Dealing with the pressures of newfound celebrity and a new stepdad are tough for anyone — even a bunny — as Peter Rabbit discovers in the first trailer for “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway,” which was released on Thursday morning.
Voiced by James Corden, Peter can’t seem to shake off his naughty reputation especially when farmer Thomas McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) weds Bea (Rose Byrne) and becomes the man of the rabbit-filled house.
Instead of trying to mend his mischievous ways, Peter heads to town on an adventure but realizes he might not be quite ready for the big smoke and the dark characters that come with it.
Our hero walks with a heavy heart — and heavy paws — after stepping into wet concrete as he hits the cobbled streets of rural England, bumping into a real tough rabbit stealing apples from a fruit cart along the way.
“I’m no goody, goody … I’m a baddy, baddy,” Peter boasts, before getting buried in an avalanche of apples.
When his human and animal family venture out of the garden to rescue him, Peter must finally decide exactly what kind of rabbit he wants to be.
Based on the classic “Tales of Peter Rabbit” series created by Beatrix Potter and the sequel to 2018’s “Peter Rabbit,” the live-action/computer-animated comedy is directed by Will Gluck and written by Patrick Burleigh and Gluck.
David Oyelowo, Elizabeth Debicki and Margot Robbie also lend their voices to the cotton-tailed cast.
The Sony Pictures production hops into theaters on April 3, 2020.
