Universal Pictures and Peacock have released the new trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby: Family Business, coming to theaters and Peacock Premium (for no additional charge) on July 2.
The Boss Baby: Family Business is the sequel to the Oscar-nominated blockbuster comedy that earned more than $500 million worldwide.
The Boss Baby: Family Business moved from its previously-announced September 17, 2021 U.S theatrical release date to become the animated offering over the July Fourth weekend to provide ideal viewing options for both families who are ready to return to theaters or for those who want to watch, and re-watch, at home.
“Families are at the heart of our decision… to make DreamWorks Animation’s The Boss Baby: Family Business available to everyone this July Fourth weekend, and to give those families the freedom to choose whether to see this joyful, hilarious and heartfelt film from a big-screen theater seat or from the comfort of their own homes on Peacock,” said Jim Orr, President Domestic Distribution, Universal Pictures.
“Our Peacock subscribers love movies, so we are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with UFEG and to offer Peacock customers this premium content from one of the industry’s most beloved animation brands,” commented Matt Strauss, Chairman, Direct-to-Consumer and International, NBCUniversal.
Strauss added: “DreamWorks Animation films, from Trolls World Tour to Shrek and beyond are among Peacock’s top performing titles to date, and we’re certain that The Boss Baby: Family Business is sure to become this summer’s ultimate streaming event.”
In the sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s Oscar-nominated blockbuster comedy, the Templeton brothers — Tim (James Marsden, X-Men franchise) and his Boss Baby little bro Ted (Alec Baldwin) — have become adults and drifted away from each other.
Tim is now a married stay-at-home dad. Ted is a hedge fund CEO. But a new boss baby with a cutting-edge approach and a can-do attitude is about to bring them together again… and inspire a new family business.
Tim and his wife, Carol (Eva Longoria), the breadwinner of the family, live in the suburbs with their super-smartseven-year-old daughter Tabitha (Ariana Greenblatt, Avengers: Infinity War), and adorable new infant Tina (Amy Sedaris, Netflix’s BoJack Horseman).
Tabitha, who’s at the top her class at the prestigious Acorn Center for Advanced Childhood, idolizes her uncle Ted and wants to become like him, but Tim, still in touch with his overactive youthful imagination, worries that she’s working too hard and is missing out on a normal childhood.
When baby Tina reveals that she’s — ta-da! — a top secret agent for BabyCorp on a mission to uncover the dark secrets behind Tabitha’s school and its mysterious founder, Dr. Erwin Armstrong (Jeff Goldblum), it will reunite the Templeton brothers in unexpected ways, lead them to re-evaluate the meaning of family and discover what truly matters.
Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel also reprise their roles as Ted and Tim’s parents. The Boss Baby: Family Business is directed by returning filmmaker Tom McGrath and is produced by Jeff Hermann (Kung Fu Panda 3).
