Celebrating the new home entertainment release of Illumination Entertainment’s The Secret Life of Pets -- available today from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand -- here’s an exclusive clip featuring supporting voice cast members Lake Bell (Chloe) and Bobby Moynihan (Mel):
The nation’s top-grossing original film of the year, The Secret Life of Pets earned more than $834 million in global ticket sales. A comedy about the lives our pets lead when we leave for work or school, the animated feature marks the fifth feature-length Illumination-Universal collaboration. The film is directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me franchise, Dr. Seuss’ the Lorax) and co-directed by Yarrow Cheney (Despicable Me franchise).
In the movie, Max, voiced by Louis C.K., is a loyal terrier living a perfectly happy existence until his owner, Katie (Ellie Kemper) brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet) a big, boisterous mutt she finds at the shelter. When Max and his unruly new “roommate” slip away from their dog-walker, they find themselves lost in the urban jungle of New York City. In an attempt to stay ahead of animal control and a rebel band of abandoned pets led by an unhinged bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), they put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home. Jenny Slate (Zootopia), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Dana Carvey (Wayne’s World), Hannibal Buress, Steve Coogan and Albert Brooks round out the supporting cast alongside Bell and Moynihan.
The 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD versions feature nearly an hour of bonus content, including three mini-movies: the all-new Norman Television and Weenie, plus Mower Minions, which debuted in theaters ahead of the film.
As previously announced, Renaud will direct a sequel, entitled The Secret Life of Pets 2, with co-writer Brian Lynch returning to write the screenplay. That film is set for release on July 13, 2018.
