'The Secret Life of Pets 2': Trailer for 2019 movie offers first glimpse of Patton Oswalt voicing protagonist Max
A long list of big names reprise their roles and are joined by Tiffany Haddish this time, along with Harrison Ford lending his voice for his first voice role
The trailer for 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' is finally here and it is everything we expected the follow up to the 2016 summer blockbuster to be! The fact that something as simple as the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day, could be portrayed in such an entertaining manner, was brought to the screen by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy, who are set to produce the sequel to the comedy.
When the first installment was released, we got a glimpse into the lives of Max, Duke, Snowball and the rest of the gang in action. So naturally, when the trailer was released, fans couldn't wait till July 2018 - as it was initially announced - for the sequel. Sadly, the release was pushed back to June 2019.
But worry not, for the trailer for 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' has some more mind-blowing action from our favorite furry friends, even after dropping a major lead from its main cast - aka Louis C.K who voiced the character of Max in the first movie.
C.K. was dropped after he confirmed the sexual misconduct allegations against him, and has since been replaced by Patton Oswalt, alongside a star cast packed with familiar big names like Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Jenny Slate, Albert Brooks, and Hannibal Buress. The long list of big names reprising their roles is joined by Tiffany Haddish this time, along with Harrison Ford lending his voice for the movie, thus marking his first ever voice role.
Writer Brian Lynch of minions' fame is reprising his role once again, and so is director of the Despicable Me series, and Dr. Seuss' 'The Lorax', Chris Renaud. This explains the brilliant job the new trailer for 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' does in reminding fans exactly why they loved the first film so much.
Without revealing much, the trailer offers a glimpse into Patton's role as Max and shows the plot of him having undertaken a scary trip to the vet. There's, of course, his ever so loving owner, Katie (Ellie Kemper), and Haddish's unnamed character appears as one of the dogs in Max's gang, towards the end of the trailer.
'The Secret Life of Pets 2' opens in U.S. theaters June 7, 2019.
