Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have revealed the full trailer for “Sing,” the animated film musical comedy currently targeting a December 21st 2016 release. Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton and Tori Kelly lend their voices to the comedy which is set in a world of animals.
McConaughey plays Buster Moon, an optimistic koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times and tries to revive his fortunes through the holding of the world’s greatest singing competition.
The five lead contestants are a crooning mouse (MacFarlane), a timid teenage elephant (Kelly), an overtaxed sow (Witherspoon), a young gangster gorilla (Egerton), and a punk-rock porcupine (Johansson). Garth Jennings (“Son of Rambow”) helms the project which features more than 85 hit songs.
