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.
It is directed by Chris Renaud and written by Brian Lynch, and is a sequel to the 2016 film The Secret Life of Pets. Most of the cast members will reprise their roles except for Louis C.K., who will be replaced by Patton Oswalt. Additional cast members include Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Harrison Ford, and Pete Holmes.
The film is scheduled for release on June 7, 2019, by Universal Pictures.
