Why the Minions Aren't Female
Did you know that all the minions are males?
Minions creator Pierre Coffin shared why there aren't any female yellow, pill-shaped heroes.
"Seeing how dumb and stupid they often are, I just couldn't imagine Minions being girls," Coffin told The Wrap.
TIME reported that Coffin also said the creatures can't reproduce or divide themselves.
It is unusual for a movie to rely heavily on a cast of males, TIME reported. The "Despicable Me" spin-off does star a female villain, played by actress Sandra Bullock.
The "Minions" raked in $115.2 million in box offices across North America over the weekend. That's the second-largest animated opening in history, according to Rentrak.
