Harrison Ford Secret Life of Pets

Han Solo. Indiana Jones. Rick Deckard. Jack Ryan. Harrison Ford has embodied several cinematic legends over the course of his storied career, but he’s never lent his voice to an animated movie – until now.

Illumination’s The Secret Life of Pets 2 has been releasing a new character-centric trailer every few weeks for what feels like an eternity, but their latest finally gives us our first look at Ford’s character: a dog named Rooster. Check it out below.

the grinch trailer

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: it’s much easier to relate to the grumpy, Christmas-hating Grinch than those basic Whos.)
