Okay, so by now we should pretty much know what we are getting from these character trailers for The Secret Life of Pets 2. Each of them introduces or re-introduces a pet that will be seen in the upcoming Illumination Entertainment sequel. And not much else. After half a dozen of these, we still don’t know anything about the plot.
Although, this latest teaser might give us a slight idea. It gives us a first look at Rooster, voiced by Harrison Ford, as a very loyal and tough shepherd dog. Check out the teaser below.
The Shrek films were a surprisingly funny satirical take on the fairy tale genre. But it has been eight years since we saw the lovable titular ogre, Fiona, Donkey, and Puss in Boots in an unlikely adventure that would feature sword swinging, medieval tropes, and humor.
Now it looks like Shrek, along with the Puss in Boots spinoff, are getting a reboot from Despicable Me creator Chris Meledandri. More on the report, below.
In Illumination’s latest film, Sing, Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) is holding a singing competition in his dying theater in a last ditch effort to scrounge up the money needed before the bank can repossess his beloved property. The optimistic koala settles on five contestants: a mouse (Seth MacFarlane), a timid elephant (Tori Kelly), a pig (Reese Witherspoon), a gorilla (Taron Egerton), and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson), in hopes that they can generate the funds necessary to keep the theater afloat but also bring back interest in genuine talent. Little does he know that the road to success isn’t easy, but with a little hard work and some faith, it can be done.
We had a phone interview with the film’s director Garth Jennings (A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Son of Rambow) to talk about what it was like to get clearance for the songs, working on his first animated film, his reaction to all the positive buzz, and much more. Check it out below.
Universal has released the final trailer for Illumination Entertainment’s Sing.

Reilly, Taron Egerton, and Grammy Award-nominated Tori Kelly. Check out the new trailer below.
