The talented and comical ladies from the Barden Bellas are back and headed abroad.

Pitch Perfect 2 is coming to theatres on May 15.

The prequel to this film centers around Beca, played by Anna Kendrick, and her trials through her freshman year of college. Beca wants to go to LA to pursue her music career as a producer, but makes an agreement with her father to at least give college a try for one year.

In an attempt to please her her father, she joins an all female a cappella group, The Barden Bellas, and ends up finding a family of misfits.

Despite the ups and downs of this group of young women, they end up working very well together and win the national championship for the first time ever.

Joining Kendrick in Pitch Perfect 2 are stars Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Elizabeth Banks, Skylar Astin and Adam DeVine, just to name a few in this star studded cast.

In this film, instead of entering another collegiate a cappella competition in the United States,The Barden Bellas enter an a cappella competition abroad, which no American team has ever won.

From the preview of the film, viewers can expect some amazing singing and new renditions of popular songs from various genres, including pop, rap and even adding country to the list.

Pitch Perfect fan and senior at LHU, Lindsey Sommer, is anticipating the riff off scene and Fat Amy’s performance.

The preview also reveals that Sommer and other viewers won’t be disappointed. A small piece of the riff off scene was revealed and audiences can anticipate pure a cappella genius.

Previews showed that Wilson, who stars as Fat Amy, will be leading in the comedic role followed by Banks, Kendrick and DeVine.

Elizabeth Banks, who plays one of the a cappella commentators, is also the director of Pitch

Perfect 2. Banks has only directed two short films and a segment from Movie 43 so hopefully she will have some fresh new ideas that will live up to or even top the the direction of Jason Moore in Pitch Perfect.

Despite the change in directors, the writers, Kay Cannon and Mickey Rapkin, have returned to the Pitch Perfect 2 project. It is safe to assume that the humor and dialogue will be just as witty and funny as the first film.

Hopefully Pitch Perfect 2 will live up to the amazing music, acting and comedy of the first film.
