Will there be a Sing 3? Here’s what we know about a sequel:

Sing 3

If you’re a fan of Sing and Sing 2 or are a fan of the X-Factor style competitions that these movies were seemingly inspired by, you might be interested in a third outing for Buster Moon and his talented friends.

But will Sing 3 become a reality? Or has the sequel been eliminated by the powers-that-be? Here’s what we know so far:

What are the Sing movies about?

The first movie focused on Buster Moon, a Koala who presided over a theatre that had fallen on hard times. To preserve his theatre, he decided to produce the world’s greatest singing competition. The event drew in a number of talented singing acts and these helped to keep Buster’s theatre open.

In Sing 2, Buster took his theatre group to Redshore City, the entertainment capital of the world, where he hoped to impress a music mogul and hit the big time. To improve his chances, he tried to persuade Clay Calloway, the world’s most reclusive rock star to join them. Did he succeed? Well, there will be no spoilers here but the outcome won’t be a surprise to you if you have seen stories like this one before.

Will there be a Sing 3?

At the time of writing, there are no confirmed plans for Sing 3. The decision will likely lie with Illumination Entertainment, the studio behind the Sing movies, and Garth Jennings, the director of the movies we have seen so far.

They haven’t announced a third movie yet but Matthew McConaughey, the actor who played Buster Moon, has discussed the possibility of a sequel. In an interview with CinemaBlend, when responding to the lack of a song and dance number from his character in the previous Sing movies, he said:

“Maybe Sing 3, but it wasn’t in this one and a lot of people have been saying that and I’m like that’s right, Buster Moon should sing, whistle, diddy, hum, dance, something. Oh, that’d be super fun. That could be it. Bring it up to the director, I’m with you. You hear that Garth?”

We don’t know if Garth has listened to Matthew or the fans that think Buster should get his moment on stage but as there is clearly interest in Sing 3 from people who have loved the movies, it might be that a sequel could happen.

Who could we see in Sing 3?

If Sing 3 is released, we are likely to see Buster again and the various other animals that made up his theatre troupe. These include Meena the Elephant (Tori Kelly), Johnny the Gorilla (Taron Egerton), and porcupine rocker Ash (Scarlett Johansson).

What could Sing 3 be about?

In terms of plotline, we would likely see Buster and co continue their rise to the top. If they do become world famous, it might be that they realise fame isn’t all its cracked up to be, perhaps because one or more of the characters let fame go to their head.

This is just speculation as we have no way of knowing what the story might be at this point. However, we imagine it would follow the themes that have come before, such as…

  • stay true to yourself
  • never give up
  • follow your dream

When could Sing 3 be released?

There was a 5-year gap between Sing and Sing 2 so if the people behind the movie follow this pattern, Sing 3 could be released in 2027.

This is assuming a third movie is given the green light. But as Illumination Studios has already released three Despicable Me movies and two spin-offs with the adorable/irritating (delete as applicable) Minions, it’s clear that they aren’t averse to continuing their franchises. As such, we suspect they will announce ‘Sing 3’ or a spin-off with one of the main Sing characters at some point in the future.

  1. Everyone wants Sing 3 to happen with the main cast and bringing back Eddie, Mike and Nancy. I would like to have Eddie back.

    However, the one thing about Sing’s latest installment that will not leave my mind is Suki Lane. I’m dying to know more about her than the other characters, even though fans and execs despise her.

    She is a secret dream design of mine come true, and relates so much to me. We’re both picky enthusaists towards entertainment, we’re both soft-spoken, we both deal with loud overbearing figures, we both like the color teal, we both don’t have friends as we tend to be antisocial, we’re both on our computers frequently (me on my laptop(s), her on her phone), and we’re both viewed as jerks even though we care. Also, I happen to have a thing for cartoon Salukis ever since Rita from Oliver & Company.

    We know so little about her and as someone who feels so a kin to her, I find it unfair that no one cares if she comes back or not. She may not be a Halsey wolf, but her character deserves to be explored more to show that she’s more than a no-nonsense businesslady and can be as likable as the other characters if written properly. I’ve never really wanted anything else from Illumination. I’d rather have more content of her than other Minions or Secet Life of Pets stuff.

    Since her actress, Chelsea Peretti, is also technically a singer and songwriter, I feel like she also deserves a chance to sing a song of her own just like Buster should. Johnny, Ash, Rosita, Meena, Porsha, and Mike have already proven themselves with their talent.

    Before rewatching Sing 2 and losing the ability to sit through it, due to being put off by so many things, I noticed a number of fans (albeit a small number) shipped her with our main character, Buster Moon. I started to become a supporter of the fan pairing and even thought it’s something that should happen in a future Sing installment, because I thought it had potential. I like the opposites-attract pairing (because frankly, the whole ‘love-at-first-sight’ thing is overrated and done to death), happy boy/grouchy girl pairs, and tall girl-short guy pairs (like Roger and Jessica), and we seriously need more of that in films but not as jokes. If Zootopia could have a female rabbit-male fox pairing (though it’s not official), there should be no reason why another anthropomorphic animal movie shouldn’t have a pair similar but with the heights reversed.

    Sadly though, I started to lose faith in it. And it’s all due to Suki falling in last place in the popularity contest with execs and fans alike, people preferring Buster with another koala, Eddie (due to his being his best friend and people wanting more LGBTQ rep), Ash (despite the fact that she’s a teen), Miss Crawley, Rosita (even though she’s happily married to Norman), or even the wolf who tried to kill him. It also doesn’t help that the koala and the Saluki didn’t have enough scenes together, that she lacks scenes to be funny (due to the film being overcrowded with other characters), that Illumination plans to be more relevant to the future, that there’s not any merchandise of her, that characters like her are often forgotten/given the axe by execs or writers of cartoons, that Matthew McConnaughey doesn’t want to play Buster again except for one more film, or that Crystal Entertainment holds her back apparently with viewers accepting it.

    But honestly, I think she deserves someone in her life and we deserve to know more about her rather than having her be brushed off as a one-note businesswoman that’s hard to please. She doesn’t seem like a completely heartless bitch.

    I’d at least give her a spin-off, focusing on her life outside of work, making her more sympathetic than she was in Sing 2, showing that she has relatives (maybe even a male child that she could be a mother figure to), but I’d rather not have her love-interest be the tall, dark, handsome Gary-Stu Mr. Perfect type, especially one in the form of a canine. We have plenty of those in cartoons.

  2. Well to begin Sing 1 and 2 were phenomenal movies and the hints of Johnny and Nooshy, as well as Meena and Alfonzo, being couples but also Ash and Clay. As for Buster Moon, Guntar, and Rosita, they have nothing left to face therefore just like in sing 2 they should have minor roles. Now I come to my favorite character Porsha she is a character who is a drama queen, an amazing singer, and yet has so much potential as a character. And Sing 2 leaves us with so many questions, such as why isn’t Porsha on the front cover of the Blue Ray/DVD case? How does Clay get along with Ash? And how does Porsha’s life go on from the end of Sing 2? It would be smashing if there could be a Sing 3 as long as the movie isn’t rushed, each character stays true to their voice, nothing unnecessary, and to see more of Porsha.

  3. I love sing 1 and 2 and it has an effect on my life so pleasssssssssssssssssse make a sing 3. I also think in sing 3 Johnny and Nooshy should be a couple and I love the idea of them being world famous and it getting to them (not to all of them though so it gives it some drama). Thanks for reading

  4. Porsha is my favorite character in the entire franchise and I would really like to see her again in a third installment with a song just as beautiful as Could Have Been Me and if I could ask for more, a spin-off of her with Suki trying to run the administration of crystal entertainment and clear the name of the company as long as porsha continues to mature, meet someone and reach the top as an artist of course without moving away from moon, suki and the others

  5. I Really Really want Sing 3 so bad now that I heard and seen this and when I mean Really Really want I mean Really Really want so Please do a Sing 3 because I’ve seen the 1st Sing and Sing 2 in theaters so please do and make a Sing 3 because the 1st and 2nd one were awesome and I liked them so please make a Sing 3 as soon as possible and as soon as you can but I’m not trying to rush you on it and everything else like that but hopefully all of the characters will be the same ones like the ones that were in the first 2 like Johnny, Buster Moon, Meena, Rosita, Gunter, Ash, Mike, Norman, Ms Crawley and all of the other characters that were in and on the first 2 so please do and make a Sing 3 as soon as possible because I looked it up on Google and it says that Sing 3 could be released in 2027 and I don’t think that I could wait that long because I really want to see it

  6. I love both movies and would love them to make a new movie they should bring ash and mabe she finds a better boyfriend rosita her husband gunter and their amazing kids should come back meena and alfonso should sing together buster moon should expand his horizions they should bring back eddie mike and his girlfriend since we don’t know what happened to them and bring mrs crawly and nana noodleman and they johny and nooshy should fall in love porsha should also find love clay should sing a song in memory of his wife ruby darius should also come back and i would love for one of the animals to sing another one bites the dust

  7. Me and my wife watch both Sing 1 and 2 at least once a week! We have both memorized the entire movies and will constantly use the lines in every day life! These movies are amazing and a number 3 is an absolute must. We are Sing Tragics as proud as they come and can’t get enough of them!

  8. I would love to see Sing 3. Could you bring back Seth Mac Farlane if not Mike some other character who could sing like Mike. Love relationships more singing dancing. Please let Buster sing or dance a little. Soft Shoe maybe
    Busby Berkeley type of show. Gunther And Rosita in center how about something aquatic like Ester Williams. With squid power. Have fun. Everyone from both casts. New and old friends. More Nanna Noodleman. Her Nephew. Please Make 3.

  9. How many sing movies does everyone think there will be? I just love them. Here’s to more adventures to our favorite animals in Sing! ❤️❤️❤️❤️😘

  10. I really want them to make a sing 3 movie, in fact that 2027 is far away I’ll probably be 16 at that date, of the month…..I really wish it could be made sooner I wanna see meena and the kola play in the movie, maybe they can play the song called I can’t fight this feeling anymore that would be awesome maybe just maybe I’d get a kick out of Jonny if he plays the Seven Nation army, that would rock 🎸 and make Jonny play the guitar please that would be great and add a band behind Jonnys scene 😀 I

  11. I’m a fan of Eddie, Buster’s best and real friend from Sing 1, I was a little bit upset that I only saw his image in Sing 2. Hope he gonna be in expected Sing 3. 2027 is way too far, untill that year I might be already having a wife and dozen of children, I don’t think if I’ll be having time to watch.

  12. I really liked the second Sing movie better than the first. I think a lot of boys are wanting to see more of Porsha. I think Porsha should have a boyfriend like Meena did and Meena’s ice cream man, sitting in the front row, gave her confidence. Porsha would look hot in a bikini. I think whoever is the largest stock holder in Redshore City would be a better boss for Suki Lane. Nooshy would look hot as a belly dancer. Clay Calloway would write a song dedicated to his dead wife Ruby.

  13. I REALLY REALLY want a Sing 3.
    I saw Sing 2 in my English class at school and fell in love with it. I loved all the cute animals, loveable songs, and breathtaking story. Everything about Sing 2 is beautiful.

    If there is a Sing 3 then my greatest wish is to see Johnny and Nooshy as well as Menna and Alfonso become couples.
