My cat always keeps me guessing, even when I am home, so I can only imagine what she does when we are away!  Thanks to our partnership with Universal Home Entertainment we have some exciting news to share about THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS… Read on!

What Do Your Pets Do When You’re Not Home? #TheSecretLifeOfPets #PetsPack

Just in time for the holiday season, if you haven’t already, you’ll find out the answer to the question “Ever wonder what your pets do when you’re not home?” when THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS comes to Digital HD November 22, 2016 and 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand December 6, 2016 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment!

My sons and I loved this movie at the theater and can’t wait to bring it home.  Full of laughter, heart-warming moments and an interesting peek into the secret life we never knew our pets lived, THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS is a wonderful family film that you will all enjoy watching again and again.


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.

In addition to owning the wonderful film, the other thing I love about owning a movie on Blu-ray or Digital HD is all the extras you get to enhance the experience.  The 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD versions of THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS features almost an hour of bonus content.  Check out what each version includes:


The film will be available on 4K Ultra HD in a combo pack which includes 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray and Digital HD with UltraViolet. The 4K Ultra HD will include all bonus features on the Blu-ray disc.
