Studios like DreamWorks, Illumination, Walt Disney Animation, Pixar, Paramount, and more have been working relentlessly for a while now to bring out animated movies that would touch on sensitive topics and won’t cater just to kids but the adults alike.
One such Illumination project is Sing 2 which came out in theatres in late 2022. The story of a bunch of anthropomorphic animal artists who take up the task to bring back a long-lost music legend to the stage. The film touches on the feelings of loss, despair, fright, hope, talent, and more in a very clear manner and has the potential to make an impact on the viewer.
Since the film hit the theaters, fans have been speculating about the possibility of it hitting the Netflix library. So here’s the answer to that:
Will Sing 2 head to Netflix in the US?
Sing 2 originally was released in the theaters in December 2021. Since then fans have been speculating on whether it will come to Netflix or not. Though there has been no confirmation of any such matter, one can expect it to take place based on the animation studio’s history. As the previous works of Illumination have headed to the streaming platform, it’s most likely for Sing 2 to follow the footsteps of the rest.
When will Sing 2 release on Netflix?
The Secret Life of Pets 2 was the last Illumination movie to be released in theatres and was taken up by Netflix after around 200 days of its release for an eighteen-month time period. So, if Sing 2 follows the same timeline, it might be on the streaming platform by July 2022.
