After releasing the teaser trailer, the makers have finally launched the official trailer of the Pitch Perfect 3. And the newly launched trailer has opened up a whole bottle of speculations with it, primary of which hints at the end of the trilogy for this musical comedy franchise.
The official trailer shows that post-graduation, the Bellas have gone their separate ways, with all of them struggling with their careers. A reunion at a bar leads to the group deciding to enter a USO competition in Europe. But the catch is that this time they are not just competing against a cappella groups, but with “bands that actually have instruments,” as lead character Beca Mitchell notes.
Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, and the rest of the Barden Bellas are returning this December to take on a rock group headlined by Ruby Rose in the third and possibly final installment of the movie. So, this might be the ‘Farewell Tour’ for the girls this time, as per The Hollywood Reporter.
The trailer of Pitch Perfect 3 further shows that Anna Camp will have a bigger role this time. However, the thing missing from the trailer is the men from the first two installments. Treblemakers were nowhere to be seen, nor where Ben Platt and Skylar Astin.
Elizabeth Banks, director of the second installment of the movie, and who has been starring since the first movie, will also return as Gail Abernathy-McKadden-Feinberger this year. However, this time, the film has been directed by Trish Sie, who is known for directing the 2014 film Step Up: All In. DJ Khaled, John Lithgow, and Trinidad James will also be making appearances in the new film.
The official Pitch Perfect 3 poster, which was released one day before the trailer, furthers the speculation of the film being the last installment in the franchise. The poster which shows the members of the Barden Bellas reads “Last Call Pitches.”
A couple of days ago, a behind-the-scene teaser was released which showed the a cappella group going on a global tour. It featured scenes from the movies, insight from the directors and the actors and the wrap up of filming.
Pitch Perfect 3, written by Kay Cannon and distributed by Universal Pictures, hits the screens on December 22, 2017.
