In the first film, Buster Moon, a Koala who ran a struggling theatre, was the main character. He made the decision to host the greatest singing competition in the world in order to protect his theatre. Numerous outstanding singing groups performed at the occasion, which helped to keep Buster’s theatre operating. With Sing 2, Buster takes his theatre troupe to Redshore City, the centre of the global entertainment industry, in the hopes of impressing a music tycoon and breaking through. He made an effort to convince Clay Calloway, the most reclusive rock star in the world, to join them in order to increase his chances. Was he successful? Although there won’t be any spoilers here, you won’t be surprised by the result.
The movie is packed with striking imagery and stirring music
The animated musical by Garth Jennings hits all the right notes with excellent music, animation, and voice acting but falls short due to a weak plot. A character in Garth Jennings’ animated musical Sing 2 days early on that a talent scout responded to the protagonists’ performance with “four grins, three laughs, and a chuckle.” This might very well sum up how I felt about the film itself. The follow-up to the same director’s 2016 picture Sing, Sing 2, has its enjoyable moments and irritating ones. Thankfully, the movie is jam-packed with striking imagery and stirring music. Nevertheless, it is never justified. Did Sing even require a follow-up? If so, it merited better treatment than this. Sing 2 begins not too far from where Sing 1 did. Matthew McConaughey’s character, Buster Moon, produces musicals in his small-town theatre in an effort to draw the attention of a major talent scout from Redshore City, the hub of the global entertainment industry. However, after
being rejected, Buster persuades his group to travel to Redshore City and perform in front of Jimmy Crystal, the city’s biggest entertainment executive (Bobby Cannavale). The remainder of the movie centres on the group’s efforts to launch a massive space opera musical and their efforts to get the help of reclusive rock singer Clay Calloway (Bono in an extended cameo).
Sing 3: Will There Be One?
Sing 3 has no definite plans as of the time of writing. Garth Jennings, the director of the Sing films that we have seen so far, and Illumination Entertainment, the company that produces the Sing movies, will probably make the final call. Although a third film hasn’t been officially announced, Matthew McConaughey, who played Buster Moon, has spoken about the prospect of a sequel. There is certainly interest in Sing 3 from individuals who have liked the movies, so it’s possible that a sequel may take place, although we don’t know if Garth has listened to Matthew or the fans who believe Buster should get his chance on stage.
