Hey guys, Jana here,
I know what I’m giving for Christmas this year, and it’s ‘The Secret Life of Pets‘ on 4K Ultra HD!! Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures have hit this one way out of the park with ‘The Secret Life Of Pets‘! It was a favorite of not only my kids, but myself as well. The film comes out on several formats. Beginning November 22, 2016 you can watch it on Digital HD, if you’d prefer to wait for the hard copy, you can pick that up December 6, 2016 on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand.
If Universal and Illumination hadn’t done enough with the various formats we could be enjoying the film, the bonus features are out of this world, too. Starting with three hilarious mini-movies, one of which, ‘Mower Minions‘, was seen in theaters.
The premise of the story is one of the greatest I’ve ever seen. The question of “What do our pets do when we’re not at home?” has finally been answered and it’s unflinchingly funny! Some of Hollywood’s funniest have come together to voice the animated pets in this project starting with Louis C.K., Ellie Kemper, Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Lake Bell and Dana Carvey plus many more.
Taking place in a Manhattan apartment building, Max’s life as a favorite pet is turned upside down, when his owner brings home a sloppy mongrel named Duke. They have to put their quarrels behind when they find out that an adorable white bunny named Snowball is building an army of lost pets determined to take revenge
