The gang is back!

The first trailer for Sing 2, a sequel to the blockbuster 2016 animated movie, dropped on Thursday, with the star-studded cast back voicing the beloved characters.

The sequel finds Matthew McConaughey's Buster trying to get his New Moon Theater group a big show. When Nick Kroll's Gunter says he can get rock legend Clay Calloway - a recluse who hasn't been seen in years - to sign on, the gang has to find a way to convince him to sing again in order to save their show.

In a star-studded twist, the trailer reveals Clay is voiced by real-life rock legend Bono!

The movie also stars Reese Witherspoon as Rosita, Scarlett Johansson as Ash, Taron Egerton as Johnny, Tori Kelly as Meena and Halsey and Bobby Cannavale as Porsha and Jimmy Crystal.

Pharrell Williams, Letitia Wright and comedians Eric Andre and Chelsea Peretti also join the cast for the second go-around.
