Animals singing on stage is not the same as animals lip-syncing… with the voices of famous artists. That’s what happened in Sing, and it was a success, and it is what repeats Sing 2 Come and sing again!, and the result remains the same.
Now if they do the same in Sing 3 don’t expect people to come out of the theater clapping.

Illumination, the animation studio behind My favorite villain Y Minions, he hit it in 2016 with Sing. The Garth Jennings film (who returns to lend his voice in the original version to Miss Crawley) was about, is a way of saying, about how a businessman koala tried to save the closure of his theater, doing a show in which other animals Humanoids (because somehow you have to call the characters) performed a casting that exceeded their expectations.
As surely it was the 634 million dollars that the first one raised Sing Worldwide.

The songs were many. Someone took the trouble to count them, but they got tired and reached 85 hits from the 40s until that present, 2016.
The new one
Now there may not be so many, but there are very well-known and varied rhythms, but the fundamental thing is that now Buster Moon -the businessman koala- has to get, in any case, that the formerly successful and now retired Clay Calloway comes out of his ostracism – their motives will have- and accompany them on a show.

There is a powerful multimillionaire businessman, a white wolf, who wants his daughter to act in a show, and at the casting Buster and his people convince him that they know Clay and that they can make a musical in space, and… Yes Clay does not accept, the life – and not only the artistic one – of Buster would be in serious danger.
Why? Well, join your children, nephews, cousins or grandchildren and you will find out.

Of course, most of the copies that are screened in theaters in Argentina are dubbed, spoken in Spanish. But beware, that in some theaters they do project the original version, that is, not dubbed into Spanish, but with subtitles.
And there you can hear Matthew McConaughey (Buster Moon), Reese Witherspoon (Rosita the pig), Scarlett Johansson (Ash). And among the new characters, Alfonso is voiced by Pharrell Williams, and the lion by Clay Calloway – who sings not for nothing. I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For-, Bond. The funny thing is that in the Latin version Clay has the voice of Chayanne. And this is not the place to make hateful comparisons.

And, you know, the China Suarez gave the voice in Castilian to the Elephanta. And the U2 interpret the theme for which, perhaps, in one of those, they achieve their third Oscar nomination (Your Song Saved My Life). And there is not much else.
