is the sequel to Sing 2 produced by Sing Illumination, and lllumination’s 11th full-length animated film. It was released by Universal Pictures on December 22, 2021, and received positive reviews from critics.
Buster Moon and his cast of underdogs push their talents beyond their local theater, hoping for a shot to perform at the most prestigious venue in the entertainment capital of the world: The Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City. But with no connections, they'll first have to sneak into Crystal Entertainment Offices and impress the powerful and egotistical entertainment mogul — and likely gangster — wolf, Jimmy Crystal, to prove that they are worthy of his stage. Crystal will let them perform, on the condition that Buster convince the world’s most reclusive rock legend, lion Clay Calloway, to come out of his self-imposed seclusion after the death of his wife and persuade him to perform in the show.

If count the Scott Pilgrim re-release, this is the 4th theatrical release of 2021 I'm involved in, so no one can say I'm not doing my part.
