There’s a popular opinion amongst animation lovers all around the world that the “good” animation stopped developing sometime in the 2010s.
We are here to break this stereotype with some fresh, amazing animated cartoons!
“The Secret Life of Pets” is among the popular new cartoons so we will also talk about the upcoming sequel.
At the beginning of the animation
Disney & Pixar collaborated in the 1990s and brought us “Toy Story”, one of the first “digital” a.k.a. fully animated cartoons.
Very soon after “Toy Story”, we got to witness the creative process of animated franchises such as “Shrek”, “Monsters, Inc.”, “Finding Nemo”, and of course “Ice Age”.
The year 2013 can be considered somewhat a big upgrade in the animation world, with the release of “Frozen”.
The “Despicable Me” franchise has 4 movies in total and it’s the top-grossing 3D animation cartoon of all time with its $3,708,073,676!
Speaking of “Despicable Me”, it was created via a collaboration between Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment, who have been creating many successful franchises since.
Some of their successful works include “Sing” which was released in 2016, as well as “The Secret Life of Pets”.

About “The Secret Life of Pets”
Let’s face it, ever since “Beethoven” and “101 Dalmatians” told us the stories from the puppy’s perspective, we’ve been obsessed with pet animations!
So you can bet I happy-cried when I watched “The Secret Life of Pets” back in 2016.
Especially because the story is about a stray puppy who’s finally saved from the streets.
The stray dog named Duke is taken in and now has to live with Max, the popular terrier pup.
When is “The Secret Life of Pets” part 3 coming out?
The official release date has not been revealed yet.
However, if we follow the timestamps of parts 1 & 2, which took place in 2016 and then in 2019, it’s highly likely that the next sequel will be released sometime in 2023.
Part 2 of “The Secret Life of Pets” included voice actors such as Kevin Hart, Ellie Kemper, Patton Oswalt, and even Harrison Ford!
We hope to hear Kevin Hart and Harrison Ford back at it in part 3!
