Pitch Perfect 2

“Pitch Perfect 2” Trailer Takes the Stage

If you didn’t see the 2012 sleeper musical comedy hit Pitch Perfect, fix that. It was a very smart, funny, clever, principally-female-cast, refreshing movie with knock out performances and plenty of les yay.

Now the breakout acapella troupe the Barden Bellas are back and taking it to the next level with the World Championship of Acapella. All of the original cast appears to be back for musical comradery, puns, callbacks and awkward hijinks.

Some welcome new faces can also be seen in the trailer, including Hailee Steinfeld, who appeared in the Ender’s Game and True Grit movies. It seems like she’ll be a freshman member of the bellas while the returning cast, including Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Alexis Knapp, Rebel Wilson and Hana Mae Lee will be seniors.

Elizabeth Banks is returning to direct and has every intention of making the sequel just as special as the original; “It’s a big responsibility, but I was really excited to take it on and try to do it confidently,” Banks told ABC News of directing the movie. “[The original] was lightning in a bottle and it was such a surprise to see how the movie was received. The whole ‘Cups’ phenomenon was a surprise to all of us. It came from the authenticity of the movie, and this time around we were really aiming to do that again and be pure in our intention to tell more of the story of these characters that people have fallen in love with.”
