The Secret Life of Pets

Written by Brendan Ihmig

If you are a pet owner, be that of a dog, a cat, a bird or a fish, I am positive you have wondered what they get up to when you are not at home. The Secret Life of Pets, 3D animated comedy film by Illumination Entertainment, will try to answer that for you. Staring Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Steve Coogan, Ellie Kemper, Bobby Moynihan, Lake Bell, Hannibal Buress and Albert Brooks, The Secret Life of Pets looks is another animation that has animals as the main characters and gives the perspective of the world from their and our view.

From the original trailer and more recent released trailers, it looks like this is going to be a fun watch for the whole family. With amazing animations from the creators of Despicable Me and Minions, cracking comedy from the likes of Louis C.K and Kevin Hart and music by Academy Award winner Alexandre Desplat, this is one animation I am really looking forward to this year.

If you have not seen the trailer yet, take a moment and watch it below.

Some people have commented that this film is just "Toy Story with Pets" and won't really deliver much in terms of actual story. While the premise of film (based on the trailers) would suggest just that, I still think that the story will be unique in its own right and besides, this would not be the first (nor last) film to tell this sort of story and I am alright with that. Toy Story was release 20 odd years ago, so I think it is more than acceptable to release a film now, even if it told the identical story - there will always be a new audience, ones who would not have even have seen Toy Story (like my son) and who will thoroughly enjoy it (like my son and his mother and father).

The Secret Life of Pets is set to release on the 8th of July 2016 and is distributed by Universal Pictures.
