The news Pitch Perfect fans have been waiting for; yes, Jesse’s back! Sensational singer and all round nice guy Jesse, played by Skylar Astin has been confirmed for the upcoming sequel.
Production has officially started with Elizabeth Banks making her directorial debut as well as returning as producer and actress. Most of the main cast including Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow are also returning for the sequel, which shows great faith in the narrative. While no details regarding the narrative have been released, we can guarantee it will be just as crazy and chaotic as the 2012 original.
We are extremely excited Jesse is back because it felt like his character did not reach his full potential in the first film. The romance was pretty naive, so we hope that Banks can take it up a notch. They are seniors at university after all!
With newbies Hailee Steinfeld and Katey Sagal onboard, and screenwriter Kay Canon returning, Pitch Perfect 2 will be released in May 15 next year.
