For the minions of Despicable Me, there are two time periods—Before Gru and After Gru. While there have been two films full of the tiny yellow guys while they worked under Steve Carell’s villain in reform, the first trailer for Minions shows what life was like all the way back in 1968.

The minions are coming, the minions are coming! Our favorite short, yellow, overall-clad, goggle-sporting workers from 2010’s animated film Despicable Me — which starred Steve Carell, Jason Segel, and Russell Brand — and 2013’s upcoming Despicable Me 2 will be coming to a theater near you on Dec. 19, 2014, EW has confirmed.
The 3D-CG spinoff will be directed by Pierre Coffin, who co-directed the original movie and its upcoming sequel with Chris Renaud. This new minions project will be co-directed by Kyle Balda. The film will also be produced by Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. This project marks Universal Pictures’ fifth motion picture collaboration with Illumination.
