Illumination Entertainment has released the first character trailer of The Secret Life of Pets 2, featuring Max (voiced by Patton Oswalt) taking a frightful trip to the vet. The Secret Life of Pets 2 will follow the 2016 blockbuster revolving around the lives our pets lead, after we leave for work or school everyday. Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri along with his longtime collaborator Janet Healy, will produce the sequel. The Secret Life of Pets 2 will see the return of writer Brian Lynch and once again be directed by Chris Renaud.
