Sing 2, the sequel to the 2016 animated musical comedy film Sing, is set to hit theaters on December 22, 2021. The film features a star-studded cast, including Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, and Nick Kroll, among others.
The story follows Buster Moon (voiced by McConaughey), a koala who has saved his struggling theater by hosting a singing competition in the first film. In Sing 2, Buster teams up with a streetwise musician named Clay (voiced by Egerton) to put on a show that will bring them all the way to the top of the entertainment industry.
The trailer for Sing 2 promises an epic adventure that will take the characters from the streets of their hometown to the glitz and glamour of the entertainment capital, Redshore City. The story will explore themes of friendship, perseverance, and the power of music to bring people together.
One of the most exciting aspects of Sing 2 is the addition of new characters, including a diva named Porsha (voiced by Johansson) and a rock-and-roll porcupine named Clay’s girlfriend (voiced by Kelly). The film also features original songs, including one by the legendary musician Bono.
Sing was a box office hit, grossing over $634 million worldwide, and earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. The sequel is expected to be just as successful, with fans eagerly anticipating its release.
In a statement, writer and director Garth Jennings said, “Sing 2 pushes the boundaries of animation to create a musical comedy that’s bigger, bolder, and more ambitious than the first film. We can’t wait for audiences to see what we’ve been working on for the past few years.”
Sing 2 is sure to be a crowd-pleaser for families and music lovers alike, bringing the joy and excitement of live performance to the big screen. With its talented cast, catchy songs, and heartwarming story, it’s bound to be one of the biggest hits of the holiday season.
