3 Reasons Why You Will LOVE The SING Movie, Plus a SING Prize Pack Giveaway ($50 VISA GC!)
A few weeks ago I took the boys to see a special preview of SING. It was so much fun that I can’t wait to see it again in theaters on December 21st! (They are out of school for an entire week and it is much easier to keep them busy in the movie theater vs. keeping them busy in the house!)
Here are three reasons why I absolutely adored this movie:
The Singing: The line up of power house singers is SO good from my girl Tori Kelly to Ariana Grande, the singing is SO good! Since I am a huge fan of singing competitions I was getting my entire LIFE with the song selections! They did a great job of choosing songs for the old folks to jam to as well as recent pop hits for the kids to enjoy.
The Diversity: The cast is full of animals, and not just the normal cat, dog, mouse either but all kinds of animals–basically any animal you can think of is in this fun animated cast. So only is are the animals diverse but they all have different accents from different parts of the world! I thought this was a fun detail because it reminds kids that people are different physically and can be from another country too!
The Feels: Like with any great movie there were a lot of lessons learned. With each contestant there was an understory, their own struggles that they wanted to overcome–there was one scene that had us all wondering how on earth were they going to recover—but then they do, and it’s awesome 🙂
About the SING Movie:
Illumination has captivated audiences all over the world with the beloved hits Despicable Me, Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, now the second-highest-grossing animated movie in history. Following the release of this summer’s comedy blockbuster The Secret Life of Pets, Illumination presents Sing this holiday season.
The event film stars Academy Award® winners Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, alongside Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton and Grammy Award-nominated Tori Kelly.
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal—some might even say delusional—optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.
Five lead contestants emerge: Mike (MacFarlane), a mouse who croons as smoothly as he cons; Meena (Kelly), a timid teenage elephant with an enormous case of stage fright; Rosita (Witherspoon), an overtaxed mother run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets; Johnny (Egerton), a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; and Ash (Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each arrives under Buster’s marquee believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life. And as Buster coaches each of his contestants closer and closer to the grand finale, he starts to learn that maybe the theater isn’t the only thing that is in need of saving.
Featuring more than 65 hit songs, Sing is produced by Meledandri and his longtime collaborator Janet Healy. Together, they have produced all of Illumination’s films since the studio’s inception. Released by Universal Pictures, Sing arrives in theaters on December 21, 2016.
