Peter Rabbit 2 UK release date, age rating and parents guide

There are plenty of family films out this year and one of the first big names in the Peter Rabbit 2 UK release date (details below), which will see James Corden getting back on the horse following the slamming he got for the Cats movie. He stars as the title character once again, having voiced PR in the first film, and this time around he’ll be taking Peter on an even bigger adventure. 

The adaptation will once again combine live action with CGI animation, but the good news is that it isn’t anywhere near as disturbing a mix as the special effects in the Cats movie. You can check out the trailer below to see Peter Rabbit in action with all of the big name stars, including Margot Robbie following her success with both Birds Of Prey and Bombshell, which should help to put the film on the radar for younger families when the release date rolls around.

This time around Peter gets into mischief in the big city while Thomas McGregor and his new wife Bea are off on their honeymoon. It looks a whole lot like London, but then they don’t name it in the trailer, so we’re expecting it just to be referred to as the big city or something like that.

While there, Peter meets an old pal of his dad’s and the whole gang look like they get into a life of crime as they rob the big farmers market. Things don’t go well and everyone else gets captured leaving the ill-guided rabbit with the challenge of getting them back, learning the error of his ways and showing Mr McGregor that he needs to be a bit less of a Dickensian Dictator in the future.

Cast

In addition to James Corden as Peter Rabbit and Margot Robbie as Flopsy, the cast also includes Elizabeth Debicki (The Man From U.N.C.L.E) as Moody, Colin Moody as Benjamin Bunny, Lennie James as Barnabus, Rose Byrne as Bea and David Oyelowo as Percy McGregor. The big names also include Star Wars The Rise Of Skywalker stars Domhnall Gleeson as Thomas McGregor and Daisy Ridley as Cottontail, which adds to the Cats, Birds Of Prey and Bombshell links.

Peter Rabbit 2 UK release date

The UK release date for Pater Rabbit 2 is scheduled for Friday the 27th March 2020, which will give it a pretty solid run at the Easter break cinema binge. It’s out on the same weekend as Disney’s Mulan live action adaptation, so it will have some pretty significant family friendly viewing competition, which will make it tough, if not impossible to take the number spot. There’s also new James Bond film No Time To Die our the week after, adding to the challenge for the film.

Age rating and parents guide

The age rating for Peter Rabbit 2 will be confirmed by the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) in the UK a lot closer to the release date, but the first film was certified PG. It should be a similar story for the sequel if the trailer below is anything to go by with very little differentiating it from the 2018 opener in terms of the age rating.

Parents guide notes for the first film include mild threat and comic violence. There’s also petty crime in the mix as the gang hit the farmer’s market pretty hard, but then there’s bound to be a positive message and lesson in there somewhere to take that away a little.

Trailer

The Peter Rabbit 2 trailer sets the stall out for the film and for the most part it looks like a light-hearted family film for younger viewers. The low point in it all is the weird scene with the rotten apple early on, but hopefully that’s as bad as things get for the release when it arrives in March.
