The success of the Despicable Me franchise proves that Illumination Entertainment has what it takes to go toe to toe with more established animation studios like DreamWorks and Pixar, at least when it comes to producing commercially successful CG franchises. Now, they are out to prove that their success isn’t limited to Gru and the Minions with a new CG animated film titled The Secret Lives of Pets.
The Secret Lives of Pets is described by the studio as:
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.
A new trailer has been released for the film, which delves into the fact that pets don’t always make the best photography models. You can check out the trailer below:
