Synopsis: Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (Academy AwardÂ® winner Matthew McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal optimistâ€”okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrelâ€”who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now facing the crumbling of his lifeâ€™s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the worldâ€™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 (Academy AwardÂ® winner Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his familyâ€™s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo. Each animal arrives under Busterâ€™s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life.
