The heart of the upcoming Ted 2 is the anthropomorphic teddy bear’s quest to become a father, and it’s a quest that takes him from Tom Brady’s bedroom to the courtroom. In this new featurette, stars Seth MacFarlane, Mark Wahlberg, and Amanda Seyfried talk about how the question of Ted’s legal status was the natural next step in the foulmouthed bear’s story.

“In Ted 2, we wanted to evolve the character, and naturally, a person in his state would want to settle down and begin a life,” MacFarlane says, adding, “We figured eventually the subject of Ted’s legal status would come up.”

Ted 2 will be released June 26.
