The latest trailer for The Secret Life of Pets 2 introduces Tiffany Haddish’s Daisy. Illumination has been slowly teasing the highly anticipated sequel with character trailers since late last year, beginning with Patton Oswalt’s Max, who was previously played by Louis C.K. The newest character trailer puts the focus on Daisy as she enlists Captain Snowball for a top secret dangerous mission. The trailer reunites Haddish with fellow comedian Kevin Hart and it looks like there could be something fishy about this mission.
Tiffany Haddish plays a Shih Tzu named Daisy in The Secret Life of Pets 2 and she is the new pet who is responsible for Snowball getting in over his head, which is why Max and the gang have to go on a mission of their own to save him. The brief new trailer already shows the chemistry between Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish as Snowball tries to hide his secret identity before changing into his Captain Snowball costume and helping Daisy on her mysterious mission.
Illumination has been doing an excellent job on the promotional campaign for The Secret Life of Pets 2, teasing out these new character trailers every few weeks. In addition to the aforementioned Max and Daisy trailers, the studio has released trailers for Chloe and Snowball, with the official site announcing that there are more to come. As each trailer has been released, fans of the original movie are starting to get more of an idea of what exactly the sequel will be about and how some of the new characters will fit into the storyline.
So far, the last two Secret Life of Pets 2 trailers have arguably been the most entertaining. Snowball’s solo trailer featured him doing “superhero stuff” and the latest one with Daisy continues on that premise, except that he’s about to try some real superhero stuff as he helps Daisy on her mission. Obviously, Snowball isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, which will more than likely result in some pretty humorous moments between him and Daisy. With that being said, one can’t help but think that Daisy might have an ulterior motive going on under the surface.
The Secret Life of Pets 2 hits theaters on June 7th, so there’s plenty of time to get introduced to new characters and reacquainted with some old favorites. The first installment was met with generally favorable reviews and it was a box office success, earning $875.5 million globally. Considering that it only cost $75 million to make, a sequel was inevitable. This does put a lot of pressure on the sequel to perform at the box office when it debuts this summer. We’ll just have to wait and see how the movie does compared to the first when June rolls around. For now, you can watch the Daisy trailer below, provided by the Illumination YouTube channel.
