Five years after Sing peaked at over $600M at the box office, Illumination has dropped the trailer for its sequel. Sing 2 promises an even bigger showcase for the singing animals with star-studded voices. Only this time, the crew isn’t putting together a show to save their struggling venue, they’re taking the show on the road and hitting the big city.
Matthew McConaughey returns as Buster Moon, with Reese Witherspoon as Rosita, Scarlett Johansson as Ash, Nick Kroll as Gunter the pig, Taron Egerton as Johnny the gorilla, and Tori Kelly as Meena. Bobby Cannavale voices gangster Jimmy Crystal, who helps them put on the show but at a risky price. Grammy winner Halsey plays his spoiled daughter, and there are other new characters voiced by Pharrell Williams, Letitia Wright, Eric André, and Chelsea Peretti.
The trailer also teases a cover of U2 song “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” performed by Johansson and Bono, who voices a reclusive rocker who is reluctant to be part of the show.
Directed once again by Garth Jennings, Sing 2 opens in theaters on December 22nd.
