Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have been releasinga series oftrailers for the upcoming The Secret Life Of Pets 2. While they are called trailers, they feel a lot more like vignettes, with each of them following a different pet from the previous film. It even introduced a new one. Of course, all of them put a slightly humorous slant on what otherwise would have been another boring day for these pets when their owners are gone.
That is no different with this latest video, which focuses on Gidget (Jenny Slate), a small Pomeranian dog who has a sudden identity crisis when she wears a pair of cat ears and puts a long sock on her tail. And when Chloe (Lake Bell) starts to teach the fluff ball that there is more to being a cat then she thinks, the once sparky canine starts believe that she herself is a cat. Check out the latest video here below.
At some point in time we are bound to get an actual trailer for the film. If anything, these are almost like clips from the actual film itself. At least, that’s what it feels like.
Regardless, we are getting another look at the sequel. And in this particular trailer, Chloe has dressed up Gidget as a cat. She then says she will teach Gidget how to be a cat by throwing situations at her for which the small dog will have to react like a cat. So Gidget learns how to be sophisticated by not fetching after a ball, because “she is above that” and how to be graceful because all cats land on their feet. Gidget also learns etiquette and “cattitude.” And there is a small teaser that takes things too far. Well, at least too far in terms of family-friendly animated films.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
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.
The Secret Life of Pets 2 will see the return of writer Brian Lynch (Minions) and once again be directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me series, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax).
The film also features the voices of Hannibal Buress, Kevin Hart, Pete Holmes, Garth Jennings, Ellie Kemper, Nick Kroll, Bobby Moynihan, Patton Oswald, Eric Stonestreet, Dana Carvey, Tiffany Haddish, and Harrison Ford.
