We aren’t sure of what exactly the sequel will entail. But it could focus on Buster, Rosita, Mike, Ash, Johnny, Meena, and Gunter prepare for a bigger stage as they leave Moon Theater for the big city.

The sequel could also focus on Buster, who could set up another competition and find new talent.  Mike, who is a proud family man quits jazz, is another interesting character. The sequel could focus on his efforts to rekindle his love for music.

‘Sing 2’ Release date: When is it coming out?

When a popular movie gets a sequel, there is nothing more challenging for fans than the wait for that sequel’s release. While this is especially true for big franchise movies — such as Avengers: Endgame as the follow-up to last year’s Infinity War — it’s also true for other films as well, including Illumination Entertainment’s Sing.

Unfortunately for fans of the animated hit, it looks like the wait for Sing 2 is going to be a little bit longer than originally thought. Universal Pictures has pushed the film’s debut back to December 22, 2021.

Originally, Sing 2 was announced to be released on December 25, 2020. However, on April 12, 2019, the movie was delayed to July 02, 2021. On April 01, 2020, Universal pushed Sing 2 to December 22, 2021 to accommodate Minions: The Rise of Gru which itself was delayed due to production issues and impact of  Covid-19 pandemic on the film industry.

‘Sing 2’ Trailer

The trailer is not available yet. But if the release date remains as is, expect to get a first glimpse at the new film by the end of the year.
