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 will produce the sequel to the comedy that had the best opening ever for an original film, animated or otherwise.

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).

Critics Reviews:

It’s never a great sign when the biggest laughs a movie gets are during the end credits.June 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review… Sara Stewart New York Post 

Despite its humor – and despite some genuinely aww-inspiring moments – “The Secret Life of Pets 2” is kind of forgettable.June 6, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review… Kristen Page-Kirby Washington Post

If the knock on “The Secret Life of Pets” was that it was a rip-off of “Toy Story,” then the second film better grounds itself in its own universe. Like its main three characters, it has learned to be comfortable in its own animated skin.June 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review… Mark Kennedy Associated Press

At least people will laugh with this film because it perfectly draws its humor from the tendencies of cats and dogs, from a cat’s magnetic desire to knock over objects to a dog’s natural instinct to chase a ball at any cost.June 5, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review… Samantha Incorvaia Arizona Republic
