Fans of Despicable Me will have to wait one year longer for the Minions to invoke their madness upon the silver screen. Illumination Entertainment and parent company Universal announced today that this film will be released July 10, 2015. It was previously slated for Dec 19, 2014, and the reasons why are undisclosed.

Maybe some breathing room is required? After all, there are hundreds of minions to deal with and the story will have to be restricted to just a sampling of the stand-outs of this genetic crowd for some good stand-up comedy.

At least the minions are not alone in all this shuffling that’s going on. PIXAR’s Good Dinosaur movie also got the one year bump. And fans of animation will just have to wait for a busy 2015 season to get their fix. In the meantime, fans can get their fix on Youtube with a variety of shorts made over the years, like this fun Football one.
