Adventurous Final Trailer for Illumination's 'The Secret Life of Pets 2'
"Are you scared?" Universal + Illumination Ent. have debuted a final trailer, dubbed "Together", for Chris Renaud's The Secret Life of Pets 2, the sequel to the animated hit from a few years ago about pets and the life they have after their owners leave. This gives us the best look at the story yet, taking them to a farm and on another adventure around the city. Each of the pets from the original are now dealing with different life changes. Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears? The full voice cast includes Patton Oswalt, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Dana Carvey, Albert Brooks, Hannibal Buress, Bobby Moynihan, Kylie Hart, Nick Kroll, Pete Holmes, and Harrison Ford as Rooster. This really looks like it will be amusing and adorable, and also uplifting and inspiring. The Killers track used here is pretty much perfectly in this, I have to say. Enjoy.
Here's the final trailer (+ another poster) for Chris Renaud's The Secret Life of Pets 2, from YouTube:
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 Entertainment founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy will produce the sequel. The Secret Life of Pets 2 is once again directed by animation filmmaker Chris Renaud, who directed the first Pets movie, as well as Despicable Me, The Lorax, and Despicable Me 2 previously. The screenplay is written by Brian Lynch (who also wrote the first film). The film is produced by animation studio Illumination Entertainment. Universal will release Renaud's The Secret Life of Pets 2 in theaters everywhere starting June 7th this summer. Who's planning to see this?
I hope this bombs and they never make another.

Boo!.... Grrr.... Harumph! Seriously though, with all the bad movies, cheap cash-ins and uninspired remakes being made the first Secret Life of Pets was one of the first good animated movies out there that was not made by Pixar. Illumination has built up a solid list of family-friendly movies and this is one that I am happily looking forward to. Granted it does have cliched story lines and eye rolling character development, but it is a (younger) kids movie after all. It has to be for them to follow along and connect with the characters. If I recall correctly I was surprised at how the first Pets movie "had a heart" and didn't bash you upside the head with obvious jokes "only the adults will get", or cringe-worth fart jokes.

I wasn't a fan of the first film. While the concept was cute, the execution and story was ridiculous and lazy. I also didn't think the whole "abandoned pets killing their owners" was a great joke for kids to hear either. There are far better kids movies out there than this and I would count the Despicable Me or Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs franchises above this garbage. Each to their own I guess, but for me, this franchise is 2 too many movies long.

I hope this makes millions and they make two or three more.

In a last few weeks, there was too many trailers for this one. I hope that comes to the end now ...
