Illumination has released three new character posters for Sing 2! Get ready to hear some spectacular songs this holiday season when Sing 2, the next installment from Illumination’s animated franchise, hits the big screen! Join Buster Moon the always optimistic koala, voiced by Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey, and his dazzling all-star group of performers as they prepare to put on their most extravagant show yet in the entertainment capital of the world. The only thing standing in their way? First, they must persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star to join them. This icon will be played by the one and only Bono, in his animated film debut!
To accomplish their lofty goal they must first get the attention of world famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by the ruthless mogul wolf Jimmy Crystal, voiced by Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale. When faced with this dilemma Gunter, voiced by Nick Kroll, pitches a truly outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, that their new show will star the legendary lion rock star Clay Calloway (Bono). The major problem with this plan is Buster has never met Calloway, who removed himself from the public eye after the tragic loss of his wife. Things go from bad to worse when Buster realizes Mr. Crystal is an egocentric gangster who is more likely to drop someone off the roof of a building than be lied to.
As the pressure and sinister threats from Mr. Crystal mount, Buster and Gunter dream up an out of this world theatrical masterpiece. Behind the scenes problems arise as Rosita, voiced by Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon, loses her leading role in the show to Mr. Crystal’s spoiled daughter Porsha, voiced by Halsey. Desperate to save this show and his life, Buster begins a quest to find Calloway and persuade him to return to the spotlight.
What starts as a dream of big time success becomes a reminder of the true power music has to heal a broken heart. Sing 2 combines Illumination’s signature humor and heart with dozens of rock and pop hits to create a feel good cinematic experience.
Sing 2 brings back the voice talents of Golden Globe winner Taron Egerton as earnest gorilla Johnny, Scarlett Johansson as rocker porcupine Ash, and Tori Kelly as shy elephant Meena. Leading the team is acclaimed filmmaker Garth Jennings as writer and director. Pharrell Williams, Letitia Wright, Eric Andre, and Chelsea Peretti will be bringing exciting new characters to this highly anticipated sequel! Sing 2 is produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Janet Healy.
