Will there be a Sing 3? The possible Universal trilogy explored
Illumination and Universal Pictures are preparing UK fans for the release of the animated musical, Sing 2 – a direct sequel to the 2016 release. The big question on fans’ minds, however, will there be a Sing 3? We’re exploring the possibility of Universal turning wellness films into a trilogy.
Written and directed by Garth Jennings, Sing 2 follows Buster Moon as he and his friends prepare for a new show while trying to recruit rock star Clay Calloway to perform at the event.
Will there be a Sing 3?
At the time of writing, neither Illumination nor Universal Pictures have announced Sing 3.
That being said, several stars of the film have expressed interest in continuing their roles in a third film, including Scarlett Johansson, Tori Kelly and Matthew McConaughey.
Talk to CinemaBlend, McConaughey explained how interested he would be playing a lot of Buster Moon in the third movie – after Sing 2 didn’t include a main character song and dance:
âMaybe Sing 3, but it wasn’t in this one and a lot of people said it and I think it’s true, Buster Moon should be singing, whistling, diddy, humming, dancing, something. Oh, that would be super fun. That could be it. Talk to the director, I’m with you. Do you hear that Garth?
With the release of Sing’s first film in 2016, the sequel wasn’t announced until a year later in 2017, meaning Sing 3 could be announced next year in 2023.
Following the franchise’s previous model, that would put Sing 3’s approximate release year at 2026 – of course fans are hoping for a shorter wait.
Sing 2 – Is it streaming online?
Sing 2 hit theaters on December 22, 2021 in the US, and the UK will premiere on Friday, January 28, 2022.
Since the pandemic shut down theaters around the world for a considerable period of time, new releases these days tend to have an exclusive start duration in theaters before reaching streaming platforms.
Nonetheless, movies are now appearing on streaming services much faster than before.
