Following on from yesterday’s poster reveal, Universal Pictures has now released the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2, the upcoming sequel to 2012’s sleeper hit, opening in theaters on May 15, 2015.

Lots of people think the college a capella group comedy Pitch Perfect is the funniest Hollywood comedy since Mean Girls (2004). Well, I think it’s the hyper-talented female-driven flick which looks like Glee meets Bridesmaids meets Bring It On.

The returning cast we were hoping for–Anna Kendrick as Beca Mitchell, Rebel Wilson as “Fat Amy”, Adam DeVine as the leader of the Treblemakers– are joined by a handful of newcomers led by Hailee Steinfeld. The film also stars Brittany Snow, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean, Hana Mae Lee, John Michael Higgins, and Katey Segal.

Moreover, Elizabeth Banks is back in front of and behind the camera as actress/producer-turned-first time feature director. Writer Kay Cannon also returns for the second installment, having previously adapted the non-fiction book by Mickey Rapin.

We don’t have details on the plot currently, but the rumor is that (SPOILER ALERT):

The Barden Bellas have split up, though apparently that’s temporary. In the sequel Fat Amy (Wilson) and Beca (Kendrick) and the former Bellas are now seniors at Barden University and are preparing to enter the real world and that means Beca as an intern at a record label.

With any luck, no vomiting onstage during a song as they did in the first one. Check out the first trailer for yourself.
