Hollywood’s newest furry friends have escaped from the studio to wish the people of Bradford a special Happy Christmas on the big screen.

In what’s set to be the big family blockbuster next summer,  the characters from The Secret Lives of Pets can be seen in full festive celebration on the Big Screen wishing everyone Season’s Greetings with Bradford UNESCO City of Film.

Watch out for these adorable characters including Snowball the rabbit and Chloe the cat who with the rest of the pet pack get up to mischief while their owners are out at work.

Bradford UNESCO City of Film had the short film specially commissioned for the Big Screen by Universal Pictures.

David Wilson, Director of Bradford UNESCO City of Film, said: “Being able to screen special previews with our own unique messaging on is part of our ongoing partnership with Universal. This animated comedy from the makers of Despicable Me is set to be a real hit with families next year and so it’s great to be able to share this special piece of festive programming with the people of Bradford.”
