The animated film is heading to Blu-ray and Ultra HD Blu-ray next month.
As previously reported, Universal is preparing 'Sing' for Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and Ultra HD Blu-ray, and now the date has been set for March 21. In addition, a Best Buy Exclusive Ultra HD Blu-ray Steelbook will also be available.
Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Illumination Entertainment's Sing stars Buster Moon (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), a dapper koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times. Buster is an eternal—some might even say delusional—optimist who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it. Now faced with the crumbling of his life's ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world's greatest singing competition.
