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

In this wolrd of anthropomorphic animals, Buster Moon (Academy Award® winner Matthew McConaughey) is a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times.

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