Perfect human specimen, Elizabeth Banks, has announced that she will return as director for the third installment of the “Pitch Perfect” franchise.

Pitch Perfect 3, releasing in 2017, will see the return of  Banks not only in the director chair but also in her role as Gail alongside other returning castmates Brittany Snow, Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson.

The original 2012 film was based on Mickey Rapkin’s book Pitch Perfect: The Quest for Collegiate A Cappella Glory. The film grossed more than $115 million worldwide and its sequel, which was helmed by Banks, was even more successful, raking in more than $285 million worldwide.

Kay Cannon will write the script for the third installment of the popular musical-comedy film franchise. Banks, Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Entertainment and Max Handelman of Brownstone Productions will return to produce.

Pitch Perfect 3 will hit theaters Aug. 4, 2017.

YAYYYYYY! Anna Camp will officially reprise her role alongside Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson for the upcoming film, Pitch Perfect 2.

Camp returns as Aubrey Posen, the uptight and perpetually stressed out a cappella singer. However, in what capacity she returns is unknown as the character was a senior in the first film.

The sequel will reportedly follow Fat Amy (Wilson) and Beca (Kendrick) through their senior year at Barden University.

Elizabeth Banks, the mind who conceived the original Pitch Perfect, is set to direct the follow-up.

Camp is one of the final original cast members to be confirmed for the sequel, as many of the actors from the first film (including Kendrick and Wilson) have already joined. New cast members sar far include Katey Sagal and Hailee Steinfeld.

Pitch Perfect 2 is set to hit theaters on May 15, 2015.
