Brace yourselves, at long last the Pitch Perfect 2 trailer is finally out and about. Has it really been 2 (3, by the time the film gets out) years since we were introduced to the Barden Bellas? Over the course of the first film we got to know the quirks and strengths of this rag-tag team of misfits. In that year lessons were learned, enemies became friends, and the nationals were totally dominated by the remixed and revamped aca-bitches. That was in the course of one year and one film. Can you imagine how much has changed for our girls since then?
Luckily the trailer gives us the very first inklings of what to expect. Click through to compare how the Barden Bellas have grown since then.

When Beca debuted on the scene she was borderline anti-social, headphones slung around her neck, and caked in dusty black eye make-up.
Our girl has seemingly learned how to happily be part of a group, and her fresh vision gained more than a few accolades along the way.
The remarkably uptight leader of the Bellas learned how to loosen her tie, make compromises, and suppress gag reflexes. Kind of.
It’s well-known that Aubrey’s since graduated from Barden University, but we’re still catching her occasionally hanging around the group, spraying it in a more hygienic way.
The group mediator had a true ear for talent, recruiting the Beca … you know, in the dorm showers and all.
Like Aubrey, it’s assumed that Chloe has graduated, but she’s somehow ALL OVER the trailer. There still may be some boundary issues
Fat Amy Then
A national treasure, forever spouting wisdom and exuding mermaid-like grace.

She tumbles down the stairs at one point in the trailer, so she’s still in possession of her trademark elegance. She also delivers some antagonistic/flirtatious vibes to douchelord Treblemaker Bumper. Will they finally kiss? Or are we still sticking by the meth philosophy?
Cynthia Rose Then
A bad ass (did you see how she jumped in during the riff-off with “S&M”?) and a lesbian (Fat Amy called it).

Though she’s a little hard to catch in the trailer, but she’s still there in the forefront, fighting the good fight.
I don’t know if the ombre is just throwing me off completely, but that’s her, right? I guessed because she says, “I will do whoever it takes in order to get us back to the top.” Double bless.
If you manage to hear any of her lines—they’re all delivered in a baby’s whisper—you realize that she’s the most batshit insane of the bunch. And subsequently hilarious.
Lilly’s still crazy, thank God.
