Snowball the rabbit channels his superhero swagger in the latest character trailer from The Secret Life of Pets sequel. While the first teaser revolved around the first film's protagonist Max, the second one turned the gaze on Chloe the tabby cat.

"With great power comes great adorability", we are told in the beginning of the trailer as Captain Snowball dons a skin-hugging blue superhero suit, with his cape flying high as he overlooks the cityscape from his balcony. Voiced by Kevin Hart, Snowball quickly takes charge of recruiting his army of stuffed animals to save the city while his owner attends school.

Although Max, the Jack Russell Terrier, was voiced by Louis CK in the previous film, he has now been replaced by Patton Oswalt for the sequel. Jenny Slate, Eric Stonestreet, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Dana Cravey, Hannibal Burress and Bobby Moynihan will be reprising their roles in the second installment. The new cast members include Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Pete Holmes and Harrison Ford.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 is described  in the official synopsis as one that will "follow summer 2016’s blockbuster about the lives our pets lead after we leave for work or school each day".

The sequel will be financed by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy. Director Chris Reaud and writer Brian Lynch will also be returning for the follow-up.
