The movie that made Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson stars (at least temporarily for Wilson) and resurrected the career of Brittany Snow is returning. The original word-of-mouth hit, which made $65 million on a $17 million budget but then really took off on DVD and streaming is now a big enough “franchise” to warrant a summer release. Pitch Perfect 2 comes out on May 15th, 2015, and they’re bringing along Katey Sagal and Hailee Steinfeld this time around. Elizabeth Banks also moves from competition judge to the film’s director (she’ll also star in the movie).
Here’s the first poster (and more importantly, the movie poster signals the imminent arrival of a trailer, which will arrive later today):
Oh, and they’re on the cover of EW this week, too.
The sequel will follow Fat Amy and Beca through their senior year at Barden University.
