SING 2 – Coming 24 December 2021

This holiday season, the new chapter in Illumination’s animated franchise arrives with big dreams and hit songs as the ever-optimistic Buster Moon and his cast of performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet …all in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by Academy Award® nominee and global music icon BONO, in his animated film debut—to join them.

Buster (Oscar® winner MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY) has turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City.

But with no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother Rosita (Oscar® winner REESE WITHERSPOON), rocker Ash (Tony winner SCARLETT JOHANSSON), earnest Johnny (Grammy nominee TARON EGERTON), shy Meena (Grammy winner TORI KELLY) and, of course, provocateur Gunter (Emmy nominee NICK KROLL)—have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by ruthless mogul Jimmy Crystal (Emmy winner BOBBY CANNAVALE). 

In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystal’s attention, Gunter pitches an outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, promising that their new show will star rock legend Clay Calloway (BONO). Problem is, Buster has never met Clay, an artist who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife. Even worse, Buster has failed to realize that Mr. Crystal is an egocentric gangster who would rather drop somebody off the roof of a building than be lied to.

As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world theatrical masterpiece, and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr. Crystal mount, Rosita’s leading role in the show gets ripped away and handed to Mr. Crystal’s spoiled daughter, Porsha, played by Grammy-nominated artist HALSEY. Desperate to save the show, and his life, Buster embarks on a quest to find Clay and persuade him to return to the stage.

What begins as a dream of big-time success becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart.

Sing 2 is written and directed by acclaimed returning filmmaker GARTH JENNINGS and features BAFTA Television Award winner JENNIFER SAUNDERS as Nana, Emmy nominee NICK OFFERMAN as Norman, Grammy winner and Oscar® nominee PHARRELL WILLIAMS as Alfonso, Emmy nominee LETITIA WRIGHT as Nooshy, ERIC ANDRÉ as Darius, CHELSEA PERETTI as Suki Lane, ADAM BUXTON as Klaus Kickenklober, PETER SERAFINOWICZ as Big Daddy, JULIA DAVIS as LINDA LE BON and Grammy nominee GARTH JENNINGS as Miss Crawly.
