Watch: ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ Trailer Features Party Animals

Universal has released the first trailer for Illumination Entertainment’s animated comedy “The Secret Life of Pets” more than a year before its release on July 8, 2016.

The trailer reveals that pets don’t do what owners expect when they’re away. One of the more memorable bits features a dachshund getting a massage from blender blades.

Exhibitors gave the footage a warm reception at CinemaCon in April during Universal’s presentation. Voice talent includes Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Jenny Slate, Bobby Moynihan, Hannibal Buress and Albert Brooks.

Chris Renaud, who has directed both “Despicable Me” movies, is the director of “Secret Life,” which is co-directed by Yarrow Cheney from a script by Brian Lynch, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio. Producers are Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy.
