The Barden Bellas reunite for one last farewell performance in the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 3, the latest comedy about Anna Kendrick’s a cappella crew.
The new film finds the Bellas hitting hard times post-college, with the singers unable to parlay their music skills into careers: Rebel Wilson’s Fat Amy is now a street performer called “Fat Amy Winehouse,” while other Bellas have become juice smoothie peddlers or farm animal veterinarians.
Down-and-out and desperate for the spotlight again, Kendrick’s Beca reunites all the singers from the previous two films for a USO showcase where the Bellas must face off with groups that play their own music and perform original songs.
“Oh, you guys just sing other people’s songs… like karaoke,” a competing band – led by Orange Is the New Black star Ruby Rose – tells the Bellas.
Pitch Perfect 3, the follow-up to 2015’s Pitch Perfect 2, is due out in December.
