Peter Rabbit 2 plot

The film will follow the rebellious rabbit as he gets up to more adventures – with Peter this time venturing outside the McGregors’ garden and coming into contact with a whole new world.

The official synopsis provided by Sony Pictures reads, “In Peter Rabbit 2, the lovable rogue is back. Bea, Thomas, and the rabbits have created a makeshift family, but despite his best efforts, Peter can’t seem to shake his mischievous reputation.

“Adventuring out of the garden, Peter finds himself in a world where his mischief is appreciated. But when his family risks everything to come looking for him, Peter must figure out what kind of bunny he wants to be.”
