New movie fan reactions: Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway
Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway is the sequel to the 2018 film Peter Rabbit. The live-action/ computer-animated film stars Rose Byrne and Domhnall Gleeson, as well as James Corden and Margot Robbie in voice roles.

Film critic Scott Menzel said he found Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway to be very fun and even liked it more than the original.
We went to see Peter Rabbit 2 last night and truthfully, I found it to be a whole lot of fun. I loved the Hollywood commentary about franchising and merchandising as well the heist/family subplots. It was very funny too and overall, I liked it more than the first. #PeterRabbit2 pic.twitter.com/AGl4yAyGsx
