This morning brings the first trailer for The Boss Baby: Family Business, showing off the new story, a dastardly villain, and even Baby Ninjas…
The Boss Baby should not have worked. And yet, the film managed to be hilarious and touching in equal measures. As a Dad who’s had to watch it a ridiculous amount of times with my youngest, I’ve actually been interested to see how the sequel would play out. Today gives us our first look, and I’m down with it:
I love the idea of seeing the brothers as grown-ups, picking up on some of the threads from the previous film. While it seems a bit weird to find a way to de-age them once more, the humor and story elements look interesting enough to get me ready for this one.
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. Edwin 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.
The Boss Baby: Family Business is set to arrive in theaters (hopefully) on March 26, 2021.
