It was the early '70s, and the Minions (voiced by Pierre Coffin) were in the market for a new master-so they glommed on to Gru (Steve Carell), then just a 12-year-old fanboy of the criminal crew called the Vicious 6. When the 6 jumped out ex-honcho Wild Knuckles (Alan Arkin), Gru offered to replace him... and after getting laughed off, his vengeful attempts to show up the cabal got their attention in the worst way. Fun franchise entry co-stars the voices of Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh, Lucy Lawless, Julie Andrews.
For young Sheldon Cooper, being a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science isn't always helpful in East Texas. And while the vulnerable, gifted and somewhat naive Sheldon deals with the world, his very normal family must find a way to deal with him. His father struggles as a high school football coach and father to a boy he doesn't understand. Sheldon's mother fiercely protects her son who just doesn't fit in. Sheldon's older brother does the best he can in high school, but his younger brother is already in college. Sheldon's twin sister remains the one person who can reliably tell Sheldon the truth. And his beloved Meemaw, his Texas grandmother who supports him and his gifts. For over a decade, Big Bang Theory audiences came to know the iconic, eccentric and extraordinary Sheldon Cooper. Now they join him as he embarks on his innocent, awkward journey toward the man he will become.
