Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), Ash (Scarlett Johansson), Johnny (Taron Egerton), Meena (Tori Kelly) and Gunter (Nick Kroll) return with all-new characters, spectacular hit songs and electrifying performances in SING 2, a comedy about the emotional healing power of music.

 

The film is written and directed by Garth Jennings (Sing, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy), and stars Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Bobby Cannavale, Tori Kelly, Nick Kroll, Pharrell Williams, Halsey, Letitia Wright, Jennifer Saunders, Nick Offerman and Bono. The original score was created by Joby Talbot.
