‘Pitch Perfect 3′ Is Officially Happening!
If you've been freaking out and counting down the days until Pitch Perfect 3 is released, then find some solace in this new casting and release date info!
Like many films when they hit the triolgy mark, actors tend to fall by the wayside and storylines falter. But not this time!
Anna Kendrick and Aussie favourite Rebel Wilson will both be back for round three, thanks to the aca-Gods! Elizabeth Banks is back in a producer role but we aren't 100% sure whether this means she will also feature in the cast credits.
With the sequel grossing $259 million in the bank already, why wouldn't you come back?!
All else will be revealed soon, but start marking off the days until July 21, 2017 now.
The aca-gods have spoken. #PitchPerfect3 is coming July 21, 2017!

When “Pitch Perfect 2” broke hella box office bank last month, you had to figure that Universal Pictures would want to bring the Barden Bellas back — and as of today, MTV News is thrilled to report that you were right, pitches!
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Kay Cannon, who wrote the first two films, is already on board for a “PP3.” However, no cast or director — this time around, Elizabeth Banks did both — has been revealed as of press time.
On that topic, THR also reports that Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson made $2 million each for “Pitch Perfect 2,” which cost $29 million to make — so if either of them were to come back, they’d cost a pretty penny. However, the popular assumption seems to be that Kendrick, who has blown up in Hollywood at this point, is done with the franchise… and the addition of Hailee Steinfeld as a new, freshman Bella definitely lent itself to that particular theory.
So who knows — no one is in just yet, but no one has slept with a Treble and gotten themselves kicked out, either. Our money would be on Wilson and Steinfeld returning and Kendrick leaving, with Banks and second-tier stars like Brittany Snow and Sklyar Astin as the wild cards.
And as for the plot of the film, well, just let the cast explain it to you:
- Shaunna Murphy
