Imagine a singing competition in Zootopia and you’ve got the basics for Universal Pictures/Illumination Entertainment’s Sing.

Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.

Sing opens on December 21st. The new trailer follows the break.
