ppit Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson Officially Back for Pitch Perfect 2—and Find Out the Release Date!

The two key Bellas are back!

Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are officially returning for Pitch Perfect 2, the planned sequel to the surprise 2012 blockbuster about the fierce ‘n’ funny world of collegiate a cappella competition.

Elizabeth Banks, who also played a judge on the a cappella circuit in the original, has already signed on to direct.

Kendrick has yet to weigh in with an inevitably hilarious tweet, but Wilson did retweet @PitchPerfect’s happy announcement that Fat Amy and Beca were tuning up for an encore.

Universal Pictures and Gold Circle Films have also set a release date of May 15, 2015.

Surely some catchy new music is in the works as well. Pitch Perfect’s soundtrack, which included Kendrick’s cover of “Cups,” sold more than 1 million copies.

We’ll be hearing Kendrick sing first, however, in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, in which she plays Cinderella opposited Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Christine Baranski. The big-budget musical is due out Christmas Day. {eonline.com}
