Things are about to get hairier. While the first “Secret Life of Pets” showed the hidden lives of household pets — in the vein of “Toy Story” — the first trailer for the sequel shows the insecurities and worries your pets think about when they’re dragged to the vet.
“My owner always says I’m such a good dog, and I feel like a good dog, but what if I’m a bad dog,” one particularly neurotic pet says in the trailer. “What if I’m a bad dog!?”
That’s hardly the biggest change to the upcomingfilm. “The Secret Life of Pets 2” has re-cast Patton Oswalt in the role of the lead dog Max, a part originally voiced by Louis C.K. The comedian was dropped from the film back in November 2017 after he admitted to sexual misconduct.
Other new additions to the voice cast include Harrison Ford, Tiffany Haddish and Nick Kroll, joining Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Hannibal Buress and Bobby Moynihan.
Chris Renaud is returning to direct and Brian Lynch wrote the screenplay to the sequel.
“The Secret Life of Pets 2,” from Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures, opens in the summer of 2019, originally pushed back from June 2018. Illumination’s “The Grinch” opens this Friday.
