The Bellas are back once again for a third and final installment of everyone’s favorite aca-franchise. Pitch Perfect 3follows the a capella group we first met on screen in the 2012 original, based on a nonfiction book by Mickey Rapkin. Now, following the events of 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2, the ladies are college graduates and attempting to make it in the world with more than just their talent for singing sans instrumentation.
All of the Bellas have returned for the second sequel of the series, which has already grossed more than $400 million worldwide and maintained primarily positive reviews (the original’s Rotten Tomatoes score: 80%; the first sequel’s score: 66%). Our favorite a capella commentators are also back, as you can see in the new trailer below. But this is just a tease of the latest shenanigans of and tunes performed by the Barden U. alumns. For more, you’ll have to wait until this Christmas.

“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 overseas USO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.”
American actor John Lithgow, who wasn’t familiar with the PItch Perfect series before being cast, plays the father of Fat Amy (Wilson) and so had to quickly perfect an Australian accent.
