Secret Life of Pets 2: Now Available on BluRay and Digital + #Giveaway #TheSecretLifeofPets2


Thanks to UPHE for providing me with a copy of this film for review. All thoughts are my own.

Secret Life of Pets 2 explores the emotional lives of our pets, the deep bond between them, the families that love them and answers the question: What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home? This movie was definitely the hit of the summertime for our family. It's one of the movies I most looked forward to seeing and gave me the perfect reason to take the dates on a date. Now that we're able to watch this amazing movie at home, we're having lots of family movie nights!


The Perfect Movie Night Movie for the Whole Family!

I was so excited to put The Secret Life of Pets BluRay out for my kiddos to see after school!


The perfect movie for everyone arrives home this summer with the irreverent yet heartfelt sequel to the blockbuster sensation in The Secret Life of Pets 2, debuting on Digital August 13, 2019 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand August 27, 2019.  From Illumination, the studio that brought you the original Despicable Me, Minions and Sing franchises, the highly anticipated follow up to the hit animated film led by a star-studded comedic cast reunites all of our favorite Pets and their growing families in a new chapter that explores the deep bond between them and the humans that love them. The 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital versions of the film are packed with more than 90 minutes* of bonus content only when you own, including two brand new, laugh-out-loud funny mini-movies - Super Gidget, featuring the film’s adorable Pomeranian Gidget and her best friend Max and Minion Scouts, starring everyone’s comical little helpers, the Minions. Additionally included are deleted scenes, DIY and drawing tutorials as well as a special interactive Captain Snowball Motion Comic allowing viewers to direct our boisterous bunny hero on his next move exclusive to the 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray™ versions!  As the dog days of summer come to an end, join this endearing cast of four-legged friends for a quality movie night of family fun with the film that uniquely reminds us of why we love our own pets and what makes them so very special.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 explores the emotional lives of our pets, the deep bond between them, the families that love them and answers the question: What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home? Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with major life changes after Katie’s marriage and the arrival of a toddler, Liam. Meanwhile, Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip. And Snowball (Kevin Hart) believes, despite the other pets’ teasing, that he’s a superhero after his owner starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s been pretending to be.

Our favorite family movie night of the summer!

We couldn't wait to watch The Secret Life of Pets 2 at home! Hubby hadn't seen it yet, so he was excited to see the follow up to one of our favorite animated movies. As parents, this movie really resonated with me and Sacha. Of course, we love the action and excitement surrounding the pets, but the addition of a toddler/preschooler to the family made it all the more relatable.

The kiddos, of course, love all of the pets. Little Bean even picked out Secret Life of Pets 2 'big girl undies' when we went to do our back to school shopping. My girl has been wearing her Max and Gidgit undies every day! We love the different storylines throughout the movie, and voice cast for this movie is absolutely fantastic. Hubby is a huge Harrison Ford fan, so he loved hearing him as Rooster. Tiffany Haddish had me laughing a lot, too.

While the movie is sweet, I also love how the characters work together, promote kindness and love for all, overcoming life's obstacles, and being courageous.

The film features an all-star voice cast including Patton Oswalt (TV’s “A.P. Bio”), Kevin Hart (Ride Along Series), Eric Stonestreet (TV’s Modern Family), Jenny Slate (Despicable Me 3), Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), Lake Bell (TV’s Children’s Hospital), Nick Kroll (Sing), Dana Carvey (Wayne’s World), Ellie Kemper (TV’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors series), Bobby Moynihan (TV’s “Saturday Night Live”) and Harrison Ford (Indiana Jones franchise) in his first-ever role in an animated film as new farm dog, Rooster.

To celebrate the film's release, enjoy one of my favorite clips from the movie, "At The Vet."
