We at borg.com are fans of anthropomorphic animals, whether they come in the form of Muppets or found in Alice in Wonderland or The Golden Compass. A new movie coming from Universal Studios’ Illumination group, the studio that released Despicable Me, features animals pursuing their musical dreams in the city. Sing features an all-star cast of actors’ voicing an American Idol-inspired competition.
A trailer released this week reveals a host of endearing competitors. So endearing you cannot help but want to know… Who is going to win?
Sing stars Matthew McConaughey (a koala bear named Buster Moon who runs a movie theater in need of a kickstart), with contestants Reese Witherspoon (Rosita, a mother pig), Seth MacFarlane (Mike, a mouse), Scarlett Johansson (Ash, a punk rock porcupine), Taron Egerton (Johnny, a young gangsta gorilla), Tori Kelly (Meena, a teenaged elephant), and John C. Reilly. The film is directed and written by Garth Jennings (The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy).
