The Megamind DVD comes out on Friday, February 25, and to celebrate, we have an exclusive interview with Megamind’s evil sidekick, Minion. A few weeks ago, you asked your questions, and now Minion himself is here to tell his side of the story.
GNOletsgo1 asks: Dear, Minion, do you eat fish food or bananas? Or both? I am curious.
Minion: Heaping portions of both. In fact, I have a killer recipe for a Banana Fish Split. Here it is:
- Step 1: Make a banana split.
- Step 2: Put fish on it.
- Step 3: Eat.
I promise you, tastes EVEN BETTER than it sounds.
R asks: Minion, what do you like to do in your free time?
Minion: As a Minion, I live to serve my master. But even I need my days off. Usually on my own time, I focus on my favorite hobby: Doing volunteer work for my master.
Dewdrop208 asks: Do you ever doubt Megamind when it comes to his harebrained ideas?
Minion: HA! That’s a trick question. Megamind doesn’t have any hair. He’s totally bald.
Yoshi asks: Do you ever get lonely?
No, but I once got really homesick – but it’s only because I misplaced my gorilla body in the garage.
51dotfeg asks: Do you wish you weren’t a fish? Do you wish you were a human? Or a Wizard? A dog? or a mouse?
Minion: I hadn’t thought about that before. But now I want to be a wizard fish. . . with a pet dog!
Cutieu123 asks: Do you ever feel underrated, unappreciated, or a fish out of water (excuse the pun, please)? Do you think you deserve more credit like Megamind?
Minion: Well, part of being the sidekick is not getting credit when a plan succeeds. But at least I don’t get blamed when a plan goes wrong. . . oh, wait. Yes I do!
StarMagic asks: What does it feel like being a hero/protector in Metro City? Thank you. : )
Minion: It’s definitely better than being a villain. Now people throw flowers instead of rotten fruit.
