‘Pitch Perfect’ fans, here’s some less-than-aca-awesome news about the threequel

Bummer news for Pitch Perfect fans eager for another sequel: You”ll have to wait a bit longer for the next installment about the Barden Bellas.

Pitch Perfect 3 will now be your Christmas present in 2017: It”s slated for a December 22, 2017 opening. This change means you”ll have to wait an extra five months for the threequel: It was most recently scheduled for July 21, 2017, after already getting a couple release date changes between August and July of that year.

Moving into that July 21 spot is fellow Universal comedy Girl Trip.
