New Trailer Unveiled for Illumination’s ‘Secret Life of Pets’

New trailer for the newest animated feature forthcoming from Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures outlines an oddball-buddy plot.

On the heels of the holiday-themed trailer released in December, Illumination Entertainment has unveiled the second full-length trailer and new poster art for its upcoming animated feature, The Secret Life of Pets.

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

While the first trailer showed viewers the cute little secrets of the admittedly adorable pets, the latest version provides a little more story, outlining an oddball-buddy plot. Louis C.K. voices Max, a terrier living in New York City. He loves life with his owner Katie (Ellie Kemper), and is dismayed when she brings home a new “brother” for Max, a big sloppy mutt named Duke (Eric Stonestreet). One thing leads to another, and before they know it Max and Duke find themselves caught up in an army of abandoned pets led by a bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart):

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 is in theaters July 8, 2016.
