From the maker of Minions and the director of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, here comes an animated film in which animals of all shapes and sizes compete in a singing competition like American Idol. Ladies and gentleman, here’s a new trailer for Sing.

Sing will be released December 21 and has, potentially, one of the best voice casts ever: there’s Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, and Scarlett Johansson, just to name a few. You can hear them all in this unabashedly over-the-top trailer which lays out the basic premise.

There’s definitely a line here between fun and clever and “bad karaoke room on a Tuesday night.” This trailer alone is filled with so, so many covers that it’s hard to imagine they’ll feel fresh in the film. Then again, this is director Garth Jennings, who has made two movies, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Son of Rambow, both of which have their own fans. You’d like to believe he wouldn’t spend years of his life on something that doesn’t come together in an exciting way.
