Minions Movie Update (July 28th 2015):

Directors of the Minions movie Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda talked about the movie, they used their creative imagination to pick up interesting-sounding words from the languages all around the world and used them  to create the Minions’ own unique way of speaking. In an recent interview they said that they imagined the Minions as being able to work for super villains all around the world, so that gives them global appeal and make them attractive to everyone and didn’t went wrong with it, They are loved by everyone all over the world and they successfully achieved in the end. Minions is being loved by all not just by their beloved evil masters.

“We sort of established that these guys have been around, like, forever, serving masters all over the world and it gave us some sort of license to pick words here and there … Funny words, like in the Japanese language, and the Korean language, Chinese, Italian—and mix everything up to make this very special language that they have,” they said.

Despicable Me was directed by Chris Renaud, the movie where the Minions first made their debut and took the world by storm, C recorded the bulk of the Minion gibberish and it’s due to his research and inserting various foreign words that the language sounds amusing and authentic.

Despicable Me 2 Breaks Home Entertainment Record

“Minions Banana Language sounds silly, but when you believe that they’re actually communicating, that’s what makes it funnier.  While it is gibberish, it sounds real because Pierre puts in words from many languages and does the lion’s share of the Minion recordings. There are a lot of food references. For example, ‘poulet tiki masala’ is French for the Indian chicken dish,” he said.

Some of these words are:

Kiss Kiss / Muak Muak Muak

What / Po ka

For You / Para Tu

To Infinity And Beyond ! / bu ta na ma ka

Thank You ! / Tank Yu !

We Love You ! / Tulaliloo ti amo

I Hate You ! / Tatata Bala Tu

I’m sorry / Bi Do



Toy / Baboi

Bottom / Buttom

Apple / Bable

Ass / Butt

One / Hana

Two / Dul

Three / Sae

Chair / Chasy

Marriage / La Boda

Banana / Nanna

I’m Hungry ! / Me want banana

Cheers / Kampai

Ugly! / Bananonina

I swear / Underwear

look at you / luk at tu

Matoka / Hunger/empty tummy

Me want banana! / I’m hungry!

Together with the eccentric AVL agent, Lucy Wilde, Gru concludes that his prime suspect is the presumed dead supervillain, El Macho, whose his teenage son is also making the moves on his eldest daughter, Margo.

Seemingly blinded by his over-protectiveness of his children and his growing mutual attraction to Lucy, Gru seems on the wrong track even as his minions are being quietly kidnapped en masse for some malevolent purpose. Click Here for the most amazing and hilarious MINION Pictures EVER !
