Praise is high for the third instalment of the successful film franchise Pitch Perfect.
The third glimpse into the life of Beca, Fat Amy, Emily, Chloe, Aubrey, and the rest of the Bellas follows the a capella group postcolleg. After their win at the world championship, the now separated Bellas reunite for one last singing competition at an overseas USO tour, but face a group who uses both instruments and voices.
Not only is the third instalment of the successful film franchise highly entertaining – but also highly unusual for Hollywood.
Seeing an all-female ensemble cast in a storyline where the main objective isn’t finding a boyfriend is something you don’t often see.
Which is perhaps why the movies have become so popular.
“I distinctly remember seeing the first one in the cinema and just feeling so great afterwards,” says Hailee Steinfeld, who joined the cast in Pitch Perfect 2 and reprises her role in the third.
“I loved every minute of it, loved the musical aspect, I thought the relationships within the movie were so interesting and fun. I remember thinking if there’s ever a movie like this I have to be a part of it.”
