The Bellas are back and they’ve got their game faces on ready to fight for back-to-back acapella National championships. Luckily for all us Pitch Perfect fans, we only have one year to wait for the sequel to hit cinemas.
That’s right, it’s only 365 days till we can catch up with Beca, Jesse, Aubrey, Chloe, Benji, and, without a doubt my favourite, Fat Amy… well just under now. To remind us of this fact, Elizabeth Banks posted the following image to her Instagram account yesterday, with the caption “365 days till Pitch Perfect is released!!!”
We already know that Banks, Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Brittany Snow are all reprising their roles from the first film and that newcomer Hailee Steinfeld is joining the Barden Bellas, but the pic posted shows some additional familiar faces that look like their returning for a second outing. These are Alexis Knapp as the sex-crazed Stacie and Hana Mae Lee as Lilly, the weird whispering Bella who can beatbox with the best of them.
As well as starring and producing in the film again, Banks will make her directorial debut with Pitch Perfect 2, having taken over the helm from Jason Moore.
Pitch Perfect 2 opens in cinemas on both sides of the Atlantic on May 15, 2015.
