Pitch Perfect 3 is everything we’ve been dreaming of since the Barden Bellas (including the ace Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson) returned to the big screen this year in a kick ass sequel to the 2012 smash hit, and now its been confirmed that Universal Pictures and Gold Circle have plans in motion for a third installment of the aca-awesome movies.
As we brace ourselves for more a cappella antics, due to hit screens in July 2017, we’ve decided to keep ourselves busy by compiling a list of the things we’re looking forward to most. Don’t say we’re not productive…
1. Anna’s Big Announcement
In the most exciting news since, well, possibly anything, Anna Kendrick has announced that a role in the new film is up for grabs. This is not a drill. If you haven’t got Dubsmash, we suggest you download it immediately, because it could be your one-way ticket to the Big Screen. All you have to do is download the app and lip-sync along to one of the soundbites available from Pitch Perfect 2. Then, you’ll need to upload your ten second video to social media; Vine, Instagram or Twitter and tag #PitchSmash. All submissions must be in by 17th September, and the winne is set to be announced on Good Morning America on 22nd September. Good luck, Bellas.
2. New Faces
Now the original Bellas have graduated and headed out into a grown up accapella-less world, we have high hopes for newcomer Emily (Hailee Steinfield). After her pitchin’ performance this year we can defo see her heading up the Bellas in the riff-offs to come.
3. Old Faces
Girl crush Elizabeth Banks made her directorial debut for Pitch Perfect 2 as well as reprising her role as witty competition commentator Gail. There’s no word on whether she’ll be back in the director’s chair but we hope she’s on board!
Aca-people getting mixed up in aca-poilitics and putting aca in front of everything. Pitch Perfect just wouldn’t be the same without its a cappella puns, and we can’t wait to see all the hilarity that writer Kay Cannon has up her sleeve this time!
5. A Kick-Ass Wardrobe
The Bellas’ on stage wardrobe got a huge transformation in Pitch Perfect 2. From clean-cut waistcoats to sequined corsets, the third film is sure to channel the same OTT fashion. We’re just waiting for a rip-away trouser moment, Bananarama-style.
6. Another Epic Riff-Off
One of our favourite scenes in the PP movies are the riff-off.! In films one and two, the Bellas are yet to win but we reckon they’ll slay in the next movie!
7. A Cappella Rivalry
With Barden’s a cappella boy group and German International Champions, Das Sound Machine already causing ‘treble’ (geddit?), the pitches are sure to be faced with more aca-rivals in the third film. With a new lead woman and killer soundtrack, we’ve no doubt the Bellas will kick ass.
