Kingsman: The Golden Circle actor Taron Egerton and Captain America: Civil War actress Scarlett Johansson are among the stars set to enthrall audiences when the musical comedy Sing hits theaters this December. Completing the star-studded cast who have lent their voices to the new film are Reese Witherspoon and Matthew McConaughey, who said they are excited for their kids to see the film.
Also joining the veteran Hollywood actors are actor-producer and Seth MacFarlane and Tori Kelly. The latter is noted for jumpstarting her career during her teens by joining the American singing competition television series American Idol. Though eliminated from American Idol, she went on to work on her own music, which is one of the takeaway messages of Sing.
The movie follows the high-grossing summer animated flick The Secret Life of Pets, that stoked worldwide audience interest with the familiar concept of furry creatures embarking on adventures when their pet parents are away.
Just like other animated flicks, Sing may appeal to young and mature audiences. It can be a kick to hear famous actors and actresses voicing cute characters again on the big screen. The actors heading up the star-studded cast, notably Taron and Iron Man actress Scarlett Johansson, have other big projects coming out in 2017.
Animation studio Illumination Entertainment’s top brass said things get “absolutely magical and hysterical” when all the characters begin showcasing their talents. On a deeper note, the movie revolves around how individuals can find their authentic selves. People yearning to unleash their inner passion or creativity will do well to watch the movie.
Taron, who plays the gorilla who desires to sing but is being pushed by his gangster father to engage in , tweeted that he is “so proud to be a part of such an extraordinary movie.”
A month ago, Reese also tweeted to her online followers that they can call her Rosita, in reference to her Sing character as a shy mother pig who finally gets the opportunity to bask in the limelight, prompting some fans to comment that it looks like a cool and “fun” movie.
Sing is slated to hit theaters in the US on December 21, 2016. The new musical comedy had earlier premiered at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Canada as part of the Toronto International Film Festival. The star-studded cast was excitedly greeted by fans during the red-carpet event.
