Just before Christmas, Reese and her co-stars revealed the first poster for Sing 2 on their social media accounts! We also have a synopsis for the new film. The film will hit cinemas on December 22nd 2021.
Next holiday season, the new chapter in Illumination’s smash animated franchise returns with big dreams and spectacular hit songs as can-do koala Buster Moon and his all-star cast of animal performers 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 legendary music icon Bono, making his animated film debut—to join them.
Buster (Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey) and his cast have 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 extraordinaire Gunter (Nick Kroll)—have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by a ruthless mogul wolf named 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 and hasn’t been seen since.
As Gunter helps Buster dream up an out-of-this-world theatrical masterpiece, and the pressure (and sinister threats) from Mr. Crystal mount, Buster embarks on a quest to find Clay and persuade him to return to the stage. What begins as Buster’s dream of big-time success becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart.
Sing 2 is written and directed by acclaimed returning filmmaker Garth Jennings and features, in addition to Bono’s and Cannavale’s roles, new characters played by music superstars Pharrell Williams and Halsey, Black Panther’s Letitia Wright, and comedians Eric Andre and Chelsea Peretti.
The film is produced by visionary Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Janet Healy. Sing 2 combines dozens of classic rock and pop hit songs, electrifying performances, breathtaking artistry, and Illumination’s signature humor and heart into the definitive feel-good cinematic event of next year.

Comments Off on “Sing 2” pushed to December 2021
It was announced back in June that Sing 2 has been pushed back a whole year – to December 22nd 2021 – due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s the latest revamp in Universal’s schedule in the wake of mass shuttering of multiplexes due to the coronavirus pandemic. Though movie theaters in some states have started to reopen, the majority of cinema chains are still closed.
Judd Apatow’s “The King of Staten Island,” a comedy starring Pete Davidson, will also debut on digital rental services on June 12 in lieu of a traditional theatrical rollout. In April, the studio dropped “Trolls World Tour” on video-on-demand and in drive-ins. Meanwhile, “Fast and Furious” installment “F9,” the next “Minions” sequel, and “Sing 2” were all pushed into 2021. (Variety)
A slightly smaller update today than previously – the 2016 TV Appearances section of the Gallery has been updated. We already had photos from most of the appearances but there are a few additional photos & screencaptures, including from Reese’s interviews on Ellen & Jimmy Fallon. Reese did a bit of promotion for Draper James and Sing in 2016, but was relatively low profile compared to the previous few years!
Most available videos have already been posted – browse through our 2016 news archives to watch them, and find the clip from The Project below.
Reese appeared on the Today with Hoda & Jenna segment of The Today Show yesterday, as part of her on-going promotion for Big Little Lies. She talked about the show and cast, but also chatted about why she likes being the age she is, her kids and her relationships with them, her priorities, Little Fires Everywhere, The Morning Show, Legally Blonde 3, and Sing 2 (she just did some recording for it last week she said). This is my favourite of her recent interviews – it’s great hearing her talk about all her upcoming shows, and how she’s matured as a person. Find screencaptures in the Gallery and watch the interview below:
We’re almost done completing the Films section of our Gallery! The Sing category has been updated with a few stills, posters, and screencaptures from various featurettes and interviews. Reese voiced the adorable and perky pig Rosita – and of course sang for the role. This was a fun movie with some enjoyable music moments – and we’re looking forward to the sequel!
There’s been lots of news & updates posted this weekend so be sure to keep on scrolling down to see all the latest…

Comments Off on Reese starts recording for “Sing 2”
Almost 2 years ago it was announced that Sing would have a sequel, and this week director Garth Jennings has posted photos of the cast recording for their roles! Sing 2 will be released on December 25th 2010. Here’s Reese in the recording booth:
One year ago Reese was busy promoting her then-new movie Sing, the animated musical comedy with an all-star cast. She voiced the lovely Rosita the pig, a mother to 25 piglets who dreams of realising her singing goal. The movie was fun with some great musical moments – what did you all think of it? Today, I have added a few HD screencaptures from the movie to our Gallery for you:
Reese took time out of her holiday in the Caribbean to chat to fans on Facebook live yesterday. She and co-star Laura Dern also did an interview on Instagram. They revealed that they are considering a second season of Big Little Lies…
