The sequel to 2016’s animated musical Sing is finally here and it’s safe to say it hits a high note.
The sequel directed by Garth Jennings showcases more than 40 pop tunes (from Billie Eilish to BTS) that will surely have audiences singing in the theaters.
HipHollywood caught up with cast at the famed Greek Theater to chat about the film, their ideal singing partners and their favorite place to sing out loud.
Matthew McConaughey, who plays ambitious koala Buster Moon, said he’d love to do a duet with Bono after revealing he’s already slated to do some singing with Jimmy Fallon.
Reese who plays Rosita said she’d love to sing with Adele before also adding in pal Beyonce.
Scarlett Johansson who voices the character Ash, gushed about doing a duet for the film with Bono who plays a rockstar lion, while Tori Kelly who plays Meena the sensitive elephant, shared her favorite place to sing when she’s home.
In the first film, the bow-tied koala impresario Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) assembled a singing contest to save his struggling theater. In “Sing 2,” Moon and his stable of performers go for the big time. After a snooty talent scout dismisses their troupe as not good enough to rise above regional theater, Moon buys bus tickets and they head to Redshore City, a gleaming desert metropolis stand-in for Las Vegas.
Sing 2 is in theaters now.
