Ginger (now voiced by Thandiwe Newton) is leading the pack to break back into the enclosure after they get news that their old pals are in further danger. The trailer shows them taking on gun-toting moles, electric fences, and laser ducks to get the gang back to safety.

When Ginger initially gets back inside, she’s greeted by a familiar voice beckoning down a spiral staircase. After taking in her trademark farmer boots, Mrs. Tweedy is revealed to have a new-age makeover, telling Ginger: “Now you’ve had the appetizer… welcome to the future.”
