Get ready, Pitches! The Barden Bellas are gearing up for the next round and fans have just been gifted with some of the best news ever. According to Variety, Brittany Snow's nearing a deal to join Pitch Perfect 3, to resume her role as Chloe. This follows the recent announcement that Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will return to the franchise as well.
Snow confirmed the news on her Twitter, writing, "My hair was never gunna stay blonde anyway. More songs with our mouths ;)" However, Variety reports that no director has signed onto the project. (Elizabeth Banks directed Pitch Perfect 2.) In any event, Pitch Perfect 3 will hit theaters on July 21, 2017.
We already know that the movie will be aca-awesome (because this trio never disappoints), but we have no idea what it will be about. Pitch Perfect 2 found the Barden Bellas competing in and winning the Worlds a capella tournament. Furthermore, they officially induct Emily Junk (Hailee Steinfeld) into the Bellas.
So what does this mean for Pitch Perfect 3? Considering that Steinfeld hasn't signed onto the project, there's no telling if the plot will involve her at all. She's gearing up to launch a music career, so it would totally make sense if that's the biggest focus in her career.
Considering the senior Bellas graduated, maybe it follows them in a post-Barden world. Anna Kendrick's character Beca Mitchell loves the music industry, so maybe she recruits the former Bellas to sing for a project? Or maybe the alumnae reunite to audition for a reality show and continue their mission of world domination. Of course, no Pitch Perfect movie can be without a climactic performance scene, so that would need to be worked in there as well. As much as I love the Bellas in their Barden bubble, I'm kind of excited to see how the movie works with them in the "real world."
No matter the plot line, we have two (yes, two!) excruciating years until the movie is released. In the meantime, I suggest re-watching the first two Pitch Perfect films on repeat.
