The Cat is Out of the Bag in New Trailer for Illumination’s ‘Secret Life of Pets’

New, full-length trailer unveils plot details for the forthcoming CG-animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures starring comedy superstars Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet and Kevin Hart.

In celebration of National Pet Day on Monday, a new trailer for The Secret Life of Pets debuted on Late Night with Seth Meyers and has now made its way onto the web for viewing online.

The fifth fully-animated collaboration between Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures, The Secret Life of Pets is a comedy about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day.

While the earlier teasers and trailers gave us plenty of adorable animals but was light on plot points, this new, full-length trailer unveils more of the details. Check it out in the player below:

Here’s the official synopsis:

Taking place in a Manhattan apartment building, Max’s life as a favorite pet is turned upside down, when his owner brings home a sloppy mongrel named Duke. They have to put their quarrels behind when they find out that an adorable white bunny named Snowball is building an army of abandoned pets determined to take revenge on all happy-owned pets and their owners.

Comedy superstars Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet and Kevin Hart make their animated feature film debuts in The Secret Life of Pets, which co-stars Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress and Albert Brooks. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy produce the film directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2), co-directed by Yarrow Cheney and written by Brian Lynch and Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio.

The Secret Life of Pets opens in theaters July 8, 2016.
