DreamWorks Animation has announced that they have moved up the premiere date for the upcoming sequel film "The Boss Baby: Family Business". Originally slated for a September 17, 2021 release, the film will now premiere on Friday, July 2, 2021 day and date with theatrical on Peacock.
"Families are at the heart of our decision today to make DreamWorks Animation's The Boss Baby: Family Business available to everyone this July Fourth weekend, and to give those families the freedom to choose whether to see this joyful, hilarious and heartfelt film from a big-screen theater seat or from the comfort of their own homes on Peacock," said Jim Orr, President Domestic Distribution, Universal Pictures in a statement.
The sequel to 2017's Oscar®-nominated blockbuster comedy, "Boss Baby", the film will bring back the Templeton brothers-Tim (James Marsden, X-Men franchise) and his Boss Baby little bro Ted (Alec Baldwin). The duo has unfortunately drifted away from each other in adulthood. 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 seven-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.
"Boss Baby" earned over $500 million at the worldwide box office.
