Sing 2 is a 2021’s American computer-animated jukebox musical comedy film that became the highest-grossing animated film of 2021 by grossing over $409 million worldwide against a production budget of $85 million.
Sing 2 is the sequel to 2016’s Sing, which received positive reviews from the audience and grossed $634 million worldwide. Like the first installment, the second film was also written and directed by Garth Jennings.
The film is set after the first film’s events where Buster Moon is thriving with his new theatre. However, he fails to impress talent scout Suki, who tells him he will not make it in Redshore City. Encouraged by Nana Noodleman, Buster reunites the singers who competed in the first film, except for Mike, and takes them to the city.
The film’s official synopsis reads, “Can-do koala Buster Moon and his all-star cast of animal performers prepare to launch a dazzling stage extravaganza in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch — he has to find and persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star to join them. What begins as Buster’s dream of big-time success soon becomes an emotional reminder of the power of music to heal even the most broken heart”.
