Sing 3: Sequel Officially Announced by Illumination

After the successful release of Sing 2 in late 2021, Illumination officially announced that Sing 3 is in development.
2016’s Sing received widespread acclaim from fans and critics while also earning more than $634 million worldwide.
As a result, its success led to Sing 2, which ultimately earned positive reviews while also dominating the streaming realm amid the onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2021.
While one of the main selling points of the first two Sing movies is its star-studded cast, the animated films also showcased a heartfelt story that elevates its incredible characters

Meledandri’s confirmation that the original cast is returning means that its all-star ensemble featuring the likes of Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, and Matthew McConaughey will all come back.
Sing 2 generated more than $400 million at the box office, but it premiered in theaters during the Omicron COVID-19 wave, which affected its ticket sales.
Despite that, Meledandri pointed out that the sequel was a streaming hit, becoming the third highest-streamed movie overall in the United States in 2022 with over over 80 million streams on Netflix.
The Illumination boss explained that the sequel’s streaming success served as a beacon that “fans want to stay in this world with these characters:”
What Is Sing 3’s Story? (Theory)
At the end of Sing 2, Buster, Rosita, Johnny, and the rest of the gang successfully put on a show, recruit star lion Clay Calloway out of retirement, and place media mogul Jimmy Crystal behind the bars.
The sequel ended on a happy note, with Suki confirming that The Majestic was interested in signing Buster’s group and putting their show at their theater.
Given that Sing 3 is now confirmed, the threequel may explore the aftermath of the team’s success and expand on the story of how The Majestic tries to capitalize on their talents.
However, a more interesting narrative that Sing 3 could explore is a story set years after Sing 2’s happy ending. It’s possible that Buster and the rest of the core group disbanded due to an unknown reason, thus leading to a threequel centered around the group’s reunion for another show.
A reunion plot for Sing 3 allows a more compelling storyline while also highlighting the group’s core dynamic (which is the franchise’s strength).
Hopefully, more concrete details about Sing 3 will emerge sooner rather than later.
