Illumination Drops Final ‘Sing 2’ Trailer

Buster Moon and his all-star cast of performers are ready to unleash their biggest extravaganza yet… but there’s one small hitch; sequel to 2016 hit ‘Sing’ comes to theaters December 22.

The ever-optimistic Buster Moon and his all-star cast of performers are all prepared to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet… all in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. With one small problem.

Illumination, the studio behind fan-favorite The Secret Life of Pets and Despicable Me franchises, has just dropped the final trailer for Sing 2, the sequel to their 2016 hit animated musical, Sing.

Buster (Matthew McConaughey) has turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but he has his eyes on a bigger prize: debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by global music icon Bono, in his animated film debut—to join them.

It’s time to stand up and sing… 2… with the film’s final trailer:

With no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), rocker Ash (Scarlett Johansson), earnest Johnny (Taron Egerton), shy Meena (Tori Kelly) and, of course, provocateur Gunter (Nick Kroll)—have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by ruthless mogul Jimmy Crystal (Bobby Cannavale).

In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystal’s attention, Gunter spontaneously 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 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.

The film stars McConaughey as Buster Moon; Taron Egerton as Johnny; Tori Kelly as Meena; Reese Witherspoon as Rosita; Nick Kroll as Gunter; Scarlett Johansson as Ash; Bobby Cannavale as Jimmy Crystal; Halsey as Porsha Crystal; Bono as Clay Colloway; and Garth Jennings as Miss Crawly.

Sing 2 is written and directed by returning Sing filmmaker Garth Jennings and features additional new characters played by Pharrell Williams as Alfonso, Black Panther’s Letitia Wright as Nooshy, Eric André as Darius, and Chelsea Peretti as Suki. It's produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy.

The film features dozens of hit songs from pop to rock, K-pop to Latin, and from artists including Billie Eilish, Drake, U2, The Weeknd, Prince, Taylor Swift, BTS, Cardi B, Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello.
