The Boss Baby 2: About the Movie
The Boss Baby 2 or The Boss Baby: Family Business, is the sequel to the hugely successful and popular The Boss Baby from 2017. The original film blew way past its expectations. While the film spent a budget of around 175 million US dollars on the production of the film, the sales for the film were off charts. The film made money in excess of 500 million US dollars and went on to become one of the bestselling franchises. It was also awarded several accolades and featured in many award shows. It was also nominated for the Best Animated Feature Academy Award. The movie was noteworthy for its time, and made a huge sum of money doing what it did. The Boss Baby was a huge commercial success for the producers. And it looks like they are on that same path with Boss Baby 2.
The Boss Baby is a direct sequel to the first Boss Baby movie, and takes place 40 years later in the story. Ted, who is now a successful business pioneer, is now a dad. And the story is all about his daughter Tina, the new Boss Baby. Tina is an amazing Boss Baby and again enlists the help of the Templeton brothers, a crucial team in the story. Tina, along with the help of her dad and her uncle, is on a journey against a new villain. And we hope she holds the triumph in the end. Alec Baldwin has returned again as the original Boss Baby Ted. He is Tina’s dad and holds his own place in the story. The casting for the film is definitely excellent.
