“Pitch Perfect 2” dominated the theaters both in domestic and international releases. The sequel’s success was not really much of a surprise, though, after the first installment, “Pitch Perfect” became an unexpected hit among viewers. This makes fans of the musical comedy wonder if a “Pitch Perfect 3” movie would take place in the coming years. Anna Kendrick reveals her thoughts on reprising her role as Beca. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Fortune Magazine reported that “Pitch Perfect 2” dominated the box office following its release in May this year. The sequel debuted with $70.3 million in domestic screenings, which is nearly five times that of the first “Pitch Perfect” movie’s opening earnings in 2012. While it is a pretty known fact that if a sequel garners higher earnings and viewership, another sequel is almost out of the question.
The success of “Pitch Perfect 2” has led many fans to believe that a sequel is already in the works. What made fans even more excited was when Rebel Wilson, who plays Fat Amy,” revealed her thoughts on what she hopes to see in “Pitch Perfect 3.”
“All the Bellas are coming together becoming a legit singing group out of college. I also think a Fat Amy origins story would be awesome,” Wilson told The Hollywood Reporter.
While Wilson is pretty much positive on the future of the “Pitch Perfect” franchise, Anna Kendrick, who plays the lead role as Beca, does not want to think of a sequel at the moment and hopes to focus on “Pitch Perfect 2” before anything else.
“I’m not one to count my chickens, so I just want to see how this one does and find out if there’s an appetite for that before I even think about it,” Kendrick told Time Magazine.
While the producers and several cast members are still mum about the sequel to the latest installment, Taylor Swift has been rumored to star in “Pitch Perfect 3.” Skylar Astin and Anna Camp previously revealed that they wish to see the “Bad Blood” singer as a new member of the Barden Bellas and sing “Shake It Off” and “Blank Space” should a sequel takes place in the coming years.
