The highly successful movie (Sing) that gave rise to unforgettable competing characters in a talent show brings the vibrant characters to life on the big screen with new members who eventually put their acts together to help each other reach for their dreams.
Sing 2 comes at an opportune time to return to the cinema experience to hum, sing and stomp to the movie’s beat as the nation (in recent weeks and days) sees increased numbers of those who had been vaccinated so far.
Sing 2 follows the talented group on aiming for bigger dreams heading to Redshore City where all promising and successful artists start and conquer, Buster Moon and his crew dodge all odds trying to make a mark in the entertainment capital of the world. Forever the showman with the hustle to match, Buster, voiced by Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey, has now set his sights on making it big with a new show. “I am inspired by Buster and his eternal, and often delusional, optimism,” McConaughey says. “He’s a dreamer who will do the work to make his dreams come true, even if they don’t. In preparing to be Buster, I got inspiration from my own children, and the boundless energy of their youth and imagination.
Rocker porcupine Ash is voiced by Scarlett Johansson, who was thrilled to return to the franchise after seeing audiences connect so well with the first film. “I think audiences loved Sing because the characters and story have an explosive amount of heart,” Johansson says. “Ash is an artist and so she understands firsthand that an artist needs to heal thru their gift,” Johansson says. “That’s what she inspires Clay (voiced by Bono) to do; to find his voice again and use his music to move beyond his trauma to a place of acceptance and healing.”
A Universal Pictures International release, Sing 2 opens on February 23 in cinemas nationwide.
