Just in time for the holidays, “Sing 2” hits theatres five years after its predecessor. Due to the COVID epidemic, the sequel to “Sing,” which was originally scheduled for a December 25, 2020 release, has been pushed back to December 25, 2020.
This is so that it may occupy the slot left by the postponement of the film adaptation of “Wicked.”
The Release Date
The release date of “Sing 2” has been pushed back from Christmas Day, 2020, to July 2, 2021, before concerns about the COVID virus were ever raised. Universal pushed out the release date of “Sing 2” to April 2020 so as to make room for Illumination’s other major project, “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” but that film was later pushed back as well due to production issues.
In any case, “Sing 2” is now available, and many households will likely be asking how to view the sequel with their children. What are the availability options, if any? Can I watch it online? Here are the solutions to your problems.
Can I Watch “Sing 2” Online?
On the day of its theatrical release, January 7, 2022, Vudu, Xfinity, YouTube TV, Apple TV, and Prime Video did not provide “Sing 2” for streaming, but on January 7 of that year, it became available for rental OnDemand.
Starting in 2022, all Universal Pictures titles will be available on Peacock 45 days after they enter theatres, so even after the film’s theatrical run ends at the end of 2021, it may still be available to watch. However, this has been been the case for Universal’s 2021 releases, as only “Halloween Kills” has had a simultaneous Peacock and theatrical release.

Exactly What is the Plot of “Sing 2”?
The ambitious koala with movie-house dreams, Buster Moon, is back in this sequel, and it doesn’t disappoint. The stakes are bigger, the competition is fiercer, and the soundtrack is even more powerful than in the original.
This time around, Moon and company are gunning for a job at the glitzy Crystal Tower Theater in Redshore City, owned by actual entertainment wolf Jimmy Crystal.
The cast of “Sing” is back with a production of “Alice in Wonderland” that’s packed with familiar tunes.
A talent scout who doesn’t believe they have what it takes to make it in the big leagues, an intimidating boss (Crystal), and the falsehood that Buster Moon has connections to reclusive rockstar Clay Calloway (who hasn’t performed in years after the death of his wife, despite Moon promising Crystal he’ll be performing with them) all stand in the way of their journey to fame.
Many different kinds of cartoon shenanigans set to a good soundtrack, including both old and new hits, bode well for a really fun sequel film.
The Cast of “Sing 2”: Who’s Back?
When these famous voices take their talents to the next level and sing for the animated characters, it’s a lot of fun to try to determine who voices who.
Matthew McConaughey is the brains of Buster Moon. Tori Kelly gives Meena the elephant’s lullabies a powerful performance. Rosita, the Supermom pig, gets a dose of Reese Witherspoon’s boundless vitality.
Gunter, the champion pig and source of much humour, is voiced by Nick Kroll. Johnny, who is voiced by Taron Egerton, is a diligent worker. In “Sing,” Jennifer Saunders plays Nana, a former performer who bought Moon’s theatre and saved it from being reduced to rubble.
Bono, main singer of U2, lends his voice to the lion rocker Clay Calloway. Singer and “Sing” series director Garth Jennings provides hilarious A glass-eyed lizard named Miss Crawly.
Scarlett Johansson’s Ash (a powerful porcupine) is on her own in this film and is a significant asset thanks to her extensive knowledge of Clay Calloway through her fandom.
In addition to Halsey as Crystal’s daughter Porsha and Chelsea Peretti as talent recruiter dog Suki, the new cast also features Adam Buxton as tough dance teacher Klaus Kickenklober, Letitia Wright as the breakdancing cat Nooshy, Eric Andre as the arrogant heartthrob Darius, and Pharrell Williams as the elephant Alfonso (Pharrell Williams).
According to Collider, the film also features a voice cameo from director Wes Anderson, who, like Edgar Wright and Chris Renaud (“Despicable Me”), also appeared in the original “Sing.”
Is the First “Sing” Movie Available Online?
A live stream of “Sing” may be viewed on FuboTV.
Exactly What is the Meaning of the Song “Sing”?
Prior to making it to Redshore City and later booking gigs in other large cities, Buster Moon and his performers were just people attempting to follow their ambitions.
Moon, who was struggling to keep the theatre afloat financially, came up with the idea of holding a singing competition to draw in new customers.
Through the ups and downs of the rollercoaster that Moon operates, Rosita, Ash, Johnny, Gunther, and eventually Meena, persuaded by her mother and grandfather, audition for the show, drawing crowds to the shell of what once was the theatre (due to an extravagant accident involving tanks full of glowing squid) and drawing the attention of their small town.
