OMG! Skylar Astin shockingly revealed that he won’t be appearing in ‘Pitch Perfect 3,’ confirming the news via social media on Dec. 15. The Treblemakers also won’t be featured in the third installment of the hit franchise, totally shocking fans. Here’s the scoop!
How aca-awful! Skylar Astin, 29, took to Twitter to reveal some big news about Pitch Perfect 3 on Dec. 15, confirming that he and the all-boy a cappella group won’t be featured in the upcoming film. He wrote, “Yes. As of now, the Trebles and I won’t be in the third Pitch Perfect movie. They seem to be taking the story in a different direction.” Skylar, who portrays Jesse, as well as Bumper (Adam Devine) and Benji (Ben Platt), slayed when competing against Barden University’s all-female group and others, so clearly they’ll be missed! It looks like that chapter is truly over.

This has got to be a major shocker for Skylar, who previously dished about his hopes for the sequel. After the film was confirmed in 2015, he explained how their story-line could have been continued. “There was some stuff that was actually cut from the second movie that explained a little bit more why Jesse went away for a while,” he previously told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “I don’t know if they wanna maybe save that for a third so that’s why I won’t really get into the plot, but I’d be interested to watch them take a fun direction with Jesse.”
Although some details of the plot remain a secret, fans can rejoice in the fact that Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow and Skylar’s wife Anna Camp will be making their grand return. On top of that, Orange Is The New Black star Ruby Rose reportedly joined the star-studded cast. Elizabeth Banks will also be serving as one of the producers, so we’re still expecting plenty of funny moments when the film is released on Dec. 22, 2017.
