Auditions begin 2016
In a world populated by anthropomorphic animals, a koala named Buster Moon works to keep his theater from closing down. To this end, Buster and his sheep friend Eddie hold a singing contest to raise money, and the entire town auditions for a part in the show. The leading five are an overworked pig named Rosita with her pig partner named Gunther, an arrogant and gambling white mouse named Mike, a punk-rock porcupine named Ash, a timid teenage elephant named Meena, and a British gorilla named Johnny, who wants to sing instead of following his family's criminal footsteps.
"It’s as corny as the syrup tank at a candy factory but it works." ~ The Hollywood Reporter
"It has just the right measurements of simple humour, heart, kawaii-levels of cuteness, zany chase sequences, fart jokes and catchy tunes." ~ The Guardian
