Sing 2 (2021)
Sing 2 made its world premiere at the AFI Fest on November 14, 2021, and was theatrically released in the United States on December 22, 2021, by Universal Pictures. The film has met with positive reviews and grossed over $408 million worldwide against a production budget of $85 million, becoming the highest-grossing animated film of 2021 and the tenth-highest-grossing film of 2021.
Buster and his new cast now have their sights set on debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City. But with no connections, he and his singers must sneak into the Crystal Entertainment offices, run by the ruthless wolf mogul Jimmy Crystal, where the gang pitches the ridiculous idea of casting the lion rock legend Clay Calloway in their show. Buster must embark on a quest to find the now-isolated Clay and persuade him to return to the stage.
Sing 2 is a 2021 American computer-animated jukebox musical comedy film produced by Illumination and distributed by Universal Pictures. The sequel to the 2016 film Sing, the film was written and directed by Garth Jennings and stars Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Nick Kroll, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Nick Offerman and Jennings himself, reprising their roles from the first film. The sequel also features new characters voiced by Bobby Cannavale, Halsey, Pharrell Williams, Letitia Wright, Eric André, Chelsea Peretti, and Bono.
VIOLENCE: A villain threatens Buster on a handful of occasions, snarling at him and eventually throws him from precipitous heights a couple of different times. Johnny breaks his skateboard in half in frustration. A car crashes into a couple of places. A couple of characters are electrocuted by a fence and pass out. A character is whacked by wooden sticks on a few occasions. One is barraged by paintball gun bullets in one scene. However, other than Mrs. Crawley comedically losing her glass eye from time to time, no one is too badly hurt.
Theater owner Buster Moon sets his sights on producing a brand-new musical with his troupe in the glamorous Redshore City. To gain the support of a ruthless music mogul, he pitches that he'll feature Clay Calloway, a legendary but elusive rock singer as part of the show. Now, all the group needs to do is find the recluse and persuade him to perform with them.

In Sing 2, the performing animals of the $634.1M global grossing hit, Buster, Meena, Rosita, Gunter, Johnny and Ash prepare for a bigger stage as they leave Moon Theater for the big city. Writer/director Garth Jennings returns along with voiceover stars Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Nick Kroll and Tori Kelly.
Of course, I must talk about the music sprinkled in throughout. The movie is one big sing-along that highlights some of the best songs from past and present. I will admit that the score by Joby Talbot infused some real emotion when needed.
In SING 2, talent scout dog Suki Lake (Chelsea Peretti) tells theater director koala Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) that his production isn't exciting enough to merit a spot at the internationally renowned Crystal Theater in Vegas-like "entertainment capital" Redshore City. Buster disregards her criticism and takes his ensemble -- piano-playing balladeer gorilla Johnny (Taron Egerton), teen pop-singing elephant Meena (Tori Kelly), and pig pals Gunter (Nick Kroll) and Rosita (Reese Witherspoon) -- on a road trip to audition for the intimidating Mr. Crystal (Bobby Cannavale), a prominent producer wolf. A misunderstanding makes Crystal believe that Buster has secured the involvement of Clay Calloway (Bono), one of the world's biggest pop stars, to come out of retirement for the musical extravaganza, so he agrees to hire Buster and his crew. Buster enlists porcupine rocker Ash (Scarlett Johansson) to help him track down Clay and convince him to be part of the new show. Meanwhile, the original cast deals with learning new skills for Buster's ambitious dream project.
