sing 2, which will hit theaters in late 2021, should hit Netflix in the summer of 2022 (at least in the US). Here’s a look at why Sing 2 should go to Netflix and when we expect it to drop.
Written and directed by Garth Jennings, the film saw the return of the lovable characters from the first film and now sees Buster and his new cast set their sights on debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City.
The voice cast in the sequel included Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane and Scarlett Johansson.
The film defied all expectations and went on to gross over $400 million at the box office despite low theater ratings.
Is the film now coming out of theaters, to Netflix?
When will Sing 2 be on Netflix in the United States?
Decider predicted last year that the film will likely head to Peacock, but we understand, at least in the United States, that the film will hit Netflix this summer.
The last Illumination movie to even hit theaters was in June 2019 with The Secret Life of Pets 2† That film came to Netflix later that year on December 27, 2019. The time between the theatrical release and the Netflix release is 204 days. We need this so much.
After that, it stayed on Netflix for 18 months, which is the full pay-1 window.
So, based on the fact that Netflix had the Illumination contract in recent years, we expect Sing 2 to get on Netflix.
Assuming we’re right about the licensing (we have no evidence to suggest otherwise), we expect the film to hit Netflix in July 2022. If we assume it takes 204 days, it will be on July 14, 2022.
Shall Sing 2 international on Netflix?
Outside of the US, licenses are granted by country.
For example, Netflix in the UK usually receives new Illumination movies about 2 years after their theater debut. For The Secret Life of Pets 2 that meant the film was added in May 2021.
If you can’t wait for his Netflix or Peacock debut, your best bet is to grab him on video-on-demand services where he’s been available since January 2022. That means Netflix will likely receive the film in the UK by the end of 2023.
Based on availability of The Secret Life of Pets 2 now Netflix in Latin America and Canada will also receive the film in a few years.
As a reminder, all Illumination movies released from 2022 onwards will also be coming to Netflix. That means that the Mario movie, Terrible not 4and Minions: The Rise of Gru will all go to Netflix.
