On April 11, 2015, a month before the release of the second film, it was announced that Rebel Wilson would return for a third film, although she stated that she did not know if Kendrick or any of the other cast members would also be reprising their roles. She added that she would be “up for a Fat Amy spin-off”, although nothing has been confirmed.
Director, star, and producer Elizabeth Banks acknowledged the possibility of a third film, saying, “I will say, it would be disingenuous to say that no one’s talking about a Pitch Perfect 3; the possibility of it. We are really focused on getting as many butts in seats for this one. If fans embrace it, we are going to seriously think about what the continuing journey would look like, but we don’t know what that is yet.
