See Matthew McConaughey, Taron Egerton and the rest of the Sing cast with their characters

Illumination Entertainment's Sing promises to show off the performing talents of a diverse cast that includes Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club), Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Reese Witherspoon (Wild), Scarlett Johansson (Lucy) and more. The company have recently released a new set of images showing the actors with their various animal characters.

Sing finds McConaughey as Buster Moon, the dapper koala impresario who oversees a theatre that was once a grand entertainment venue, but is now falling on hard times, with peeling paint and dodgy plumbing. In a final attempt to restore the venue to its former glory, he decides to stage the world's greatest singing challenge, throwing the doors open to members of the public who think they have what it takes.

Five main contenders emerge – a mouse (Seth McFarlane) who is a crook with a smooth voice, a teenage elephant (Tori Kelly), a busy mother sow (Witherspoon), who juggles the demands of her 25 piglets with her singing ambitions, a young, tough gorilla (Egerton) and a punk rock porcupine with the proven pipes of Johansson and a posing pig named Gunther (Nick Kroll). But who will win?

Son Of Rambow's (2007) Garth Jennings writes, directs and corrals the talent for this one, which also includes John C. Reilly (Carnage), Nick Offerman (Parks And Recreation), Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians Of The Galaxy) and Jennifer Saunders (Coraline).

Sing is set to arrive in the UK on 27 January.
