TARON EGERTON is Johnny, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies, in the event film “Sing,” from Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures.

If you’ve been one to enjoy watching the voice, dance, and talent competitions that have aired on TV for a number of years, you’ll love this animation film that is gone completely animal! And you’ll not only enjoy the story, but the film features 65 hit songs and some popular stars such as Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson and Tori Kelly.

Koala Buster Moon and elderly lizard Miss Crawly, greet the contestants.

Boisterous German pig Gunter and mother Rosita.


Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal—some might even say delusional—optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.

Five lead contestants emerge: Mike, a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena, a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita, a mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash, a punk-rock porcupine trying to get rid of her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.

Each contestant believes that this is their shot to change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.
