At the Liberty: Sing 2

 

February 3, 2022



Sing 2 - The new chapter in this animated franchise returns with big dreams and spectacular hit songs as koala Buster Moon and his all-star cast of animal performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet. There’s just one hitch: They first must persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star (played by legendary music icon Bono) to join them.

Buster (played by Matthew McConaughey) and his cast have turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit. Still, Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City.

But with no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother pig Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), rocker porcupine Ash (Scarlett Johansson), earnest gorilla Johnny (Taron Egerton), shy elephant Meena (Tori Kelly), and, of course, porcine provocateur extraordinaire Gunter (Nick Kroll)—have to sneak their way into the world-famous Crystal Entertainment offices, run by a ruthless mogul wolf named Jimmy Crystal (Emmy winner Bobby Cannavale).


In a desperate attempt to get Mr. Crystal’s attention, Gunter spontaneously pitches an outrageous idea that Buster quickly runs with, promising that their new show will star lion rock legend Clay Calloway (Bono). Problem is, Buster has never met Clay, an artist who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife and hasn’t been seen since.

Sing 2 has added other new characters played by music superstars Pharrell Williams and Halsey, Black Panther’s Letitia Wright, and comedians Eric Andre and Chelsea Peretti.

Sing 2 combines dozens of classic rock and pop hit songs, electrifying performances, breathtaking artistry, and Illumination’s signature humor and heart into the definitive feel-good cinematic event of 2022. Rotten Tomatoes rates this at 68% favorable by the critics and 98 % by the audiences. This movie is rated PG for some rude material and mild peril/violence. The runtime is 110 minutes.

The seats in the front row of the Liberty Theater balcony have been removed temporarily because of safety concerns and lack of compliance with our rule of no children in the front row under age 13, with or without a parent. We are trying to keep people safe, so we have taken this temporary action.
