In 2016, Illumination Entertainment released Sing, an animated musical set in a world of talking, singing, and dancing animals. The story followed a theater impresario’s idea to save his theater by holding a singing competition. This last-ditch effort turns into the opportunity of a lifetime for an assorted cast of participants who recognize the chance to fulfill their musical dreams and change their lives forever. The film was released to critical acclaim and was a massive success at the box office. Now, with the return of its all-star cast (which includes Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johnasson, Reese Witherspoon, and Taron Egerton) and some new additions, the sequel is set to premiere on December 22.
