Minions Stuart, Kevin, and Bob are recruited by Scarlet Overkill, a supervillain who, alongside her inventor husband Herb, hatches a plot to take over the world.
The crown in the Tower of London is guarded by several "beefeater" guards. The guard leftmost of the crown looks exactly like the UK's Prime Minister at the time of the film's launch, David Cameron.
You have no idea who you're messing with! I am the greatest supervillain of all time!
Young Gru: Oh, WERE you?
Villain Con is hosted in Orlando, which is portrayed as a tourist destination. However, the film takes place in 1968 and Orlando did not become a tourist destination until the opening of Walt Disney World three years later. Prior to this, Orlando was mostly an industrial city which played an important role in the states citrus industry.
There are various jokes with the Minions as the end-credits initially scroll, followed by an extended post-credits sequence in which Kevin, Stuart and Bob perform a version of The Beatles song "Revolution" and most of the characters from the movie re-appear.
