He's baaaack! Everyone's favorite foul-mouthed teddy bear roared back to life on Thursday, Jan. 29, when Universal Pictures released the long-awaited trailer for Ted 2, the sequel to 2012's irreverent hit comedy Ted, starring Mark Wahlberg.
Like the original, the sequel is directed by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane (who also voices the character of Ted with a thick Boston accent). Wahlberg reprises his role as Ted's best friend, while Amanda Seyfried (who worked with MacFarlane on A Million Ways to Die in the West) plays the female lead, taking the baton from Mila Kunis.
As seen in the above trailer, the laugh-out-loud second movie finds Ted getting married and trying to start a family with his hot new wife (Jessica Barth, reprising her role as Tami-Lynn). Not surprisingly, he faces some obstacles along the way — namely the fact that he's, you know, a stuffed animal.
That's where Seyfried comes in. Told he has to prove his personhood in a court of law, Ted and his BFF hire the Lovelace actress as their lawyer, which leads to some pretty hilarious moments for the three leads.
If this little tease is any indication, Ted 2 promises to be just as crude and funny as the original — if not more so! The movie, which also stars Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman, hits theaters on June 26.
