The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

In Theaters June 7, 2019

The further adventures of Max the dog and his furry friends.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 will follow summer 2016’s blockbuster about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy will produce the sequel to the comedy that had the best opening ever for an original film, animated or otherwise.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 will see the return of writer Brian Lynch (Minions) and once again be directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me series, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax).
Opens June 7, but there are Fandango Early Access Screenings this Saturday at 3pm.

With Fandango Early Access, you can see 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' on May 25th, two weeks before it is released. Plus, get a free song download from the movie soundtrack!

I liked the first one and this one looks like fun too. Patton Oswalt as a replacement for Louis C.K. as Max sounds a lot different though.

Did anyone see this? Anyone know if a 3D Blu-ray will be released anywhere? Amazon.UK doesn’t have it. So probably not, which is too bad since I have 1st in 3D...

Re: The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

Wow, absolutely no one watched this here. I'm a little surprised a big summer animated movie has a completely dead thread. The 1st movie made over $800M.

I have to admit, I was only a moderate fan of the 1st movie and I did see it in theatres. So, this wasn't priority for me to see this summer and I was on vacation overseas when it came out. I will eventually see it when it hits Red Box.

Re: The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

Recasting the lead made the movie nothing more than a direct to video sequel to me. Bad, ill-advised move in my book. Should have waited a year or two for the outrage to blow over a bit. It's not like Louis CK will never work again.

I watched it in the theater with my daughter. I have very little memory of it to be honest, and have no plans to buy the home release.

Didn't get around to seeing in theaters although my daughter wanted to. So we got it today on iTunes when it came out.
Watching it now, about mid-way through. Seems alright to me. Better than most animated films this year.

Re: The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

Saw it last month when it was the only thing left playing in town that I hadn't seen. I felt like they just had a couple ideas but nothing that supported making an actual movie. Very thin...even for an animated film.

Re: The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

I saw it when it was released with my kids. It was fine and laughed at some scenes but like Obi-Wan i have very little memory of it and nothing really stands out. Kind of reminds me of those Toy Story specials that are around 20 minutes each. However, this had like four of those and it was released as a regular movie and not as good as those.

Re: The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

I left a brief review in the "Last Movie You Watched Thread" after seeing it in June theatrically with my kid. I was not a fan of the first one, although it had its moments. This one is a lazy and blatant cash grab from start to finish.
