Illumination is certainly the biggest upcoming animation studios. After the success of Despicable Meand their spin-off yellow Tic Tac gobbledygook speaking Minions, they are certainly strong contenders in the animation pool against the likes of Dreamworks…and maybe Pixar. But definitely Dreamworks.
Anyway, Illumination are sending us two brand new movies coming our way including hotly anticipated film The Secret Life of Pets and now this star-filled escapade, Sing.
Starring Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton and Tori Kelly the film revolves around a world inhabited by animals only. Buster Moon is a dapper Koala whose theatre has fallen on hard times. However, to get back on his trotters, he creates the greatest singing competition ever!
With Taron Egerton playing a gangster gorilla, yes you read that correctly, and director and writer Garth Jennings helming this whole production, Sing could actually have a chance in being a different, hilarious, and heart-warming adventure!
Sing is out January 2017!
