Pitch Perfect 2: Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson Are Officially Returning!
Good news, Pitch Perfect fans: Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are officially set to reprise their roles in the sequel, according to E! Online! And even better news: The film finally has a release date — May 15, 2015!
We had a feeling these two would be back. After all, awesome films that go for a sequel without the original cast are usually a fail (we’re looking at you, Mean Girls 2) and we’d hate to see something like that happen to a movie as amazing as Pitch Perfect was. Fingers crossed we’ll get to see more of Fat Amy’s horizontal running!
This news comes after Skylar Astin recently spoke out about the sequel — including a confirmation that he, too, will be returning, although he’s not sure in what capacity. “I think I’ll have a significant part of the sequel,” Skylar said. “I liked working with Anna and I think it bodes well for my character if the characters are together, at least involved.
And even more awesome: In case you hadn’t heard yet, Elizabeth Banks will be directing… and starring… and producing. Yay!
Now that we know most of the essential cast will be returning for sure, our expectations for the movie are pretty high. Don’t let us down, guys!
