'The Secret Life of Pets 2': Chloe is every cat owner's worst nightmare
'The Secret Life of Pets 2' just released their first character trailer featuring the obese blue tabby, Chloe
If you've ever had a feline companion, you know it's not always a joy ride. Chloe the cat in the latest 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' trailer will make you reminisce about all the great and not so great parts of having a cat at home. Voiced by Lake Bell, the sassy blue tabby will be back with her gang of furballs next year in June. The first film of the series was a phenomenal success, greenlighting Chloe and friends to come back to entertain us once more.
The trailer gets being a cat owner bang on. Chloe wakes up her parent with some gross vomit, loses her mind over catnip and sleeps all day. Throughout the films, no one really cares about Chloe's parent - she's just an anonymous figure who feeds this overweight and clumsy cat and stays with her in their New York City apartment. Oh, the joys of being a cat mom, am I right?! Cute and adorable with an extra dosage of derp on the side, Chloe makes the wait even harder.
The film was originally slated for June 2018 but was pushed by a year. The reason for the shift hasn't been revealed yet, but it's possible this was Universal and Illumination Entertainment's way of sorting out all the sequel releases they have for the next two years so none of their films get upstaged by the other.
The studios have 'Minions 2' lined up for around the same time a year later (July 2020) as well as 'Sing 2' for December 25, 2020. With the new release date, June 7, 2019, 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' will be opening with yet another highly anticipated sequel, a 'Charlie's Angels' reboot, and an untitled Marvel film.
There were a few cast shakeups as well in comparison to the first film that released in 2016. Comedian Louis C.K was replaced by Patton Oswalt in 2017 for the voice of Max, after he admitted to sexual misconduct with five women. Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Pete Holmes and Harrison Ford were added to the cast earlier this year.
