“Sing,” a 2016 animated musical comedy, was a smash and is still at the top of the list of highest-grossing films that never won the box office in the United States (via Box Office Mojo). Calatonia is a fun family film about a city populated by anthropomorphic animal residents. When Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey), the owner of the koala theatre, decided to host a singing competition to raise funds for his failing business, his assistant made a mistake and added extra digits to the prize money announcement, resulting in an overwhelming turnout and even more stress for the overworked theatre owner.
The star-studded picture, as well as its catchy music and touching finale, were a hit with fans. The sequel to the hit film, “Sing 2,” was announced in 2017, but the release date has been pushed back several times in recent years (via Deadline). The COVID-19 epidemic slowed manufacturing furthermore, but a new release date was been revealed. Everything we know about “Sing 2” so far is included below.
When will Sing 2 be released?
“Sing 2” has undergone a number of detours throughout production. Its release date was originally slated for December 25, 2020, however, it was then moved back to July 2, 2021, according to The Hollywood Reporter (via Deadline). We’ve got a new debut date, which we’re hoping will stay. “Sing 2” is planned to launch on December 22, 2021, according to Deadline. With the ambiguous statement, “In cinemas this Christmas,” the first trailer verifies this approximate date. In July, “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” a prologue to the “Despicable Me” trilogy and sequel to “Minions,” will take its place.
During the coronavirus outbreak, “Sing 2” wasn’t the only movie that struggled to keep up. Several prospective animated films, including “Tom & Jerry The Movie” and “SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run,” had challenges throughout the extraordinary year. While many production companies were forced to close, animators were able to continue working remotely, which is already usual due to the fact that many animation crews are located all over the world. According to Deadline, Illumination was up to the challenge, pressing through with “Sing 2” and “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” among other projects, because it always operates remotely. According to a source, the preceding two months were marked by increased production, innovation, and originality.
Sing 2’s cast: who’s who?
Matthew McConaughey reprises his role as Buster Moon, Reese Witherspoon reprises her role as Rosita, Scarlett Johansson reprises her role as Ash, Taron Egerton reprises his role as Johnny, Nick Kroll reprises his role as Gunter, and Tori Kelly reprises her role as Meena in the upcoming sequel to “Sing” (via Collider).
The already star-studded play will welcome fresh cast members in December 2020. Bono, the world-famous musician, will portray Clay Calloway, a former rockstar and lion. The film will star Pharrell Williams as Alfonso, an elephant who operates an ice cream truck. An egotistical yak will be played by Eric Andre. Bobby Cannavale plays Jimmy Crystal, a wolf-like character who is also a powerful Hollywood entrepreneur. Jimmy’s adolescent daughter Porsche will be played by Halsey. The participants will be taught choreography by a feline dancer played by Letitia Wright. Jimmy’s canine assistant will be played by Chelsea Peretti (via THR).
What is Sing 2’s story about?
Following the events of the previous film, “Sing 2” picks up. We’ll follow Buster and his remarkable troupe of artists as they go on a larger stage at Redshore City’s legendary Crystal Tower Theater, according to the film synopsis on Universal’s website. However, in order to perform on their dream stage, the gang must first obtain Jimmy Crystal’s permission. Gunter claims that they’ll be able to persuade the reclusive rocker Clay Calloway to feature in their program — despite the fact that they don’t know him and he’s been out of the spotlight for years — in a last-ditch attempt to wow Crystal.
The group sets out to track down Calloway, persuade Crystal that everything is on track, and prepare for the show of a lifetime. Isn’t that entertaining? It certainly appears to be entertaining, and if you don’t believe us, watch the official trailer, which was released on June 24.
“Sing 2” will feature plenty of explosive performances, from classic rock to contemporary pop tunes, similar to its predecessor. We can’t wait to see where Buster and his creative group wind up.
