Dapper Koala Buster Moon presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. An eternal optimist, and a bit of a scoundrel, he loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Facing the crumbling of his life's ambition, he takes one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition. Five contestants emerge: a mouse, a timid elephant, a pig, a gorilla and a punk-rock porcupine.
Los Angeles Times - "An old-school backstage musical that celebrates the magic of putting on a show."
Entertainment Weekly - "After conquering the box office with yellow minions and pets with secret lives, Illumination Entertainment returns with its sweetest and most charming project yet."
Boston Globe - "Entertainment whose pace and sound, while dizzyingly brisk at points, still accommodates characters and a setting that are terrifically rich."
Associated Press - "It's hard to beat a good singing contest. And anchoring it all is [Matthew] McConaughey's pleasing drawl. His koala is a nice balance, neither too sweet nor too nasty, neither too corny nor too cynical."
Rated PG. Run time 1 hour 50 minutes.
