New Peter Rabbit 2 film features Gloucester

Peter Rabbit 2, starring Margot Robbie and James Corden, sees Peter run away to Gloucester – with filming also taking place in the city. It hits UK cinemas in March 2020.

The Beatrix Potter-inspired Hollywood film Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway is due for release in UK cinemas on Friday 27 March 2020 – and sees the fluffy hero running away to Gloucester!

As well as being central to the storyline, filming also took place in the city of Gloucester – with cinemagoers being able to clearly spot Gloucester Docks in the Peter Rabbit sequel.

The official Sony Entertainment Pictures trailer for Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway (seen below) even shows scenes of Gloucester Docks at 1.20.

Starring Rose Byrne as Bea and Domhnall Gleeson as Mr McGregor, as well as featuring the voices of James Corden as Peter Rabbit and Margot Robbie as Flopsy Rabbit, the family adventure sees Peter embark on adventures outside of the garden for the first time, as he tries to shake his mischievous reputation – including plotting a heist at Gloucester farmers’ market!

Launched just in time for families to enjoy during the Easter holidays, IMdb lists filming locations for Peter Rabbit 2 as primarily in Australia, as well as Richmond in the UK, but with historic ties to Beatrix Potter’s Tailor of Gloucester, it is a real coup for the city of Gloucester to be so key to the storyline of a major Hollywood film.
