Following the success of2016's 'The Secret Life of Pets,' a new trailer of the sequel, 'The Secret Life of Pets 2,' was just dropped and it is fun and just the way we expected it to be. The trailer shows Jack Russell Terrier Max (now voiced by Patton Oswalt, who has taken over from Louis C.K.) as well as some of his fellow animal friends.
Once again, we'll see what their lives are like when their owners aren't home.
The movie is slated for a summer release and will hit the silver screens on June 7, 2019
According to the official movie website, Terrier Max is coping with some major life changes. His owner is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops panic issues. On a family trip to a farm, an incident elevates Max’s anxiety. Luckily, Max gets some guidance from veteran farm dog Rooster (Harrison Ford, making his animated-film debut), who pushes Max to ditch his neuroses, find his inner alpha, and give Liam a little more freedom.
Meanwhile, while her owner is away, Pomeranian Gidget tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe, who has discovered the joys of catnip.
And crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball gets delusions of grandeur that he’s an actual superhero after his owner Molly starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy, a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s only been pretending to be.
In addition to Patton, the voice cast includes Dana Carvey, Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet, Jenny Slate, Tiffany Haddish, and Harrison Ford, who voices a new character, Rooster, a Welsh sheepdog.
The movie will see director Chris Renaud (Despicable Me) returning to direct while Brian Lynch has penned the script for the sequel as well.
The trailer gives us a glimpse of the emotional lives of animals. It shows Max going to a vet who specializes in behavioral disorders and trying to find a cure for his anxiety issues.
