There was a karaoke charm in the first “Sing”, a cartoon about an amateur parade – Ash the Porcupine (Scarlett Johansson), Rosita the Sow (Reese Witherspoon), Meena the Elephant (Tori Kelly) and Johnny the Gorilla (Taron Egerton) – who put on a show to save their small town’s bankrupt theater.

No more.

“Sing 2,” a gripping sequel from returning director Garth Jennings, opens with the cast attempting to impress a talent scout with the sort of ramshackle ditty that wowed fans of the original. But when the scout (Chelsea Peretti) sniffs that a bunch of rabbits yelling “Let’s Go Crazy” on electric guitars is just a “cute little show,” a Buster (the owner of the theater, played by Matthew McConaughey ) and his company set out to conquer Redshore City, the Las Vegas of the animal world. (We can sense that Illumination, the studio behind the franchise, is itself increasingly unhappy that the only golden little men on its shelves are the billion dollar Minions.)

The rest is all glitter and heartless. With money from a media mogul, Jimmy Crystal (Bobby Cannavale), and with a Suge Knight-esque wolf threatening his minions with defenestration, Buster stages a mega-musical show that intersects with Cirque du Sun with the old Pigs in Space sketch on “The Muppet Show.

There’s also a scattered plot that involves ziplines, arrogant choreographers, disgruntled construction workers, and a self-centered yak. At least the covers still have some pep. A Coldplay belt gorilla, a slug hits Drake and, in what passes for the emotional climax, Bono sings one of his own classics in the character of a reclusive rock star lion who, in this parallel universe, wrote the one of U2’s biggest hits.

Sing 2
Rated PG, for those who are afraid of the big bad wolf. Duration: 1 hour 52 minutes. In theaters.
