The trailer has arrived for The Boss Baby: Family Business, the sequel to the 2017 CG-animated hit with Alec Baldwin voicing a suit-wearing, briefcase-carrying baby.
The plot picks up with Ted (Baldwin, returning as the voice) and Tim (James Marsden) now as adults. They’ve drifted, Ted a successful CEO and Tim a stay-at-home-dad with two daughters – the youngest of whom, Tina (Amy Sedaris), reveals she’s a secret agent for BabyCorp. The brothers and Tina are soon on a mission to stop Dr. Erwin Armstrong (Jeff Goldblum) and his dastardly plans. Of course, the plot includes a reason to have Ted and Tim back as little ones.
Director Tom McGrath returns at the helm for the follow-up, which looks like a fun ride for those that enjoyed the first. Despite mixed reviews, The Boss Baby topped $US527 million at the worldwide box office, even spawning an animated Netflix series that’s just had its fourth season arrive this month.
The Boss Baby: Family Business, also featuring voice work from Eva Longoria, Ariana Greenblatt, Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel, will be hitting Australian cinemas on March 25th and US cinemas on March 26th, 2021.
Official synopsis for The Boss Baby: Family Business:
In the sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s Oscar®-nominated blockbuster comedy, the Templeton brothers—Tim (James Marsden, X-Men franchise) and his Boss Baby little bro Ted (Alec Baldwin)—have become adults and drifted away from each other. Tim is now a married stay-at-home dad. Ted is a hedge fund CEO. But a new boss baby with a cutting-edge approach and a can-do attitude is about to bring them together again… and inspire a new family business.
Tim and his wife, Carol (Eva Longoria), the breadwinner of the family, live in the suburbs with their super-smart 7-year-old daughter Tabitha (Ariana Greenblatt, Avengers: Infinity War), and adorable new infant Tina (Amy Sedaris, Netflix’s BoJack Horseman). Tabitha, who’s at the top her class at the prestigious Acorn Center for Advanced Childhood, idolizes her Uncle Ted and wants to become like him, but Tim, still in touch with his overactive youthful imagination, worries that she’s working too hard and is missing out on a normal childhood.
When baby Tina reveals that she’s—ta-da!—a top secret agent for BabyCorp on a mission to uncover the dark secrets behind Tabitha’s school and its mysterious founder, Dr. Erwin Armstrong (Jeff Goldblum), it will reunite the Templeton brothers in unexpected ways, lead them to re-evaluate the meaning of family and discover what truly matters.
Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel also reprise their roles as Ted and Tim’s parents.
