Hitting all the high notes, Sing, the animated tale of various animal characters entering a talent contest to unleash their hidden talents, is about to get a follow up after a stellar box office performance.
Following on from sequels to the likes of the Despicable Me, Secret Life Of Pets and Minions films, the news marks the birth of another franchise for Illumination Entertainment.
Sing, directed by Garth Jennings, has already earned more than $429 million worldwide and the follow-up is now slated for Christmas Day 2020.
No other details have been announced, so we don’t know if Jennings and his all-star cast will return for the follow up.
And the latest announcement also includes a shift for some of the fellow sequels, with The Secret Life Of Pets 2 moving back from 2018 to 2019, while Minions 2 is making a much smaller jump, to earlier in July 2020. Despicable Me 3, meanwhile, is out on June 30 this year.
