This may be hard to believe, but it’s been almost nine years since the Barden Bellas were first introduced to fans on the big screen. That’s right, Pitch Perfect first hit theaters on September 28, 2012 before spawning two hilarious and upbeat sequels, and now, there’s a show on the way!
The musical movie followed a college freshman named Beca who’s invited to join the all-girls acapella group after it was discovered that she’s a talented singer. With her help, the Bellas eventually changed their traditional music sound and went on to compete in the National Championship for college acapella groups. The fan-favorite flick starred Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Ester Dean, Rebel Wilson, Hana Mae Lee, Skylar Astin, Adam DeVine and Ben Platt. Most of the stars even went on to appear in the movie’s two sequels Pitch Perfect 2 and Pitch Perfect 3.
When it come to the idea of a Pitch Perfect 4, Hailee Steinfeld (who starred in the sequels) is totally down. “Yeah. I mean, yeah!” she Entertainment Tonight in June 2020. “I remember distinctly watching that first movie in the theater and talking to my mom afterwards. I was like, ‘That’s the kind of movie I want to make.’ Everyone always asks me, ‘What’s the kind of movie you like to make?’ That one! That’s the one. And then when I heard there was a sequel I was like, ‘What can I do [to get in it].’ To be part of that, as a fan of the franchise was just so … I still can’t believe it.”
Similarly, rumors started swirling that former Disney Channel star Laura Marano was going to star in a possible Pitch Perfect 4. In June 2019, the actress set the record straight. “I’m not connected to — if there is a Pitch Perfect 4 right now,” she told PopCulture.com at the time. “I’m so down to have a Pitch Perfect 4 and to be in a Pitch Perfect 4! Right now, I’m not connected, it just made me laugh because I’ve had a bunch of fans ask.”
While the idea of another movie is still up in the air, let’s take a walk down memory lane and see what the cast has been up to since the film first hit theaters in 2012.
