An addition to the family brings new responsibilities in ‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’.

Terrier Max is coping with some major life changes. His owner is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic. On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke encounter canine-­intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a terrifying turkey, all of which only elevates Max’s anxiety. Luckily, Max gets some guidance from veteran farm dog Rooster, who pushes Max to ditch his neurosis, find his inner alpha, and give Liam a little more freedom.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 is a 3D computer animated comedy produced by Illumination, directed by Chris Renaud, co-directed by Jonathan del Val, and written by Brian Lynch. The film features the voices of Patton Oswalt (who replaces Louis C.K.), Eric Stonestree, Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Tiffany Haddish, and Academy Award® nominee Harrison Ford (in his animated-film debut).
