illuminations_pet_filmIllu­mi­na­tion Enter­tain­ment is not con­tent to rest on the lau­rels of their Oscar nom­i­na­tions and sequel pro­duc­tions… Chris Meledandri’s ani­ma­tion com­pany is rush­ing head-first into an aggres­sive pro­duc­tion sched­ule. Barely ten days after announc­ing a third Despi­ca­ble Me and a new Dr. Seuss film, Illu­mi­na­tion has added another film to their release slate, an as-yet Unti­tled Pet Movie set for release Feb­ru­ary 12, 2016.

Three big name actors have been brought in to voice the main char­ac­ters in Unti­tled Pet Movie. Louis C.K. is a quick-witted ter­rier res­cue, Eric Ston­estreet is Duke, the new pet in the house and a threat to the ter­ri­ers sov­er­eignty, and Kevin Hart as a rab­bit named Snowball.

As is typ­i­cal of Illumination’s projects, Chris Meledan­dri will pro­duce with long­time col­lab­o­ra­tor Janet Healy. Despi­ca­ble Me 1 & 2’s Chris Renaud will direct the project, with co-director Yarrow Cheney. The film is writ­ten by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.

The story is of a quick-witted ter­rier res­cue who gets agi­tated when his mas­ter brings home a sloppy mon­grel named Duke. Things get worse when the two dogs find them­selves stuck in the streets of New York City, until they meet an adorable white bunny Snow­ball who might cause more trou­ble than expected.

It turns out that Snow­ball is the leader of an army of pets that were aban­doned and are deter­mined to get back at human­ity and every owner-loving pet. The dogs must thwart this plot and make it back in time for dinner.

The Min­ions is the next big release for Illu­mi­na­tions, set for release on July 10, 2015, fol­lowed by aother Dr. Seuss story Dr. Seuss’ The Cat In The Hat in late 2015. The Unti­tled Pet Movie hits the­aters on Feb­ru­ary 12, 2016 with a sec­ond Unti­tled movie releas­ing Decem­ber of 2016. Despi­ca­ble Me 3 is due June 30, 2017. The cur­rent Illu­mi­na­tions slate ends with a remake of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christ­mas! on Novem­ber 17, 2017.
