Bono voices the reclusive rock star Lion in the first trailer for "Sing 2"

Illumination's cast of singing animals is back for Sing 2, whose first trailer runs the gamut from Drake lyrics to a rousing chorus of U2.

Enterprising koala Buster Moon has brought his ragtag group of talented musicians to the glamorous Redshore City. His plan to stage an epic show hinges on whether he can persuade a reclusive rock legend, voiced - yep - by Bono, to join them. Watch the trailer below:

Sing 2 reunites much of the voice cast from the 2016 original, including Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Nick Kroll, Taron Egerton, and Tori Kelly. Among the newcomers are Pharrell Williams, Letitia Wright, Eric Andre, and Chelsea Peretti. Garth Jennings returns to write and direct, with Illumination CEO Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy producing.

Universal will release the film in theaters on December 22. It will be the first feature from Illumination in two and a half years, following 2019's The Secret Life of Pets 2.
