Following the Snowball, Chloe, Daisy and Max trailers, Universal Pictures has released the new Gidget trailer and poster for Illumination Entertainment sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2, opening in theaters on June 7, 2019. Gidget is voiced by Jenny Slate (Zootopia, Obvious Child) in the film.
The Secret Life of Pets 2 will follow summer 2016’s blockbuster about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy produce the sequel to the comedy that had the best opening ever for an original film, animated or otherwise. The film grossed $875.5 million worldwide on a budget of $75 million.
The voice cast includes Lake Bell, Hannibal Buress, Dana Carvey, Harrison Ford, Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Pete Holmes, Garth Jennings, Ellie Kemper, Nick Kroll, Bobby Moynihan, Patton Oswald, Jenny Slate, and Eric Stonestreet.
The Secret Life of Pets 2 will see the return of writer Brian Lynch (Minions) and once again be directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me series, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax).
