A few years back, a little movie called Pitch Perfect hit theaters. The enthusiasm going into the film wasn’t really all that huge, but once it hit, it seemed to catch on like wildfire. The little $17 million picture managed to gross $115 million worldwide, but things really seemed to take off for it when it hit its home release. Like many cult classics, much of its audience picked it up long after it had left theaters. A sequel for the film was inevitable.

In 2015, Pitch Perfect 2 was released, and while the film wasn’t considered as strong as the first one, it still managed to bring the songs and laughs that fans had loved for the first one. It managed to gross a whopping $287 million worldwide on its $29 million budget — a real surprise given its summer release. It was a big hit, and a bit of a pop culture sensation. Again, like the first one, we knew there would be a sequel to help cap the trilogy.

Now, Universal has released our first look at the film in the form of a poster and synopsis.

Check the return of the Bellas below:

“Now graduated from college and out in the real world where it takes more than a cappella to get by, the Bellas return in Pitch Perfect 3, the next chapter in the beloved series that has taken in more than $400 million at the global box office.
 
“After the highs of winning the World Championships, the Bellas find themselves split apart and discovering there aren’t job prospects for making music with your mouth.  But when they get the chance to reunite for an overseasUSO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.

“Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins all return and are joined by additions including John Lithgow and Ruby Rose.  Pitch Perfect 3 is again produced by Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Max Handelman & Elizabeth Banks of Brownstone Productions, and is directed by Trish Sie (Step Up All In).”
