Sing 2 Available NOW on Digital and on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD March 29
The new chapter in Illumination’s smash animated franchise, Sing, has is NOW available on digital. Filled with big dreams and spectacular hit songs, Sing 2 follows that lovable and ever-optimistic koala, Buster Moon, and his all-star cast of performers as they prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by global music icon Bono, in his animated film debut—to join them.
Buster (Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey) has turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City.
But with no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother pig Rosita (Oscar® winner Reese Witherspoon), rocker porcupine Ash (Scarlett Johansson), earnest gorilla Johnny (Taron Egerton), shy elephant Meena (Tori Kelly) and, of course, porcine provocateur Gunter (Nick Kroll)—have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by ruthless mogul wolf Jimmy Crystal (Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale).
In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystal’s attention, Gunter spontaneously pitches an outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, promising that their new show will star lion rock legend Clay Calloway (Bono). Problem is, Buster has never met Clay, an artist who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife. Even worse, Buster has failed to realize that Mr. Crystal is an egocentric gangster who would rather drop somebody off the roof of a building than be lied to.
As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world theatrical masterpiece, and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr. Crystal mount, Rosita’s leading role in the show gets ripped away and handed to Mr. Crystal’s spoiled daughter, Porsha, played by Grammy-nominated artist Halsey. Desperate to save the show, and his life, Buster embarks on a quest to find Clay and persuade him to return to the stage.
What begins as a dream of big-time success becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart.
Sing 2 Movie Review
Our family had been waiting on this film and it did not disappoint! From the moment the movie began to the very end, we were completely engaged and entertained by the whimsical characters of Sing 2. We like to say that we were over the Buster Moon excited with this movie. Even if you have not seen the first one, you’ll be delighted with Sing 2. Full of great life lessons that we all can learn from such as grief and overcoming fears, this animated film speaks to all of us through music.
The animation is great and the comedy is clever, but I really have to say the music is what really drives this film as one would expect. Many classics from my younger years were featured in this film and that’s probably why I feel so connected to it. From the first song to the last, I was singing along and thinking about how I wanted the kids to know this set of songs just as much as the set from the first movie. Each song is perfectly balanced with the situations in the movie.
One of the things I felt this film brings to families is the power of perseverance. Life has been such a challenge these last few years. Just as Buster Moon sets out to take his dreams to the world, so must we. Many people this holiday season are grieving and feeling lost or without hope. While much has been taken from us, there is so much more to life. Believing in one another and taking chances is important and this is exactly what this movie reveals.
Sing 2 is a feel-good movie that you’ll definitely want to add to your family movie night list. It’s one that you’ll actually want to watch over and over, and as of March 1, you can own it on digital (YouTube, Vudu, Prime Video, Apple TV, Xfinity). Starting March 29, you can pick up 4K UHD, Blu-ray, and DVD. Click here for more information.
