Okay, so by now we should pretty much know what we are getting from these character trailers for The Secret Life of Pets 2. Each of them introduces or re-introduces a pet that will be seen in the upcoming Illumination Entertainment sequel. And not much else. After half a dozen of these, we still don’t know anything about the plot.
Although, this latest teaser might give us a slight idea. It gives us a first look at Rooster, voiced by Harrison Ford, as a very loyal and tough shepherd dog. Check out the teaser below.
It looks like Max (Patton Oswalt) and Duke (Eric Stonestreet) are going on a trip to the farm. No, not that kind of farm. An actual one. There, they will experience all sorts of new sights and smells. But they aren’t greeted with a warm welcoming. Especially when Duke tries to communicate with a fellow cow using stereotypes and asking it to moo. To which, the cow responds with witty insults.
After that, they just seem to roam the premises, which isn’t easy for Max, who now wears the cone of shame. That anti-biting device seems to attract all sorts of trouble, and he uses it as an excuse to cover-up his lack of courage. Of course, Rooster can’t put up with any excuse and removes it with ease.
Other than that, there isn’t much to the teaser. We do get to hear Ford as the gruff dog. But beyond that, don’t expect to see anything else.
Here’s the plot synopsis, which doesn’t tell us anything about the film:
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.
This is a rather interesting marketing campaign. I’m beginning to wonder if this is even a film to begin with. Or are we just going to see a bunch of vignettes?
