The world's greatest singing competition goes down in 'Sing'.

Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theatre that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist, and a bit of a scoundrel, he loves his theatre above all and will do anything to preserve it. Facing the crumbling of his life's ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.

Sing is an American 3D computer-animated musical comedy produced by Illumination Entertainment. It was directed and written by Garth Jennings and co-directed by Christophe Lourdelet. The film stars the voices of Academy Award winners Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, Academy Award nominee John C. Reilly, Tori Kelly, Taron Egerton and Nick Kroll.
