Recently, all three of my kids were lucky enough to be treated to a move in a real theater by their school’s Home School Association. They saw the movie Sing, which I had been dying to see, what with all of the promos on TV. I was very jealous of them but was determined to somehow see this movie. It’s hitting stores on Tuesday, 3/21, so I was going to pick up a copy. However, I was so lucky to be offered a copy of the special edition of Sing to review in advance. This edition features 3 new mini-movies so my kids were even more eager to watch it again.
From Illumination Entertainment, the studio that brought you THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS comes an animated comedy about finding the music that lives inside all of us.
SING stars Matthew McConaughey as Buster Moon, an eternally optimistic koala who puts on the world’s greatest singing competition to save his crumbling theater; winner Reese Witherspoon as Rosita, an overworked and underappreciated mother of 25 piglets desperate to unleash her inner diva; Scarlett Johansson as Ash, a punk rock porcupine with a beautiful voice behind her prickly exterior; and Taron Egerton as Johnny, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies.
I loved it, just like I knew I would. To me, it was like watching the very first season of American Idol, but with a bit of (kid-friendly) The Real World with the backgrounds of the characters. I can see Sing easily becoming a favorite for our family – I bet yours will love it too, especially if they haven’t seen it yet.
Before I get to the really good news, I’ve got an exclusive clip for you! Reese Witherspoon, who voices Rosita, mom of 25(!) piglets but does so ingeniously, talks about how Rosita and how she identifies with her character.
