The first trailer for the highly anticipated Despicable Me spin-off, Minions has debuted on Monday. The new footage introduces fans of the franchise to Stuart, Kevin and Bob, three yellow henchmen on the hunt for the “most despicable master around.”

While the loveable minions have served some of history’s greatest villains, including T. Rex, Dracula and Napoleon, they’ve had trouble keeping them alive. When the group ends up aimless and depressed without a master to give their lives purpose, Kevin vows to find his “tribe the biggest, baddest, villain to serve.” Stuart and Bob join their new leader on the mission and embark on a journey to New York City, circa 1968.

Sandra Bullock lends her voice to the film and plays Scarlett Overkill, a villain determined to take over the world. Her husband, Herb Overkill, is voiced by Jon Hamm. Michael Keaton and Allison Janney also have roles in the animated comedy, which is slated for release in July 2015.
