The first trailer for The Secret Life of Pets 2 continues the story from the 2016 blockbuster about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his long-time collaborator Janet Healy will produce the sequel to the comedy that had the best opening ever for an original film, animated or otherwise.
The most significant change in the cast is of course the departure of Louis CK, who was replaced following his sexual harassment and sexual misconduct issues. However, his replacement, Patton Oswalt seems to be doing fine voicing Max.
Most of the original cast such as Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Hannibal Burress, and Bobby Moynihan are all returning. The Secret Life of Pets 2 arrives in cinemas in June 2019.
