From the creators of Despicable Me comes an all new animated tale destined to warm the hearts of both adults and children alike yet again.
In a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, dapper koala Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) launches the world’s greatest singing competition in hopes of restoring his once-grand theatre to its former glory. Five lead contests emerge: a mouse (Seth MacFarlane) who croons as smoothly as he cons, a timid teenage elephant (Tori Kelly) with an enormous case of stage fright, an overtaxed mother (Reese Witherspoon) run ragged tending a litter of 25 piglets, a young gangster gorilla (Taron Egerton) looking to break free of his family’s felonies, and a punk-rock porcupine (Scarlett Johansson) struggling to shed her arrogant boyfriend and go solo.
Each animal arrives believing that this is their shot to change the course of their life in a musical comedy about finding the shining star that lives inside all of us.
