Great news for fans of the animated musical comedy franchise, Sing 3 is officially in “deep development”! Illumination Entertainment founder, Chris Meledandri, revealed in a recent interview that the sequel would continue with beloved characters from the original cast but take them on a journey into a completely new world.
How much money did Sing 1 and Sing 2 make?
After the successful box office performance of the first movie, Sing, which grossed a staggering $634 million worldwide, the pressure was on for its sequel, Sing 2, which unfortunately only brought in $408 million despite its increased budget.
However, Meledandri assured fans that the streaming success of Sing 2 proved that there is still a strong desire for more of the Sing universe and its characters.
The Sing franchise boasts an all-star voice cast including the likes of Scarlett Johansson and Taron Egerton, and has become a favorite for families and music lovers alike. With no official release date or trailer released yet, fans can only speculate on what new songs and adventures the movie will bring.
Despite the lack of concrete information, it’s exciting to know that the third installment is confirmed and in the works. The animation Sing has been a huge success and continues to capture the hearts of audiences worldwide. We can’t wait to see what kind of magic and music the movie will bring to the big screen.
What To Expect From Sing 3: A Look At Potential Plot Directions And Cast Returns
The animated musical comedy franchise, Sing, has been a fan favorite since its debut in 2016. The series, created by Illumination Entertainment, follows the story of Buster Moon, a koala who runs a struggling theater and attempts to revive it by organizing a singing competition.
The first Sing movie was a box office hit, grossing over $634 million worldwide, while the sequel, Sing 2, did not perform as well, bringing in $408 million despite its increased budget. Nevertheless, the franchise’s popularity has not waned, and fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Sing 3. In this article, we explore potential plot directions and cast returns for the upcoming movie.
Sing 3 is currently in “deep development,” according to Illumination Entertainment founder, Chris Meledandri. Meledandri has confirmed that the movie will continue with characters from the original cast but take them on a new journey into a completely new world. While no official plot details have been released, it’s possible that the film could follow Buster Moon as he takes his show on the road to a new city.
Buster‘s proteges, Johnny the gorilla, and Meena the elephant could potentially join him, as they continue their journey to stardom. Alternatively, the story could follow a new character who is inspired by Buster and his showmanship and starts their own theater, with the support of Buster and his friends. The possibilities for plot directions are endless, and fans can only speculate on what the Sing 3 movie will bring.
It’s uncertain which cast members will return for Sing 3, as it’s still in the development stage. However, it’s possible that some cast members may not return, given their busy schedules or if their characters are not central to the plot’s new direction. Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon, who voiced Ash the porcupine and Rosita the pig, respectively, may decide to opt out due to their long list of other commitments.
However, it’s likely that the main character, Buster Moon, will return, with Matthew McConaughey reprising his role. Despite McConaughey’s tendency not to stick around in franchises, his character is essential to the story and has been a fan favorite since the first movie’s release.
Additionally, Taron Egerton, who voices Johnny, and Tori Kelly, who voices Meena, may return, with the story potentially centering on their journey to stardom. Bono, who voiced rock star Lion Clay Calloway in Sing 2, could potentially make a cameo in the new film.
Production Timeline Of Sing 3
Animated films take a long time to develop and produce, and it’s possible that Sing 3 could come out another five years after Sing 2. This would mean that any cast members attached would have been playing their characters for a full decade by the time it arrived in theaters. However, fans of the franchise will have to wait for official confirmation from Illumination Entertainment regarding the release date.
Given the success of the previous movies, it’s likely that the third installment will continue to center around the world of show business and the power of music to bring people together. Buster Moon, the ambitious Koala who kickstarted the franchise with his singing competition, will likely play a pivotal role in the new film. His proteges Johnny and Meena, both of whom found success in the music industry thanks to Buster‘s guidance, are also expected to return.
However, the absence of certain cast members is also a possibility. Scarlett Johansson and Reese Witherspoon, who voiced characters in Sing 2, may not be able to reprise their roles due to other commitments. Meanwhile, Taron Egerton and Tori Kelly, who played Johnny and Meena respectively, could be front and center as they take on new challenges in their musical careers.
As for the release date, it’s difficult to say for certain when the movie will hit theaters. Given the long production timeline of animated films, it’s possible that fans may have to wait several years before the next installment in the franchise is released. However, with the success of the first two movies and the enthusiastic response to the film announcement, it’s clear that audiences are eagerly awaiting the next chapter in the Sing story.
