The teaser also gives a first look at Josh Gad’s speedy Chuck, Danny McBride’s accident-prone and volatile Bomb and the presumably villainous pig Leonard, voiced by Bill Hader.

Other voice cast members include “Saturday Night Live” star Kate McKinnon, Keegan-Michael Key, Tony Hale, Ike Barinholtz, Hannibal Buress, Cristela Alonzo, Jillian Bell, Latin musician Romeo Santos and YouTube stars Smosh (Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla).
