Aca-wait a little longer. On Tuesday, Universal Pictures announced that Pitch Perfect 3 will now arrive in theaters on Aug. 4, 2017, two weeks after its initial release date of July 21, 2017.
The sequel to Pitch Perfect 2 was set to go against Christopher Nolan’s mysterious new film, which Warner Bros. will release on July 21, 2017. The shift also moves Pitch Perfect 3 past Sony’s new Spider-man film with Tom Holland in the lead role (that project is set to arrive on July 28, 2017).
“We are hard at work on figuring out what the next chapter for the Barden Bellas is going to be,” Pitch Perfect 2 director and franchise producer Elizabeth Banks recently told EW. “They’re gonna sing, they’re gonna dance, and they’re gonna be funny … I don’t want to give anything away!”
No director has been set for Pitch Perfect 3, but stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson will reprise their roles for the new film.
