This December the singing battles of all singing battles will commence in cinemas near you. On 20th December, Pitch Perfect 3 will be released starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow to name a few. The third film in the series, the plot continues on from the 2015 film. Following their win at the world championships, acapella group Bellas reunite for one last singing competition at an overseas USO tour but face a group who uses both instruments and voices. Anna Kendrick will reprise her role, as Beca Mitchell and we can’t wait to see her back on our screens. The 32-year old American actress first began her career as a child actor in theatre productions. She then rose to prominence for her supporting role as Jessica Stanley in The Twilight Saga from 2008-2012. Other notable films that the talented lady has appeared in include Up in the Air in 2009, Into the Woods in 2014, 2016’s Trolls and Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates also in 2016. As well as being a successful actress, Anna also published her own memoir last year, entitled Scrappy Little Nobody. There’s no rest either as she is currently filming for not one but three new films. Next year, A Simple Favour will be released telling the story of a blogger whose best friend vanishes. Set for release in 2019, Nicole sees Anna star as Santa’s daughter as she find herself taking over the family business. Finally, Anna is also reprising her role alongside Justin Timberlake in Trolls 2 in 2020. She may be one of America’s best actresses but does she have any secret formula? “It’s luck, pure and simple. I mean, I work very, very hard, but I don’t take any of this for granted and I don’t think any of it is because I’m better or more talented than other actors…There are people who work at least as hard as me and are twice as talented, and nobody’s asking them about makeup secrets. There is a lot of luck to how my life’s turned out.” She continued: “I’ve been pretty lucky in terms of the films I’ve been in, and having a slow and steady build. I have done smaller films that a lot of people in the industry have seen, and I feel sort of fortunate that it hasn’t been this overnight thing. I’m hoping that it continues to be this slow and steady thing so that I can take a deep breath and get used to it.” The award-winning actress also sings her own songs! Fans of the trilogy Pitch Perfect will be pleased to hear that when Anna’s character sings, it is actually Anna singing! Her song “Cups (When I’m Gone)” from the film became a hit and rose to No. 2 on Billboard’s Adult Pop Song chart.
