Can’t get enough of Anna Kendrick‘s ‘Cups’ routine or Rebel Wilson’s Fat Amy? Good news, ‘Pitch Perfect’ fans: both actresses are back for the aca-awesome movie’s aca-sequel, ‘Pitch Perfect 2.’

On Thursday, Feb. 6, Universal Studios announced that both Kendrick and Wilson will be reprising their roles as members of the Barden Bellas in the second film. Elizabeth Banks, who played a hilariously passive-aggressive competition commentator in the first flick, will be directing the movie as well as reprising her role. Skylar Astin, who played Kendrick’s character’s love interest Jesse in the first movie, is also signed on.

“I’m pumped, I love the cast. I’m very close with the entire cast, we’re all excited to get back,” Astin told Us Weekly. “I’m actually excited for the couple months before we shoot it, when things really start to come together with the story and I start to hear what I’ll be singing, and to what extent I’ll be in the film.”

Kendrick, who also gushed that she was “very excited” about the film, gave a hint about what to expect in the second installment of the a cappella flick.

“I think, like musically, the theme is going to be a different kind of theme musically,” she spilled to the mag. “I mean, I’m sort of speculating, like I don’t really know. I’ve heard, like, whispers of rumors.”

While plot details have yet to be worked out, one thing is for sure — the cast is just as psyched about the sequel as we are.

‘Pitch Perfect 2′ will begin filming in May in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and is set to hit theaters in 2015.
