Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson confirmed for Pitch Perfect 3 and it gets a release date

Following the massive success of Pitch Perfect 2, it came as a small but no less welcome surprise when Universal Studios announced that there is going to be another film in the works soon.

For which we have just one word: aca-awesome.

The even better news is that the lovely Anna Kendrick (Becca) and fabulous Rebel Wilson (Fat Amy) are both on board.

Kendrick shared the news on Instagram:

And Rebel chimed in on Twitter, with her usual charm:

Elizabeth Banks will produce again, but no word yet on whether or not she will return as director. She also, of course, plays Gail in the first two films, the a capella judge who gets a lot of the good lines.

After the first film, which found a huge fan base, college a capella group the Barden Bellas have come back with a solid and enjoyable sequel that spent several weeks at the top of the UK box office. It has grossed $259.7 million at the worldwide box office so far, beating the $115.4 million taken for the first film.

The only bad news is that we have to wait a few years for Pitch Perfect 3; it’s not due for release until 21 July 2017.

In the meantime, you can still catch Pitch Perfect 2 at Cineworld now – click here to book your tickets – and once it’s out on DVD, we can all watch Pitch Perfect double bills until it’s time for the next one.

Excited about another chance to see the Barden Bellas? Do you also hope that we see a bit more of Jesse in the next movie? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook.
