Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) has brought the second installment of the ‘Ted’ series to the silver screen with the online release of the Ted 2 trailer. The film is set to hit theaters on June 26th and stars Mark Wahlberg (Lone Survivor) and writer/director Seth MacFarlane bot reprising their roles as John & Ted, respectively. In the new installment Ted marries his girlfriend from the first movie, Tami-Lynn (played by Jessica Barth) and the two decide to have a baby. Obvious problems aside it turns out that the government has a say, stating; because Ted is not a human he cannot be a parent. A legal battle will eventually ensue.
It’s pretty safe to say, simply judging from the trailer, Ted 2 will feature plenty of classic Seth MacFarlane shtick that we have all come to know and love. The film also will feature another MacFarlane staple with the cameos of a number of stars such as Morgan Freeman (The Shawshank Redemption) and Liam Neeson (Taken). However I did not see a mention of Mila Kunis to return to her role as Lori, John’s wife.
The trailer also eludes to some decent action, but doesn’t get into too much depth as to why or how it happens. But, the most exciting thing about the new Ted movie is the return of everyone’s “savior of the universe.” FLASH!!!
