Get ready to Sing – in theaters December 21, 2016 (giveaway ends 12/10/16)



Get your singing voice ready for a new animated feature film called Sing. Sing is coming to theaters on December 21, 2016. 

The film features the voice talents of Academy Award® winners Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon. Sing also stars the voice talents of Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton and Grammy Award-nominated Tori Kelly.

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.

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. www.SingMovie.com

I can’t believe the film has 65 songs in it. Of course it’s not the full version of the songs, but none the less, it will be fun to listen to them and try to remember the song titles and the artists who sang them. It would be like playing the game “Name That Tune.”

Below is the film’s trailer. It also includes a special message from Grammy Award-nominated Tori Kelly.


I think the film is about not letting fear stand in the way of something that you love. I think that is an important message for people – young and old – to take to heart.

To learn more about the film you can check out the Official Website. You can also “like” the film on Facebook and follow the film on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. You can also check out the official hashtag #SingMovie.

You can order your tickets today on Fandango. I use Fandango all the time to buy movie tickets. It saves so much time and I like being able to pick out our seats ahead of time (the reserved seating feature might not be available in all theaters).

You can also download some FREE movie themed activity sheet and coloring pages at  www.SingMovie.com/Printables.
