Universal Pictures set a digital release for “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” with the digital version releasing on August 13th and the 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD. and On Demand version releasing on August 27th.
The animated-comedy features the voice talents of Patton Oswalt (TV’s “A.P. Bio”), Kevin Hart (Ride Along Series), Eric Stonestreet (TV’s Modern Family), Jenny Slate (Despicable Me 3), Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), Lake Bell (TV’s Children’s Hospital), Nick Kroll (Sing), Dana Carvey (Wayne’s World), Ellie Kemper (TV’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors series), Bobby Moynihan (TV’s “Saturday Night Live”) and Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones franchise) as Rooster the farm dog.
Chris Renaud, who also directed the original movie, returned to the franchise to direct the sequel. The movie opened at number one against FOX’s “Dark Phoenix” back in June with a $46.6M debut. “The Secret Life of Pets 2” went on to make over $354.5M for the studio, but failed to top the original’s $104.3M opening in 2016, and the film’s $875.4M gross.
The new story follows the favorite Pets and their growing families in a new chapter that explores the deep bond between them and the humans that love them. In the movie, Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with major life changes after Katie’s marriage and the arrival of a toddler, Liam. Meanwhile, Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip. Snowball (Kevin Hart) believes, despite the other pets’ teasing, that he’s a superhero after his owner starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, and he has to summon the courage to become the hero he’s been pretending to be.
