This cheerful and big-hearted musical from the Despicable Me/Secret Life of Pets animation studio and writer-director Garth Jennings (Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Son of Rambow) features an all-star voice cast including Matt McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Seth MacFarlane, and Jennifer Hudson, and a crowd pleasing soundtrack. Telling the story of a once grand theater that has fallen on hard times, the Koala owner both dapper and a scoundrel will do anything to restore it to its former glory. How? By staging the world's greatest singing competition. Five lead contestants, including a timid teen-aged elephant, a suave but shady mouse, a stay-at-home mama pig, a gansta' gorilla and a punk porcupine, all believe this show is the one chance to change the course of their life.
