegoer, who accompanies his sweet-yet-subversive Minion brothers to the movies. Mayhem ensues in the theater as Brian’s unpredictable fellow Minions react to scenes from Universal classics like “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” “Back to the Future,” “E.T.,” and others.
In this week’s premiere episode, available for viewing at Fandango Movieclips on YouTube the Minions relive the thrills of the original “Jurassic Park.” The episode is timed to the release of Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s “Jurassic World,” which opens in theaters this Friday.
