Secret Life of Pets 2 Trailer

Max Heads to the Vet in new “Secret Life of Pets 2” Trailer

In 2016 the world was shocked when Illumination Entertainment debuted The Secret Life of Pets, a unique animated film that tells the story that our pets lead after we walk out the front door each day.  The film scored the highest opening weekend for an original story, animated or otherwise, and went on to set box office records.

Now we have our first look at the film’s highly anticipated sequel, creatively titled The Secret Life of Pets 2.

In the trailer, which is cleverly titled “The Max Trailer,” we catch up with our leading pup as he unwillingly visits the vet.  It is there that he (and us) is introduced to a wealth of new characters, each with their individual quirk.  Whether these characters prove to be instrumental in the sequel, that is yet to be seen.  Plot details are being kept under tight wraps, but one can hope that we’ll get introduced to a whole new world of canines and felines.

It should be noted that Louis C.K. has been replaced by Patton Oswalt as the voice for Max.  Though it hasn’t been made official, you can likely blame Louis’ recent moral/legal issues for the switch.  Other than that, much of the original cast is back, including the likes of Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet, Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Albert Brooks, and Lake Bell.  New “it girl” Tiffany Haddish joins the cast, which is just another role in her blitz of projects since serving as the breakout of last year’s Girls Trip.

The studio promises a run of other character-specific trailers shortly, all leading up to the film’s June 7, 2019 release.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
