The new animated feature film, written and directed by Garth Jennings and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, features all of the characters audiences fell in love with in the first film (voiced by Academy Award® winners Matthew McConaughey and Reese Witherspoon, Academy Award® nominee Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Nick Kroll and Garth Jennings), plus new characters played by Academy Award® nominee Pharrell Williams, Halsey, Bobby Cannavale, Letitia Wright, Eric André and Chelsea Peretti. In this new chapter, ever-optimistic Buster Moon and his all-star cast of performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage show yet in the glamorous entertainment capital of the world, Redshore City. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by global music icon, superstar and Academy Award® nominee Bono—to join them. With electrifying performances and breathtaking artistry, SING 2 serves as an emotional reminder about the importance of dreaming big and the power of music to heal.

This special event, hosted by SFFILM Education under its Family Programming initiative, is free and open to the public. We’re excited to welcome back in-person screenings to help us celebrate SFFILM Education’s 30th Anniversary. Advance RSVP is required.

Recommended for ages 7 and up.
