A koala impresario stages a grand singing competition for the world's animals in order to save his elegant theater in this quirky animated musical.
In a plot line that combines elements of old backstage musicals with X Factor-like talent shows, Buster Moon (voiced by Matthew McConaughey) is the koala who runs a grand but decaying old theatre. He’s out of money and the bank is about to foreclose on him. In a last-ditch effort to keep the theatre going, he stages a singing competition.
It’s cheery, toe-tapping fare that kids are bound to enjoy and that has plenty of nostalgia and in-jokes to keep the adults laughing too. The music is incessant and very well chosen, and the cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Saunders and many more.
