The 3rd trailer for the upcoming animated musical film Sing has been released, featuring an all-star cast voicing animals in a singing contest.
Well this looks like a bit of fun.
It looks like what you’d get if you crossed Zootopia with Pitch Perfect, or any one of the many reality TV singing shows.
Sing follows a group of animals trying to make it as singers, and the trials and tribulations that go with it.
People love musicals, and people love cute animals in feature animated films, so it makes sense that we’re getting this, and it has all the ingredients to make a killing at the box office.
Sing comes from Illumination Entertainment, the production company behind the Despicable Me films and the recent The Secret Life of Pets (see my review here), which are all great animated films.
The film features the voice-talents of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton and Tori Kelly, and is directed by Garth Jennings, whose past credits include Son of Rambow (2008) and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (2005).
The animated musical Sing is due out in Australian cinemas on 26 December 2016, check out the trailer below.
The official synopsis of the film is as follows:
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 optimist—okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrel—who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing 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.
