This year will see a ton of different franchises return to the silver screen, but one of the most unique film series to make its way back to theaters in 2017 is Pitch Perfect. It may not feature superheroes, explosions, or bombastic action sequences, but the Pitch Perfect series has become one of the most reliable sources of entertainment over the course of the last few years. With the upcoming threequel set to debut in theaters this December, the Barden Bellas are now hard at work preparing to wow audiences once more. Check out the new Pitch Perfect 3 video below to see for yourself.
That video provides our first good look at the Barden Bellas since they last appeared on the silver screen, and we are so excited about what's on the horizon for the Pitch Perfect franchise. Although the video doesn't reveal any of the songs that the a capella group will sing during the third installment in the series, it highlights the amount of preparation and work that goes into their rehearsals. Beyond that, it also serves as a delightful reminder that these young women all share an excellent rapport and connection with one another. If they look like sisters on the silver screen, that's because they maintain a serious bond in real life.
Of course, eagle-eyed viewers of the Pitch Perfect franchise made sure to point out one very particular omission in the video. Alexis Knapp (who portrays Stacie Conrad) is nowhere to be found in that short video. Don't fret, Pitch Perfect aficionados; the fan-favorite character is still currently listed as a member of the film's cast -- she's just not present during this particular rehearsal session.
At this point, we still do not have much information regarding the actual plot of Pitch Perfect 3, as much of the film's marketing campaign has not even begun. We know that the movie will bring back nearly all of our favorite ladies, and Elizabeth Banks (despite stepping down as the film's director) is still definitely attached as an executive producer on the project. All things considered, this is shaping up as one of the most highly anticipated sequels of the year, and we cannot wait to see more from the endlessly talented Bellas
CinemaBlend will bring you any and all relevant details about the upcoming release of Pitch Perfect 3 as more information becomes available to us. The Barden Bellas will return on December 22, 2017.
