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. 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! ❤️❤️❤️❤️😘

  2. 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

  3. it would be nice if there was an albino girl koala in 3, she would sing and dance with Buster

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
