Peter Rabbit 2 Review


Peter Rabbit 2 release date | cast, plot, trailer, latest news - Radio Times

Good Morning Lovelies,

Lockdown was a weird time for film releases to say the least. Especially when it came to children’s films. Whilst some families and features thrived, others failed to stand out. However, Peter Rabbit 2 managed to do both. Continuing to do so from today, as it is released digitally and on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Voiced by James Corden, Rose Byrne and Domhnall Gleeson reappear to tell a new story about the famous rabbit. When Byrne’s Bea’s book does incredibly well, she decides to embark on a tour of the country to meet book publisher Nigel Basil-Jones. However, Peter isn’t happy when her new book idea makes him put to be a villain and decides to runaway.

Director Will Gluck has been lucky here. The film is a sweet and fitting summer feature. It works with both the ideals of Easter and the need for comfort from a classic character. One many adore. The story thrives and is able to hop on to the green green grass of success easily from this.

It may not be or stick to the classic narrative of Beatrice Potter’s world, but viewers won’t mind. They will simply find a way to embrace it with ease. The characters easy movement from a not so likeable first feature appearance to the one in this sequel, ensures it works well. Something even younger audience members will find.

The film pokes fun at itself in fact, with many dogs at the reactions the first one got. Highlighting how Gluck and the team don’t mind hopping onto what was being said and using it to make something better. A very clever filmmakers choice.

Whilst the film is no award winning feature, it has a charm to it that will keep the whole family entertained. It is light-hearted, innocent and fun. Something cinema needs to be at the moment, easing us all in with its charm. Fans of Potter’s books may not enjoy it, but with the sun shining, anyone can find sweetness in it.
