Illumination Reveals Secret Life of Pets
Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have revealed the second trailer for The Secret Life of Pets, their 5th animated feature collaboration. The trailer gives a quick look around the Big City, from the alleys to the skyscrapers and provides a better sense of the animal characters.
The main concept of the film is ‘what pets do while humans are out all day’. It follows the story of Max, the happy house dog, whose perfect life in an apartment is turned upside down because of an ill-mannered rescue dog. Things get worse when they go missing in the city, and their neighbor pets try to set a plan to save them as they try to go back home.
The Secret Life of Pets features the voices of Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet and Louis C.K. as well as Lake Bell, Ellie Kemper, Bobby Moynihan, Jenny Slate, Albert Brooks and Hannibal Buress. Christ Melendandri (Illumination founder and CEO) and his long time collaborator Janet Healy produce the animated film and is directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2). It is co-directed by Yarrow Cheney and written by Cinco Paul, Brian Lynch and Ken Daurio.
