Looking to replicate the massive success of the 2012 hit movie about singing, college and putting "aca" before every word, Universal has begun the work for [Pitch Perfect 2](movie:792597), which will see the return of quite a few familiar faces.
The most noticeable one, at least to me, is the inclusion of Elizabeth Banks, who played a minor role in the last film. Here, she will be starring and directing in place of Jason Moore.
Here is the first image from the film, which touts some "students" from the first film that should be graduated by now:
Acaexcuse me? While I'm the last person to complain about Brittany Snow doing anything, I find it a bit weird that so many characters are returning to this film, which is set to take place during Beca and Fat Amy's senior year.
Still, the most important thing is that both Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson are returning. Without them, I'm not so sure the first film would have gained as much traction as it did.
No worries, though, as some more big names are coming back, including Adam DeVine ("Workaholics") and even Katey Sagal ("Futurama").
