One of DreamWorks Animation surprise hits a few years ago was with The Boss Baby that hilariously pitted a suit-wearing baby against his older brother, but finally united to uncover the cuteness of puppies.
These children are now adults with seemingly different lives and nearly the same personalities. Once again, these adults must behave and be their childhood selves to uncover another diabolical plot in the making.
Alec Baldwin returns to voice the Boss Baby. Also, Lisa Kudrow and Jimmy Kimmel reprise their roles as the Templeton brothers’ parents. They’ll be joined with a new voice cast that includes Jeff Goldblum, Ariana Greenblatt, Eva Longoria, James Marsden, and Amy Sedaris. Tom McGrath returns to direct the sequel.
Here’s the full synopsis:
In the sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s blockbuster comedy, the Templeton brothers—Tim (James Marsden) and his Boss Baby little bro Ted (Alex 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 cutting-edge approach and 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), and adorable new infant Tina (Amy Sedaris). 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 Baby Corp. 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.
