Sing (also stylized as SING) is a 2016 American 3D computer-animated musical comedy film produced by Illumination (then known as Illumination Entertainment)[1]. It was directed and written by Garth Jennings and co-directed by Christophe Lourdelet[2]. The film stars the voices of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Tori Kelly, Taron Egerton, and Nick Kroll. The film centers around a group of anthropomorphic animals that enter a singing competition hosted by a koala hoping to save his theater.

The film has more than 85 classic songs from famous artists and also has an original song by Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande called "Faith"[3]. It was released by Universal Pictures on December 21, 2016. The film received generally positive reviews, and has grossed $634.33 million worldwide. Along with The Secret Life of Pets, it marked the first time that Illumination released two feature films in the same year.
