Sing 2 is a toe-tapping, embarrass-your-kids-when-you-sing-out-loud, fun night at the movies with the family. Arriving on December 22, Sing 2 theaters are sure to be filled with families this holiday season. My family had a chance to catch a sneak preview of the sequel and everyone walked away humming a new/old tune.
Thank you to Sing for the movie screening.
Can Illumination do it again with Sing 2?
Honestly, I had my doubts. The original Sing was so surprisingly good, I had my doubts that a sequel could come anywhere close to the original. But, Illumination proved me wrong. Using the same formula that was so successful the first time – plucky characters, a fantastic musical score, a humongous cast (hello Bono!) and a warm story – Sing 2 is a worthy sequel.
Is the movie a bit predictable, sure. It’s a family movie with a happy ending, So, it is no spoiler that everything works out in the end. While it’s not the most original plot, it’s an enjoyable plot with great characters. And if you are taking the kids to the movies, isn’t that what we all want anyway?
And humor, Sing 2 has plenty of it both for adults and for kids. But don’t worry, there’s nothing too adult in this family movie. Even still, I definitely found myself laughing out loud a couple of times and my kids were a fit of giggles.
Sing 2 Soundtrack
Like the original, Sing 2 owes much of its magic to its soundtrack. When you add cute furry characters to some of the best music ever – well, that’s Sing 2. The soundtrack drops on December 17, and I assure you that much like the original has been on repeat for the last FIVE years, this one will be a regular request from my kids.

Sing 2 Toys
It wouldn’t be a kids’ movie without some adorable Sing 2 toys available from Amazon. I was sent these three adorable plush characters (Ash, Buster Moon and Meena) and a singing toy microphone. My girls loved taking their new “friends” with them to see the movie (although mom made the singing microphone stay home).
