After the highly successful release of Pitch Perfect 2, the gang has officially decided to get back together for Pitch Perfect 3! Universal announced it will premiere on July 21, 2017.
Even though the end of the second film saw the main cast graduating and preparing to move on, Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will return. According to Hollywood Reporter, Hailee Steinfeld already locked herself in for a follow-up when she signed on for Pitch Perfect 2. Elizabeth Banks will likely also return, although it’s unclear whether she will take another turn in the director’s chair.
Many in the cast excitedly tweeted when the news was announced yesterday:
