My kids and I are very excited for SING! The kids have been talking about this one since we saw a preview early this year. We have been invited to pre-screen the movie this Wednesday so be sure to follow along on our social channels to hear what we thought about the film.
SING is packed with a lot of star talent including one of my husband’s favorite actors, Mathew McConaughey as Buster Moon the theater owner.
Here is a little more about the film.
Illumination has captivated audiences all over the world with the beloved
hits Despicable Me, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, now
the second-highest-grossing animated movie in history. Following the
release of this summer’s comedy blockbuster The Secret Life of Pets,
Illumination presents Sing this holiday season.
The event film stars Academy Award(r) winners Matthew McConaughey and Reese
Witherspoon, alongside Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly,
Taron Egerton and Grammy Award-nominated Tori Kelly.
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars
Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand
theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal-some might even
say delusional-optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything
to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has
one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by
producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: Mike (MacFarlane), a mouse who croons as
smoothly as he cons; Meena (Kelly), a timid teenage elephant with an
enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Witherspoon), an overtaxed mother run
ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Egerton), a young gangster
gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash (Johansson),
a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to
change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his
contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that
maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.
Featuring more than 65 hit songs, Sing is produced by Meledandri and his
longtime collaborator Janet Healy. Together, they have produced all of
Illumination’s films since the studio’s inception. Released by Universal
