Now Illumination has released the full official trailer for the movie, which follows animals getting the chance to show off their singing talents in a competition similar to the ones humans are very familiar with.
You can read more about the movie and watch the new trailer below.
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal optimistâ€”okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrelâ€”who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing the crumbling of his lifeâ€™s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the worldâ€™s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse (Seth MacFarlane) who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant (Tori Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his familyâ€™s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each animal arrives under Busterâ€™s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
Featuring more than 85 hit songs, Sing is written and directed by Garth Jennings (Son of Rambow, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. Released by Universal Pictures, Sing arrives in theaters for the holiday season on December 21, 2016.
Illumination also recently announced a Despicable Me 3 with South Park co-creator Trey Parker voicing the villain, and a new animated take on How the Grinch Stole Christmas with Benedict Cumberbatch voicing the Grinch.
