Remember when Secret Life of Pets hit theaters back in 2016? It instantly became a family favorite for us. We fell in love with Chloe the first time we saw her beautiful, round, grey, tabby catness up on the big screen. The first film was a fun, family film that all ages enjoyed. We watch Max and Duke learn to get along, went on an adventure with the gang and made some new friends like Snowball.
Family loves Secret Life of Pets so much that Universal Studios even created a Secret Life of Pets dance party! When we visited Universal Studios in August of 2017, Peyton flipped when she saw the floats featuring all her of favorite characters from Secret Life of Pets coming down the street. She was insistent that we stop and watch the show. Then she went and took some pictures with her favorite characters. It was a wonderful time.
Families embraced Secret Life of Pets and we’ve been wanting more of the crazy Chloe antics, more Snowball and the gang. Illumination listened and created Secret Life of Pets 2! It’ll be hitting theaters June 7th nationwide.
The creators that brought us Minions is now bringing us Secret Life of Pets 2!
Here is the summary from Illumination of what Secret Life of Pets 2 is all about –
Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with some major life changes. His owner (Ellie Kemper) is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic. On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke (Eric Stonestreet) encounter canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a terrifying turkey, all of which only 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, plucky Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip.
And crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he’s an actual superhero after his owner Molly starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), 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.
Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?
