LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20 (UPI) -- Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow reprise their roles as Becca, Fat Amy and Chloe in the first trailer for the upcoming film Pitch Perfect 2.
The nearly two-and-half minute clip was released on The Ellen Show's Vevo account Thursday and follows the Bellas as they enlist a whole new group of singers as they get ready to attend the a cappella world championship.
But, like Elizabeth Banks' character says in the film, theres a catch, "no American team has ever won." Banks, who also co-starred in the 2012 film Pitch Perfect, made her directorial debut on the sequel.
The video also features a new, group rendition of Lulu and The Lampshades' track "Cups," which reached No. 2 on Billboard's Adult Pop Song chart after Kendrick performed it in the first movie.
The trailer's releases comes one day after the Pitch Perfect Twitter account revealed the first poster for the upcoming film under the tagline, "We're Back Pitches." The musical comedy opens in theaters in May 2015.
