It’s not about the money (money, money), it’s about bringing the world more choral harmonies and glee club dance moves. Duh. Rejoice, all you Pitch Perfect fiends: Universal announced at CinemaCon in Las Vegas that Pitch Perfect 2 is a very real thing.
The sequel announcement couldn’t have come at a more opportune moment (and you can bet that’s just the way they planned it): Rebel Wilson just hosted the MTV Movie Awards where she and her Pitch Perfect pals delivered a highly anticipated reunion onstage. Then, the director’s cut of Anna Kendrick’s “Cups” video (below) hit the Web this morning. And we all thought it was arbitrary. Nope: marketing genius at work, folks.
The head of Universal also added that the original writer Kay Cannon will be returning, so you can expect the same chuckle-worthy lines from Wilson and the same snarky quips from Kendrick. Of course, the minds at Hollywood.com are so ahead of the curve, that we already picked the brains of the entire cast for their sequel ideas before the original Pitch Perfect even hit theaters. You’re welcome.
