Have you ever heard a porcupine sing?
The musical animals of Illumination’s Sing franchise are back for Sing 2, heading to theaters in December. Matthew McConaughey voices the optimistic koala, Buster Moon, who helps prepare his all-star cast of performers to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet. There’s just one hitch: They have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star — played by Bono, in his animated film debut — to join them.
The cast also includes Reese Witherspoon as mother pig Rosita; Scarlett Johansson as rocker porcupine Ash; Taron Egerto as earnest gorilla Johnny; Tori Kelly as shy elephant Meena; Nick Kroll as porcine provocateur Gunter; Bobby Cannavale as ruthless mogul wolf Jimmy Crystal; and Halsey as Mr. Crystal’s spoiled daughter, Porsha.
TOMY has launched a new line of toys inspired by the characters of Sing 2, including plush toys, collectible figures, an interactive microphone, and more. The Singing Rosita Feature Plush makes six different sound effects and sings the original song “Break Free” from the movie. The Riff-Rock Ash Plush Toy features different play modes and has hair that lights up and changes colors in response to sounds. There are also various plush versions of Meena, Johnny, Buster, and Ash. The Stage Sparkles Figure Set includes four figures with removable microphones and light-up sparkle stages. The Microbeats Interactive Toy Microphone features voice-changing functions and flashing lights. Kids can even hook it up to their own MP3 device to sing along with their favorite songs.
The toys are available now on Amazon. Sing 2 will premiere in theaters on Dec. 22.
