Imagine Pixar’s “Toy Story”. Now replace all the toys with pets. That’s basically the premise of Illumination Entertainment’s “The Secret Life of Pets”. The studio which brought you “Despicable Me” and introduced the world to the lovable Minions is taking us behind the scenes to see what pets are up to when nobody is around.
Check out “The Secret Life of Pets” teaser trailer from the makers of “Minions” on alcaTsar blog:
How can this concept fail? This is the same studio which has the fifth biggest box-office hit in the world with the “Minions”. They get characters and more importantly how to sell them. They sold us on those adorable Minions so how hard could it be to sell us on cats and dogs? Heck, a YouTube video of domestic animals do what they do probably could bank more than some of this Summers duds (I’m looking at you “Fantastic Four“).
Just for safety they’ve also assembled an incredible cast to voice these sure to be beloved pets. No holds barred comedians Louis C.K., current box-office sensation Kevin Hart, Nemo’s dad Albert Brooks and even Hannibal Burress fill out the cast.
“The Secret Life of Pets” will be released in the Philippines on the 18th of August 2016. Unfortunately, no release date is available for Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore at this time.
