Buster Moon’s theater is a raging success with its latest rendition of Alice in Wonderland (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer).  Gunther, Rosita, Meena, and Johnny shine with Nana watching from her private booth above.  During the performance, Miss Crawly watches Suki in the audience.  Suki is an agent for Crystal Entertainment.  Suki starts to leave before the second act, and Buster chases after her to find out why.  She tells Buster that the show is cute but not ready for the big leagues.  With his dreams dashed, Buster tells Nana.  Nana tells Buster that nobody can crush his dreams but him.  If he wants something, he needs to fight for it.  

Buster comes up with a plan, but he needs one more arrow in his quiver: Ash.  With the original crew in tow, everyone boards a bus to Crystal Entertainment to audition for Jimmy Crystal.  Buster and his friends finagle their way onto the audition stage, but Jimmy won’t let them get past their intro.  Jimmy turns to leave.  In an outburst, Gunther says something that makes Jimmy turn around.  Gunther dreamed of a sci-fi play with Clay Calloway as the star.  No one has seen Clay since his wife died.  So Jimmy asks Buster if he knows Clay.  Buster lies.  Jimmy agrees to back the show and gives Buster 3 weeks to put it together.  With the funding, Buster has one problem.  He doesn’t have a script.  So, he and Gunther start working.  After they partially complete the play, Buster sees each crew member has an unforeseen issue.  Johnny can’t dance, which the big fight scene needs.  The star, Rosita, needs to make a big dive in her performance.  But she is afraid of heights.  During a progress check, Jimmy’s daughter, Porsha, shows Rosita how to do it.  Porsha demands to be the star, and Jimmy makes Buster do it.  But Porsha can’t act.  Buster’s final hurdle is Clay.  Miss Crawly tried to get him, but he threw her out of his home.  Buster and Ash go to talk to him, but Clay says no.  Ash can see how much Clay is hurting.  So she tells Buster to leave, and she will continue to help Clay take the stage.  When Jimmy discovers that Buster doesn’t have Clay, he threatens to end the show and Buster’s life.  But as long as Porsha is the star, Jimmy will keep funding the play.  After he downgrades Porsha, can Buster pull off the show of his career?

The sequel to Sing has all the laughs and foot-tapping music of the first movie.  But it doesn’t have the same inspiring premises as its predecessor.  In the past, the actors had to get over issues in their lives.  This time, the movie has a bad guy for them to fight collectively.  So their inner demons take a back seat.  Also, the funniest moments are in the trailer.  With these few negatives, the movie still entertains with current and original songs.  This sequel makes the film feel final, so it’s doubtful they will create a part three.
