The way to watch Sing 2 is to go to a movie theater. Sing 2 will open in theaters in the U.S on December 22, and in the U.K. on January 28. After the movie’s theatrical run, you will be able to rent Sing 2 on digital platforms.
Sing 2 is returning to dazzle the big screen once again with its bubbly energy, extensive star-studded cast, and joyous hit songs, just like its predecessor, Sing.
The original animated musical comedy was applauded and praised at the box office upon its release and featured an extravagant star-studded cast of animal performers. As the animals boogied the night away, it became a huge hit with viewers and we can only assume the same for Sing 2 as the all-star cast is set to return to reprise their roles for the sequel.
Some of the big names set to return for the sequel are Scarlett Johansson, Matthew McConaughey, Taron Egerton, and Reese Witherspoon.
As well as some new and exciting additions to the cast. We’re definitely in for a fun and vibrant ride with this sequel!
‘Sing 2’ release date
Sing 2 is set to be released on Dec. 22, 2021, in theatres in the US. For the UK, it’s set to release in cinemas on Jan. 28, 2022.
WILL SING 2 BE ON HBO MAX?
No. Sing 2 is a Universal Pictures movie, not a Warner Bros. movie, and therefore will not be streaming on HBO Max when it opens in theaters.
While HBO Max—which is owned by Warner Media—has been the streaming home for blockbuster Warner Bros. movies like Dune, it will not be the streaming home for Universal movies like Sing 2. While the movie may be on HBO Max someday, it won’t be any time soon.
What Is “Sing 2” About?
The hustling Buster Moon, a dreamer of a koala with grand plans for his local theater, returns in this anticipated sequel film, only this time the stakes are higher, the competition fiercer, and the soundtrack is even more robust. Moon’s crew have their eyes on the prize this time, which consists of a gig performing a brand new show for literal entertainment wolf Jimmy Crystal at his glamorous Crystal Tower Theater in Redshore City.
The “Sing” gang returns, performing an elaborate rendition of “Alice in Wonderland” laced with instantly recognizable hit songs. But a couple of larger-than-life obstacles stand in the way of their journey to fame: a disinterested talent scout who doesn’t think they have what it takes to make it in the big leagues, an intimidating boss (Crystal) to convince otherwise, and then the falsehood that Buster Moon has connections to reclusive rockstar Clay Calloway — who hasn’t performed in years since the death of his wife, despite the fact that Moon promises Crystal he’ll be performing with them.
All kinds of animated antics set to a solid soundtrack — peppered with both classic hits as well as more recent smash singles — promise a very entertaining sequel film indeed.
Will I be able to stream Sing 2?
After the movie’s theatrical run, fans will be able to stream Sing 2 on digital platforms such as iTunes, YouTube, Google Play from the comfort of their own homes.
A digital release date is yet to be confirmed and viewers will have to stay tuned for more information on this front.
Universal movies have previously been released on digital platforms around 17 days after their theatrical run, but in some cases – as with the recent Universal movie Dear Evan Hansen and No Time To Die – the digital release date has been about one month after landing in cinemas.
What is the plot of ‘Sing 2’?
A new chapter begins for the New Moon Theater gang and they have a big dream to achieve. They have their sights set to debut a new show at the Crystal Tower Theatre in Redshore City, but with Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) having no connections to the glamorous city, he and his gang decide to sneak into the distinguished Crystal Entertainment offices.
They have high hopes to impress the ruthless wolf owner, Jimmy Crystal (Bobby Cannavale) with an outrageous last-minute pitch, promising that their new show will feature the reclusive lion rock star Clay Calloway (Bono).
However, a problem soon arises as Buster has never met the rock legend Clay, who went into isolation after the death of his wife more than a decade ago and hasn’t come out since. But it’s not long before Buster and the crew comes up with ideas on how to persuade him to come back to the stage.
