Hero Overview


Norman, would you please tell them what a good singer I am?
~ Rosita to her husband

Rosita is an anthropomorphic pig and aspiring singer. She is a main protagonist of Illumination's seventh feature 2016 film Sing and a supporting character in "Gunter Babysits", a short included on the home media release.

She is voiced by Academy Award-winner Reese Witherspoon, who also portrayed Elle Woods in the Legally Blonde films, Vanessa Lutz in Freeway, Annette Hargrove in Cruel Intentions, and Officer Rose Cooper in Hot Pursuit. Witherspoon also voiced Ginormica in the Monsters vs. Aliens franchise. In the Japanese dub from the movie, she is voiced by Maaya Sakamoto, who also voiced Akito Sohma in Fruits Basket 2019, Fawn, in Tinker Bell franchise, and Elina in Barbie: Mermaidia.

Appearance

Rosita has peach-pink skin with darker pink freckles on her face. She also has slightly floppy ears, green eyes, and three pointed fingers on each hand. Usually, Rosita wears a pink, short-sleeved blouse with buttons, dark-blue pants, and black slippers. During her and Gunter's performance of "Shake It Off", Rosita changes into a sparkly black leotard with pointed ears and a long feather train on the back. She also wears black heels with this costume.

Personality

Rosita is a devoted wife to her husband Norman and loving mother to 25 piglets. Despite her genuine love for her family, Rosita feels overwhelmed with her responsibilities and longs to be more than a stay-at-home mother. This in combination with her deep passion for singing, causes Rosita to join Buster Moon's singing competition without her family's knowledge.

Rosita's motherly compassion extends to her fellow contestants. When Ash has a breakdown during rehearsal over her breakup with Lance, Rosita comforts the porcupine and allows her to have any gum or candy she finds in her purse. Rosita also allows Johnny to practice before her, and apologizes when Gunter prevents the gorilla from doing so. She even was friendly towrds Mike and showed happiness for him when he sang "My Way" even smiling in joy.

Biography

Sing

Rosita is introduced doing kitchen chores and singing "Firework" while her children eat breakfast at the table. One rowdy piglet mockingly imitates her, leading her to ask Norman to tell them what a great singer she is. Norman, in a hurry to get to work, distractedly tells Rosita she's great and that the bathroom sink is blocked again. Rosita looks out the kitchen window at the family's hanging clothes, feeling stuck in a rut.

That night, flyers advertising Buster Moon's singing competition are scattered across town, one hitting Rosita and Norman's kitchen window as she's washing the dishes. The next day, Rosita sends her children off to school, and makes the decision to audition at the Moon Theater. She ultimately passes the audition due to her excellent voice, but Buster found her stage presence boring, and decides to compensate by pairing her with flamboyant pig Gunter. To manage her husband's and kids' needs while she's at the theater, Rosita constructs an elaborate Rube-Goldberg device to perform her usual housework.

During practice with Gunter, Rosita becomes discouraged by her inability to dance as well as him, despite following printed instructions. After falling on her face during a performance of "Shake It Off", Rosita gives up and leaves the Moon Theater, to Gunter's disappointment. While grocery shopping, Rosita hears "Bamboléo" playing over the intercom and spontaneously bursts into dance. A security guard watching applauds Rosita, giving her the confidence to return to rehearsals. However, during a special rehearsal for Nana Noodleman, three bears who were cheated out of money by contestant Mike trespass the theater; the resulting confrontation begins a chain of events that destroys the building. Meanwhile, Rosita's device malfunctions, stranding Norman and the children on the clothesline for most of the day. Despite these disasters, Rosita is overjoyed when Buster decides that the show must go on, and helps build a stage in the ruins of the Moon Theater.

Rosita and Gunter serve as the opening act to Buster's open air concert, while Norman and the piglets sit in the audience. The two pigs perform "Shake It Off", their singing and choreography amazing the crowd. At the end of the song, the Rosita and Norman's children rush onstage to congratulate their mother. Norman himself follows behind and gives his wife a passionate kiss as the curtain closes. At the end of the movie, Rosita and her family attend the grand opening of the New Moon Theater with the other performers.

Bye, Iggy, bye, Perry, bye, Carla, bye, Gail, bye, Rory, bye, Micky, bye, Moe, bye, Nelson, bye, Hannah, bye, Tess, bye-bye, Caspar. Phew!
~ Rosita sending her piglets to school
Um, hi, I saw your ad in the paper. Yes, I need a nanny, just for a couple of weeks. You can? Great! The kids? Yes, they're wonderful. Yeah, I have 25. No, I'm not joking. Um, but they're really no problem-- Hello? Hello?
~ Rosita failing to hire a nanny over the phone
Listen, Norman, I know it's short notice, but I could really use some help with the kids tomorrow because, well, you are not going to believe what I did today! Norman, are you listening to me?
~ Rosita trying to tell Norman about the singing completion and to ask for help with their children
I think we'll probably have a better chance of winning if I do the singing part and leave the dancing part to you.
~ Rosita to Gunter
Okay, here. There should be some gum or some candy in there somewhere. Just help yourself.
~ Rosita offering a heartbroken Ash the contents of her purse
My body parts are not responding, okay? It's never gonna happen. I should just be getting groceries.
~ Rosita telling Gunter she's quitting the competition
You ready, big guy?
~ Rosita to Gunter while getting ready to perform "Shake It Off"
