Following yesterday’s special art, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment revealed Sing character posters.
Sing features voices of Matthew McConaughey (Buster Moon), Reese Witherspoon (Rosita), Seth MacFarlane (Mike), Scarlett Johansson (Ash), Taron Egerton (Johnny), Tori Kelly (Meena), Nick Kroll (Gunter).
Featuring more than 85 hit songs, the film is written and directed by Garth Jennings, produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy.
“Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (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 faced with 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.
Five lead contestants emerge: A mouse (Seth MacFarlane) who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant (Tori Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each animal arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.”
The voice cast also includes Jennifer Saunders, John C. Reilly, Peter Serafinowicz, Leslie Jones, Jay Pharoah, Nick Offerman, & Beck Bennett.
Sing arrives this holiday season on December 21, 2016.
