Attention: this article contains spoilers for Sing 2.
The soundtrack to Sing 2 includes tracks by Prince, Billy Irish, U2 and other artists, and each song becomes a hit. “Sing 2″ is the sequel to 2016’s “Singing,” in which the main characters gathered for an audition at Mr. Moon’s Theater with a stellar cast including Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon and Scarlett Johansson. In 2021, Sing 2 brought back the gang for another musical adventure with all the star power of the first, as well as the animated debut of rock legend Bono.
“Sing 2″ continues indefinitely after the end of Sing, when the actors perform the musical “Alice in Wonderland” in the rebuilt Buster Moon New Moon Theater. A talent seeker came to the show, but he left not happy, and Buster hatches a plan: to take the team to the fabulous Redshore City (a repeat of Las Vegas) to audition for the biggest name in show business: Mr. Jimmy Crystal.
