One of the under-the-radar successes of 2012 was the musical comedy “Pitch Perfect” (via BBC). The romantic comedy musical was released to mostly favourable reviews despite not receiving much advertising, and it grossed more than six times its budget (via Box Office Mojo).
It catapulted the Australian actor Rebel Wilson to the attention of audiences in North America and pushed a cappella music to the forefront of international attention. In addition to this, it was successful to the point where it spawned not one but two sequels, which were published in the years 2015 and 2017, respectively.
Beca (Anna Kendrick), Chloe (Brittany Snow), Aubrey (Anna Camp), and Fat Amy are the four primary vocalists in the collegiate a cappella group known as the Barden Bellas, which is the subject of the series (Wilson). Throughout the course of the series, they start out as the underdogs, then work their way into the national limelight, and finally find themselves back in the position of being reviled and looking for forgiveness. They perform a cappella renditions of a variety of top 40 tunes at various points along the road.
In the film “Pitch Perfect 3,” the core vocalists of the group get back together for a worldwide USO tour after they have all completed college. Unfortunately for them, nothing goes according to plan, and they are quickly taken hostage aboard a boat. Fans were left wanting more musical adventures once the story concluded; thus, they are probably wondering where the preparations for a sequel now stand.
Pitch Perfect 4: No Official Plans
Universal was left feeling let down by the performance of “Pitch Perfect 3.” It made $100 million less in ticket sales than its predecessor, which isn’t a total flop but probably still left a sour taste in the mouths of the creative team. It received the worst reviews of the three films on Rotten Tomatoes from fans and critics alike, and it received the worst reviews of the three films on Rotten Tomatoes (via The Numbers). Since the film’s premiere in 2017, there have been no announcements regarding future instalments in the film series.
When Rebel Wilson uploaded a photo on Instagram the following fall with colleagues “Pitch Perfect” performers Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, and Chrissie Fit each putting up four fingers, fans were ecstatic. Although Wilson later mentioned in an interview that the photo was taken at a cast reunion, which they’ve continued to do often in the ten years since first meeting, and that they would all love to make a fourth film in the series, the speculation regarding whether this was a cryptic hint at a sequel never materialised into anything concrete from the studio. However, the debate over whether this was a cryptic hint at a sequel never materialised into anything concrete from the studio (via Vanity Fair).
Snow has communicated that she is interested in playing the role again. She referred to the production of the films as a “no-brainer” while appearing on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in March 2022. Snow said, “I just adore carrying things out.” “I get to hang out with some of the people I care about the most, and we get to sing and dance together… Therefore, I really hope that there will be another opportunity so that we may spend more time together.”
Nevertheless, a variety of fascinating new developments concerning the series have been disclosed.
There Are Plans for a Pitch Perfect Stage Performance
Variety published an article in September 2021 stating that Peacock has placed an order for a “Pitch Perfect” series to air on its streaming service. It is intended that the programme would follow Adam Devine’s character Bumper Allen from the previous two movies as he relocates to Germany in order to pursue a career in music when one of his songs becomes successful in a particular region. Megan Amram is in charge of acting as the showrunner, while Adam Devine, along with Elizabeth Banks (who produced, appeared in, and directed the second of the three films), are serving with her as executive producers.
According to E!, it was announced in March 2022 that Sarah Hyland (who had previously worked with Devine on “Modern Family”), Lera Abova, and Jameela Jamil had been cast in the series. The series appears to be off to a good start, and E! also reported that Hyland was cast.
Additionally, it was revealed by the site that production on the series will start in the very near future. A debut in 2023 is a distinct possibility, despite the fact that no specific release date has been disclosed.
