Pitch Perfect has become of the unlikeliest (and therefore more welcome) Hollywood franchises in recent years. The series combines the college hijinks of something like Animal House with the competition of an underdog sports movie like The Bad News Bears, and throws in just a dash of Christopher Guest comedy. The first movie was a particular delight, and while the second film didn’t quite recapture the magic, I’m hoping the third film, Pitch Perfect 3, will wrap up the series with style.

I say wrap up the series because the newly unveiled poster for PP3 definitely suggests this is the last one. Just look at that tagline:


It is probably time to wind the Bellas down; they are getting older and this franchise was centered around college and singing competitions. Here’s the official synopsis for this installment:

Now graduated from college and out in the real world where it takes more than a cappella to get by, the Bellas return in Pitch Perfect 3, the next chapter in the beloved series that has taken in more than $400 million at the global box office. After the highs of winning the World Championships, the Bellas find themselves split apart and discovering there aren’t job prospects for making music with your mouth.  But when they get the chance to reunite for an overseas USO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.

The first Pitch Perfect 3 trailer drops tomorrow; the movie opens in theaters on December 22 just in time to make it an aca-mazing holiday season.
