The Boss Baby is back and reporting for business in DreamWorks Animation’s THE BOSS BABY: FAMILY BUSINESS, a hilarious sequel guaranteed to bring the whole family together for non-stop adventure and laughs. The Boss Baby Family Business is available to own on Digital and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray™ and DVD, featuring an all-new short from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Building on the success of the first film, welcome back brothers Ted (Alec Baldwin) and Tim (James Marsden) as they’re introduced to a brand-new boss baby, Tim’s daughter Tina (Amy Sedaris), who is on a mission from BabyCorp. The entertainment extends beyond the film with all-new exclusive bonus features offering endless fun and sure to get the entire family into the ‘back-to-school’ mode. These features include a brand-new animated short, deleted scene, gag reel, interactive Creative Experiment Labs, Boss Baby Art Class and more.
The Boss Baby: Family Business was a fun movie. We enjoyed this silly sequel when we saw it back in July. But I’ll be honest, it’s the bonus features that make this release fun! The new short, Precious Templeton: A Pony Tale, really is everything we needed. Precious, the pony from Boss Baby: Family Business deserved her own screen time, and now she has it. The interactive features of the Creative Experiment Lab and Art Class: How to Draw are great! These features are great when we hold family movie nights. Check out all the features offered:
