Buster Moon and his friends must persuade reclusive rock star Clay Calloway to join them for the opening of a new show.
It is the sequel to Sing. Like the previous film, Sing 2 features songs from many artists, most of which are performed diegetically (music in a drama that is part of the setting - the characters can hear it).
The film received mixed-to-positive reviews from critics.

There's another talking pig in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse with the awesome Spider-Pig. For more great animated 'part 2's' - you can't go wrong with Toy Story 2, Shrek 2 and Despicable Me 2 (check out the originals as well!)
Scarlett Johannson and Letitia Wright both appear in Sing 2 but in very different roles in Avengers: Endgame as the superhero counterparts. Speaking of comic book adaptations, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World feels like a live action cartoon version of a battle of the bands.
There's more talking animated animals in Disney's Zootropolis and of course the original, Sing.
