It’s time to get aca-cited, because the Pitch Perfect 2 trailer is finally here, and it looks completely amazing!
The Bellas are back, and this time they’re headed to a World Championships of A Capella, where they’ll compete for “world domination.” If this first trailer is any indication, the movie promises to be just as funny as the original, and here’s the proof:

The slowed-down version of Kendrick’s hit song makes a quick appearance at the beginning of the trailer, set against touching scenes that promise happy cries, but that’s all a ruse. A ruse, I say!
2. (Fart noise)
I’m sorry, but I’m a huge fan of a good fart joke. Oh wait, I’m not kidding at all. This is the part of the trailer where the fun begins.
3. This riff-off, complete with a man sandwich
Looks like there’s going to be another riff-off, so that’s pretty damn aca-citing. Also, we’re assured that Rebel Wilson will be bringing the funny to Pitch Perfect 2 as only she can.
4. This glimpse of the World Championships of A Capella
Stunning. I mean, I know it’s supposed to be a comedy, but who doesn’t love well-choreographed song and dance numbers and freaking fire? Since the sequel is going to be set on a global stage, it looks like we can expect big, exciting numbers.
5. The return of Gail Abernathy-McKadden
Elizabeth Banks is spot-on in her reprised role from the first movie.
6. Whatever this is:
7. This sure sign that Fat Amy will still be as funny as ever
Rebel Wilson has a knack for slapstick comedy, and this scene serves as the perfect reminder of what we can look forward to.
8. The “chemistry” between Bumper and Fat Amy
No, seriously. Apparently, we can expect the two to get down this time around, so there’s that.
