Dec. 13 (UPI) -- Pitch Perfect 3 star Anna Kendrick says filming the sequel was an "emotional" experience.

The 32-year-old actress, who plays Beca Mitchell in the series, discussed the third and final installment with Entertainment Tonight at the movie's Los Angeles premiere Tuesday.

"When we were wrapping, I sent [Brittany Snow] a note that was like, 'I'll always be the rain cloud to your sunshine,'" she recalled on the red carpet. "I was getting really emotional, way more emotional than I normally do as a rain cloud."

Rebel Wilson, who portrays Fat Amy, said in an interview with People that filming the third movie was her best experience with the franchise.

"It was hilarious," the 37-year-old star said before explaining, "The second we felt a huge amount of pressure, and the third one we're like, 'You know what guys? Let's just have fun.'"

"We hope people like it," she added. "We tried to do a movie that was different enough but still had a lot of the same things that people love about the Pitch Perfect movies."

The original Pitch Perfect opened in 2012 and was followed by Pitch Perfect 2 in 2015. The third installment will follow Beca, Fat Amy and the rest of the Bellas as they perform a final time on a USO tour.

Pitch Perfect 3 co-stars Hailee Steinfeld, Anna Camp, Hana Mae Lee, Ruby Rose and Elizabeth Banks. The movie opens in theaters Dec. 22.
