In PETER RABBIT 2: THE RUNAWAY, Peter struggles to shake his mischievous reputation and determine what kind of rabbit he'll really be. It's a big idea but this sequel to the 2016 movie PETER RABBIT, based on the books of Beatrix Potter, tells the story in a kind and funny way. As he journeys outside of the garden, Peter finds a new world with people and animals who truly accept who he is — and he must decide whether to embrace a new life or go back home to his family.
Returning to voice Peter Rabbit is James Corden of "The Late Late Show," who told us about what fans can expect from THE RUNAWAY. "I think it’s a true evolution from the last film. I think it hangs on to all of the scale and the set pieces that people would have enjoyed from the first film." Corden added, "I actually think it’s a richer movie. I think it’s a funnier movie. I think people will really enjoy it."
Also returning from the first film is the voice of Peter’s sister, Mopsey Rabbit, Elizabeth Debicki, who boldly proclaimed that, "I’ve heard this from valid sources, all under the age of seven, that’s it’s as good as the first one, maybe better."
Lending more than their voices are Domhnall Gleeson and Rose Byrne, who spoke with us about Peter Rabbit has had a place in the hearts of children for over a century. Byrne said, "There’s a universal quality to him that still resonates now, of mischief and getting in trouble. You got to navigate that growing up." Gleeson added that "Peter Rabbit experiences some sort of self-doubt in the film. Which is a really unusual thing to see a kid go through, but I think it’s a really true thing, kind of questioning yourself."
