This page is trivia about The Secret Life of Pets 2. Please add any trivia that pertain to that article.

  • This is second film from Illumination to have its DVD released in August, after The Lorax.
  • The Secret Life of Pets is the second Illumination film to become a franchise, following Despicable Me.
  • This is the first Illumination film to be produced in 1.85:1 aspect ratio since Sing (2016).
  • The second Illumination film to be released in June after Despicable Me 3.
  • This is the fifth Illumination film to use mild language ("turd" and "pissed" are both used once and God's name is taken in vain twice) after Hop (which used God's name in vain twice), The Lorax (which used "damn" once during the climax), the original The Secret Life of Pets (which used "hell" during a background song), and Despicable Me 3 (which used "boobs" once).
    • Thus, it also marks the first time a more vulgar word has been used in an Illumination film, regarding its PG rating from the MPAA and the fact that the word "piss" is extremely rare for animated family film (though it has been used sometimes in some PG-rated family films, such as The Goonies, The Mighty Ducks, Free Willy, and Tomorrowland). However, that word was censored in the UK in order to get a U classification.
  • Some trailers and TV spots contained some scenes that were not in the final film, such as the scene where Leonard (a minor character from the first film) throws a party again, the scene where Buddy messages himself with a mixer again while Mel tries to get to the bottom of the blender (which Buddy tells him to get out of), and the scene where Duke sticks his nose to a goat's butt, causing it to kick Duke. The former scene was cut for time constrictions while the latter two scenes were cut for kitchen abuse and sexual harassment (although the goat encounter scene can be found as a deleted scene in the DVD/Blu-ray bonus features).
  • This is also the last Illumination movie of the 2010’s to date.
  • This is the first Illumination sequel in which the main character is not voiced by the same voice actor as the original film; Patton Oswalt takes over Louis C.K.'s role as the voice of Max in this sequel.
  • This is the last Illumination film to include the 1967 MPAA logo in the end credits.
  • Due to the 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic, it marks the end of a 5-year streak that started with Minions.
