Great news! Looking to purchase the Digital HD version of The Secret Life of Pets? Well, your wait is about to come to an end! The official release has just been announced. November 22nd! And for those of you who want to purchase the DVD or the Blu-ray, you don’t have to wait that much longer. That release date has been slated for December 6th. Mark those calendars!



The entire family hit the theatres to see this movie and we had such a great time watching the film. I LOVE movies that keep everyone in mind – kids and parents alike. The Secret Life of Pets did just that. EVERYONE WAS LAUGHING. You have to appreciate a film that makes you feel like you had a date night with your significant other when you truly just wanted to take your kids out on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

Check out the trailer in case you need a refresher of the story line.


While some characters clearly stole the show for me…


You can’t help but fall in love with everyone in this movie.  What a great story to follow along with!

Official Synopsis: 

In their fifth fully animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, a comedy about the lives our pets lead when we leave for work or school. Max, voiced by Louis C.K., is a loyal terrier living a perfectly happy existence until his owner, Katie (Ellie Kemper) brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet) a big, boisterous mutt she finds at the shelter. When Max and his unruly new “roommate” slip away from their dog-walker, they find themselves lost in the urban jungle of New York City. In an attempt to stay ahead of animal control and a rebel band of abandoned pets led by an unhinged bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), they put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home.

  1. I can’t wait to buy this one. We went to a screening and then again when it came out. So cute. Kevin Hart nailed the voice of the crazy bunny.

  2. I was bummed that we missed this when it was on! We wanted to watch it so much! So happy to know it’s going to be on blu-ray soon.

  3. My kiddo loved this movie! It is one of the few movies I let him see in the theaters and he LOVED IT! I can’t wait to see it come out on DVD!

  4. I thought this movie looked so cute but I never got around to seeing it in theatres. Once it’s out on Blu Ray I can bring it home and watch it!

  5. This movie looks super cute. I wasn’t able to take the kids to see it at the movies, but I know they’re gonna love it!

  6. I took both of my boys to see this movie over the summer and we loved it. It was so cute how the pets had this whole secret life going on while their masters were at work.

  7. What a suitable film for relaxing. I’ve been waiting for so long since the trailer has been released. This film doesn’t disappoint me. Thumbs up.
