Aca-awesome! The Bellas head to the world championships in 'Pitch Perfect 2' trailer

By JENNY DEPPER

The Barden University Bellas don't ever back down from a little competition!

The first trailer for "Pitch Perfect 2" is finally here and it looks like our favorite a capella group is back in action and taking their talents to the world stage ... literally.

After winning nationals, the gals are taking on the world championships. Naturally, their rivals the Barden Treblemakers (played by original actors Skylar Astin, Adam DeVine, and Ben Platt), are also headed to the global sing-off, adding to the drama.


The trailer shows the Bellas prepping for their big performance with sleepovers, pillow fights, and secret dance-offs in addition to warming up their vocal chords.

Favorites Brittany Snow, Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Rebel Wilson and the rest of the crew returned for the follow-up to the 2012 classic "Pitch Perfect," which hit a high note with audiences for their hilarious portrayal of collegiate a capella competitions.

Elizabeth Banks, who also stars in the flick, helms the sequel and it looks like it's going to be just as successful as the first film, which earned $113 million in the global box office.

In an interview with AOL, Banks promised the same slapstick comedy and great song choices their first flick had, but dished that the sequel would up the ante!

"Pitch Perfect 2" hits theaters on May 15, 2015.
