The sequel to Illumination’s 2016 animated smash hit Sing, aptly named Sing 2, will see Buster the koala and his all-star animal pals return to cinemas this December.

Promising bigger dreams, bigger stakes, and the biggest performances yet, Sing 2 follows Buster’s plan to stage an ambitious musical extravaganza at the world’s entertainment capital, the glamorous Crystal Tower Theatre. But first he must persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star to join them, and negotiate with the theatre’s ruthless boss, a wolf named Jimmy Crystal.

Joining returning voice-cast members Matthew McConaughey, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Nick Offerman and Reese Witherspoon are Emmy-winner Bobby Cannavale and Black Panther‘s Letitia Wright, along with music superstars Pharrell Williams and U2’s Bono – the latter making his animated movie debut.

Sing 2 will be ready to let loose in Australian cinemas from Boxing Day (December 26). Check out the trailer:
