SING – New year release for Kids
Universal has managed to captivate audience all over the world with their enjoyable hits as ‘Depicable Me’, ‘Despicable Me 2’, ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ and of course, ‘Minions’ that stands tall as the 2nd highest grossing animated movie in history! ‘Sing’ set in a world like ours but inhabited entirely by animals is a musical salute to this season with the characters relating heart and humor!
The film features the voice talents of Academy Award winners, Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon alongside Seth Mcfarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John Reilly, Taron Egerton and Grammy Award nominated Tori Kelly.
The film 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-some might even say delusion -optimist 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: Mike (Seth Mcfarlane) a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons, Meena (Tori Kelly) a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright, Rosita (Reese Witherspoon) an overtaxed pig, Johnny (Taron Egerton) a young gangster gorilla looking to break free from his family’s felonies, Ash (Scarlett Johansson) a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each 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!
This animated feature film, features more than 65 hit songs!
