If you thought Sing was good, then Sing 2 is just two times as good! Garth Jennings takes us on another journey to pursue dream accompanied by fun music. And remember, it’s okay to clap when you watch this film. 

The Synopsis 

This holiday season, the new chapter in Illumination’s animated franchise arrives  with big dreams and hit songs as the ever-optimistic Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) and his cast of  performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet …all in the  glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch: They first have to  persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by Academy Award® nominee and global music icon BONO, in his animated film debut—to join them.

I was connected with Garth Jennings to talk about Sing 2. He spoke about how this film came about and the advantage of having familiarity with the characters after Sing. Jennings also gave some feedback on how some of the talent’s facial expressions were captured and incorporated into their animated characters. In this conversation we could not miss mentioning Miss.Crawly.
