Coming August 12 – Sing
Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist and bit of a scoundrel, Buster takes a final chance to restore his fading jewel by producing the world's greatest singing competition – which accidentally becomes grander than he intended. Five contestants find that their lives will never be the same: a mouse, timid elephant, pig, gorilla, and punk-rock porcupine. From Illumination Entertainment.
