The future is precarious for Peter Rabbit, as he realizes that happy families lead to babies — which means he could get thrown out on his fluffy little tail if his reputation as a furry troublemaker keeps up.
In the latest trailer for “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” released Wednesday, our bunny hero gets tired of being scolded for stealing tomatoes or causing mayhem in the garden and decides to take matters into his own paws by hitting the road.
So he takes his motley crew of animals to Shangri-La (a.k.a. the farmers market). “We’re going to rob this place, are you in or are you out?” he asks them. Of course, not all goes according to plan and when a few of the critter criminals end up behind bars, it is Peter’s job to rescue them.
James Corden reprises his role as the voice of the rebel rabbit in the sequel to the hit 2018 live-action/computer-animated comedy film. Domhnall Gleeson and Rose Byrne return as his human “parents” Thomas and Bea, with Elizabeth Debicki, Lennie James and Margot Robbie all voicing animal sidekicks. “Selma” star David Oyelowo also joins the live-action cast as Percy McGregor.
Based on the characters and tales of “Peter Rabbit” by Beatrix Potter, the film is directed by Will Gluck and written by Patrick Burleigh and Gluck.
Executive producers are Doug Belgrad, Jodi Hildebrand, Catherine Bishop, Emma Topping, Thomas Merrington, Jonathan Hludzinski and Ingrid Johnston.
The Sony Pictures production hops into theaters on April 3, 2020.
10 Scene-Stealing Cats in Movies, From 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' to 'Captain Marvel' (Photos)
Cat, "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (1961)
Let's make this clear: Holly Golightly does not own this cat. He belongs to nobody and nobody belongs to him. But that doesn't stop him from playing a pivotal role in the movie, including the tear-jerking final scene.
Tonto, "Harry and Tonto" (1974)
Art Carney's portrayal of a feisty retiree on a cross-country road trip won him an Academy Award, while his feline costar didn't even get a nomination. What gives?
Twentieth Century Fox
Jonesy, "Alien" (1979)
This orange tabby was the unofficial mascot of the USCSS Nostromo and one of the few crew members to survive a Xenomorph attack. He also remains the only character to successfully steal a scene from Sigourney Weaver.
Twentieth Century Fox
Church, "Pet Sematary" (1989, 2019)
Ellie Creed's playful kitty Winston Churchill was run over by a truck and came back from the dead as Church to terrorize his former owners. That's something to consider before burying your cat in a cursed cemetery.
Binx, "Hocus Pocus" (1993)
Thackery Binx was just a normal teenage boy in 1693 before he was cursed to live forever in the body of a black cat. But hey, everyone goes through weird phases in their teens.
Buena Vista Pictures
Mr. Bigglesworth, "Austin Powers" series (1997-2002)
When Dr. Evil's cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, gets upset, people die. Honestly, Dr. Evil doesn't sound too different from the average cat owner.
New Line Cinema
Mr. Jinx, "Meet the Parents" (2000)
This movie should actually be called "Meet the Parents' Cat," because Mr. Jinx is the real star. The perpetually-frowning Himalayan cat is Jack Byrnes' pride and joy, and knows how to come when called, wave and even use the toilet. That's called a 'triple threat' in showbiz.
Fat Louie, "The Princess Diaries" series (2001-04)
Behind every great princess of Genovia is an equally great black-and-white kitty.
Buena Vista Pictures
Ulysses, "Inside Llewyn Davis" (2013)
This honey-colored tabby joined Oscar Isaac's grumpy folk musician as he wandered around New York City and Chicago in the Coen brothers' film. Though he takes up more screen time than many of the human actors, the feline actor isn't named in the credits -- perhaps because the character was played by three separate (but equally adorable) animal performers.
Goose, "Captain Marvel" (2019)
Okay, Goose is technically not a cat. Carol Danvers' orange sidekick is actually a Flerken (an alien with massive tentacles hidden inside her mouth), but Goose's fluffy coat and knack for getting into trouble puts her firmly in the cat category.
