It always makes us so happy when sequels to some of our kids' (and ours, let's be honest) favorite movies come out! One movie just isn't enough sometimes, and when sequels are done right, they can be even better than the original. Last year, one of our favorite movies of all time finally got the sequel we all deserved, with Incredibles 2 wowing at the box office. And while we love new movies and characters, there's just something so comforting about reuniting with our old friends. 2019 is shaping up to be a major year in family movies, with live-action versions of The Lion King, Aladdin, Dumbo, and Lady and the Tramp all coming out this year. But we also have some great sequels to look forward to, starting with The Secret Life of Pets 2! The original won us over with its depiction of what our lovable fur babies get up to when we leave them alone for the day. And the sequel looks like it's going to continue the fun, with the addition of an adorable new character named Daisy.
Daisy is a pup on a mission, and she needs Snowball's help. In the new trailer, Daisy can be seen asking for Captain Snowball, and then the adventurous bunny dons a super suit and we're guessing hi-jinks ensue! Kevin Hart returns as the voice of Snowball the bunny, and Lake Bell is returning as the voice of Chloe the cat. Tiffany Haddish joins the cast as Daisy, and Patton Oswalt replaced Louis C.K. as the voice of Max. Harrison Ford is also joining the franchise, but we're not quite sure which pet (or human) the veteran actor will be voicing.
It really does look like an adorable movie, and a great sequel! It can be hard to put out a sequel to a movie that was so well-received. But it looks like Illumination, the studio behind The Secret Life of Pets franchise, struck all the right chords with this one. We're sure our kiddos are going to love, and we're guessing we'll be pretty big fans, too! The Secret Life of Pets 2 comes out June 7, 2019.
