The Secret Life Of Pets may follow the same premise as Toy Story, but it still makes way for a lucrative franchise. And now there’s a sequel. The new film isn’t due out in theaters for a while, but Universal and Illumination have been releasing character trailers to promote the sequel. Check out The Secret Life Of Pets 2 trailer for Chloe here below.
The trailer sees Chloe (Lake Bell) trying to get her owner’s attention by any means necessary. Whether it’s tapping her face, or shaking it. Nothing seems to work. That is until Chloe coughs up a hairball. And we get to see the side effects of catnip.
We still don’t know much of anything about the sequel. Although, one would assume these pets go on yet another adventure without their owner’s knowing about it. It isn’t called the Secret Life Of Pets for nothing. But here’s the plot synopsis anyway:
The Secret Life of Pets 2 will follow summer 2016’s blockbuster about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy will produce the sequel to the comedy that had the best opening ever for an original film, animated or otherwise.
Voice talents include Patton Oswald, Dana Carvey, Garth Jennings, Ellie Kemper, Bobby Moynihan, and Eric Stonestreet.
Newcomers to the franchise include Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Pete Holmes, and Harrison Ford.
Oswald steps in to voice the role of Max, who was originally voiced by Louis C.K. who was subsequently let go due to sexual misconduct allegations.
The first Secret Life Of Pets grossed $875 million worldwide. And based on how well that did, the sequel could end up doing better.
Written by Brian Lynch (Minions) and helmed by returning director Chris Renaud, The Secret Life of Pets 2 opens in theaters on June 7, 2019.
