To save his theatre from foreclosure, koala Buster Moon decides to host a singing competition with a $1,000 prize. But his assistant makes a mistake and adds two extra zeroes to the prize money, making it $100,000.
He quickly tries to correct it, but it’s too late – He hopes that by doing this, he will be able to raise enough money to keep his theatre open.
He has already started to promote the competition and has even managed to get some of the biggest names in the music industry to agree to be judges. With everything in place, Buster is confident that his theatre will be saved.
