Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment’s recently dropped a heartwarming teaser trailer for the upcoming animated musical-comedy that stars a line-up of Hollywood A-listers.
Much like “Zootopia”, “Sing” is also set in a modern city that is entirely inhabited by animals and it centres around “the world’s greatest singing competition” that is produced by optimistic theatre owner, Buster Moon the Koala (played by Matthew McConaughey), who is determined to save his theatre at any cost.
The movie also focuses on the competition’s 5 lead contestants: Mike the jazzy mouse (played by Seth MacFarlane), Meena the shy teenage elephant (played by Torri Kelly), Rosita the over-worked mother pig (played by Reese Witherspoon), Johnny the gangster gorilla (played by Taron Egerton), and Ash the punky crested porcupine (played by Scarlett Johansson).
Each animal arrives under Buster’s roof believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
The 3-minute trailer offers a glimpse of all the animal stars and it features some really awesome classic and current hits such as Zombies “The Way I Feel Inside”, Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose”, Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”, and Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me”.
According to USA Today, “Sing” will present more than 85 songs, from the 1940s to the present. “When you start to see these animals sing, it’s absolutely magical and hysterical,” said producer Chris Meledandri.
Let’s sing along with the animal stars while watching the trailer below:
Slated for release on 21st December 2016, “Sing” will also feature the voices of John C. Reilly, Nick Kroll, and Leslie Jones.
