Animals Belatedly Create 'American Idol' in 'Sing' Trailer

Remember how, with Zootopia, Disney seemed to be acting like they'd just then invented the idea of animals behaving like humans? Well, they're never going to believe this, but it turns out someone else has made a movie about that. From Illumination Entertainment and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy director Garth Jennings, here's the trailer for Sing, an animated film about an animal singing competition. Just in time for interest in American Idol to have declined enough that it's going off the air!

The voice cast includes Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Seth MacFarlane, Nick Offerman, Nick Kroll, and Peter Serafinowicz, and Matthew McConaughey stars as the Simon Cowell-like koala that is for some reason not named Simon Koalell.

AND it's not even a seal singing Seal? This thing is really subverting expectations for terrible name-play.
