“Yes. As of now, the Trebles and I won’t be in the third Pitch Perfect movie,” tweeted (complete with waving emoji!) Astin on the fate of the franchise regulars. “They seem to be taking the story in a different direction.”
The exit of the Trebles from the next film is bound to have an interesting dynamic of the Pitch Perfect saga, although we have a suspicion that Adam Devine might pop by anyway because his character is custom-built for a cameo or six.
A “different direction” does seem like a natural place for the Bellas (post-Bellas?) who will presumably be leaving campus for new adventures that will also facilitate musical numbers and aca-speak. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Anna Camp are all coming back for the third Pitch motion picture, and it will be with Step Up: All In helmer Trish Sie serving as director for this go-around. Aside from that, details have been in short supply of what to expect. A release date that’s been moved around on multiple occasions may suggest the studio isn’t sure either.
Provided there won’t be another change to the schedule, Pitch Perfect 3 will serenade filmgoers on December 22, 2017.
