When the 2016 animated picture Sing was released, it was an instant hit. The endearing characters, catchy tunes, and upbeat messages resonated with people, especially during a period of history when things were beginning to seem bleak.
Mike the Mouse (Seth MacFarlane) became an instant fan favourite among all the characters in the picture, and there were many. Sure, he was conceited and avaricious, but that was part of his appeal, as were his wit, his style, and his lofty ambitions.
The announcement of a Sing sequel came as no surprise, considering the original film grossed over $634 million thanks to its music and star-studded ensemble. Fans were naturally curious about the fate of the mouse that stole the show with Frank Sinatra's “My Way.”
Who is Mike from “Sing?”
Mike is a street musician mouse voiced by Seth MacFarlane who only appears in Sing. He desired wealth, fame, and women throughout his life. He was conceited and hungry and made no attempt to conceal the fact that he believed he was superior to everyone else. Before the singing competition, he purchased a showy car because he believed he would win the prize money and become wealthy.
However, as a musician, Mike possessed the necessary skills and talent. He primarily sang jazz songs, such as “My Way” by Frank Sinatra. Mike had white fur and was typically seen wearing a red suit, red fedora, black tie, and black shoes.
What Happened to Mike from Sing 2?
According to others, Mike the Mouse's absence from Sing 2 was caused by his gambling tendencies. It is rumoured that he became too involved with the Bears' gambling and lost everything, including his money, home, and even his cherished fedora. Others assert that he simply did not fit into the sequel's plot. Some have even asserted that he was devoured by bears, which we believe is a bit excessive.
Fans were sad that such a memorable figure was absent from the film for whatever reason. Do we know the exact reason why he was overlooked?
Evidently, Mike, the Mouse's absence has never been addressed formally. Neither by writer and director Garth Jennings nor by Seth MacFarlane. We may never know for sure what happened, but we may be able to console ourselves with fan theories.
On the official discussion page for Sing 2, Reddit user RiffRafe2 claimed to have attended a Q&A in which Garth Jennings stated that, despite loving Seth McFarlane's singing and performance, he had just grown tired of the character, which is why he wasn't included in the sequel. RiffRafe2 also mentioned that if there was a third instalment of Sing, Jennings would consider bringing back Mike.
Now, do not raise our expectations. Since the release of the sequel, there have been rumours about the third instalment of Sing. There is yet no formal statement on the situation. We Got This Covered and will keep you informed if and when the situation changes. Let's only hope that Mike is involved.
Did The Mouse From Sing Die?
Yes, Mike was devoured by a bear at the conclusion of Sing 2 Mike, the film's protagonist is a white anthropomorphic mouse. He is wearing a red suit over a white shirt, red slacks, a red fedora, a black tie, and red boots. He has a long moustache and enormous, pink-lined white ears.
It possesses a long, pink tail. In addition, during rehearsals for Let's Face The Music And Dance, he wears the purple variant of his outfit. In addition, he wears the same outfit for the last performance of My Way.
In a Christmas-themed television commercial, Mike wore a green suit with red lapels and a Santa hat with a red tie. Mike is also a stingy, self-centred mouse with a Napoleonic manner problem, as well as a supposedly Lincoln School of Music-educated jazz musician with a Frank Sinatra-like singer.
