Bono, Halsey, Pharrell, Bobby Cannavale, Letitia Wright, Eric Andre and Chelsea Peretti will be lending their vocal talents to “Sing 2.”

The trio joins a voice cast that already includes returning stars Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly and Nick Kroll.

In “Sing 2,” the followup to Illumination’s 2016 film “Sing,” Buster Moon (McConaughey) 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. To do that, though, they’ll first have to impress the powerful and egotistical entertainment mogul–and likely gangster–wolf Jimmy CBobby Cannavale)- and prove that they are worthy of his stage. Crystal agrees to give them their chance on one condition: Buster and his crew will have to coax the world’s most reclusive rock legend, lion Clay Calloway (Bono, in his animated film debut), out of self-imposed seclusion after the death of his wife and persuade him to perform in the show. As the characters each face obstacles on their journey to opening night, their shared joy in the music and their unflagging optimism are a reminder that anything is possible when everyone works as a team toward a shared dream.
