Sing 2's After Credits Scene Explained

Does animated sequel Sing 2 have an after credits scene? Here’s what happens during the credits and what it means for the future of the franchise.

Here’s what happens during Sing 2’s after-credits scene. Writer-director Garth Jennings teamed up with Universal Pictures and animation studio Illumination Entertainment to bring the first Sing movie to the big screen in 2016. The film is set in a city called Calatonia that’s populated by anthropomorphic animals and follows a koala bear named Buster Moon (Matthew McConaughey) as he tries to save his struggling theater by holding a singing competition which attracts contestants including pig Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), gorilla Johnny (Taron Egerton) and porcupine punk rocker Ash (Scarlett Johansson).

Sing was a big hit – earning glowing reviews and grossing more than $634 million worldwide – and was successful enough to spawn a sequel that was released in late 2021. Aptly titled Sing 2, the animated sequel featured Jennings at the helm once again and reassembled the all-star voice cast from the first movie while featuring a few new cast members – including Nine Perfect Strangers star Bobby Cannavale, singer Pharrell Williams and Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress Chelsea Peretti.

In Sing 2 Buster and his theater are thriving but the ambitious koala bear takes on a new challenge when he decides to put on a show in the Las Vegas-like Redshore City with the backing of lupine media mogul Jimmy Crystal (Cannavale), who insists he will only stump up the funds if Buster can coax reclusive rock star lion Clay Calloway (U2 frontman Bono, who was almost in Batman Forever) out of retirement to perform at the musical revue. Despite quite a few setbacks Buster and the troupe he assembled in the first Sing movie put on a successful show and the movie has a happy ending, but what happens in the Sing 2 after-credits scene? Well, technically Sing 2 doesn’t have an after-credits scene but it does have an animated sequence that plays out over the first part of the movie’s end credits.

This sequence features various minor characters dancing across the screen, including the troupe of roller-skating flamingos that audition for Crystal at the start of the movie and the group of tap-dancing tarsier janitors (voiced by Moonrise Kingdom director Wes Anderson) that Buster recruits to be in his show. It also features Sing 2 characters like Buster’s elderly iguana assistant Miss Crawly (voiced by director Garth Jennings) sweeping up and losing her glass eye in the process.

After-credits scenes are often used to set up a sequel, but that’s not the case with Sing 2. However, Sing 2 not having an after-credits scene doesn’t necessarily mean it won’t get a sequel. As of writing, neither Universal Pictures nor Illumination Entertainment has confirmed that Sing 3 is happening, but several Sing 2 voice actors have expressed interest in making a third film. Judging by that – and the success of the franchise so far – a sequel to Sing 2 could well be on its way to theaters in the not-too-distant future.
