The film basically revolves around a group, Barden Bellas a Cappella team, who is super interested in music and is highly talented. They had a talent for making music and songs from their own voices and mouths. The group is full of people that are all over the place personality-wise, but still, proved to be strong contenders.
The group performed internationally, in 2015, to keep their talent alive and to relive all the moments they enjoyed together before. Later on, Bellas performed in Europe as college graduates.

Brittany Snow’s Interview With Us Weekly:
In 2017, Snow told the Us Weekly that they are doing these movies because now they enjoy doing it and the cast has become so close to each other. She also said that they can do these movies forever because now they understand each other’s comedy and have become a part of this amazing routine.
She also said that the director now allows them to change the lines and improvise the song or scenes if required, in the third film. The third part was made in a way that it already fulfilled all the stuff we needed in it. Whereas, on the other hand, the first and second parts were strictly made according to the script and we all had to follow it the way it was penned down, unlike the third one which was more on the side of free performance as the director had his trust in us by then.
Kendrick’s Interview With Us Weekly:
In an interview with Us Weekly in 2019, Kendrick said that the movie might be over but the bond they share with each other is beyond all this work thing and they still talk to each other almost regularly. She also said that they get together once in a while on each other’s events and sometimes to celebrate the success or happiness of the other and they will always remain like that.
She described their bond in an adorable way, saying ‘Even if we don’t talk to each other for days, because there’s nothing to talk about, something naturally pops up and we gossip about it for hours, which is the most fun thing to do for girls’.
