Watch the Hilarious, Musical 'Pitch Perfect 2' Trailer

Pitch Perfect was not only an incredible comedic rom-com: The 2012 flick helped bring a cappella to the mainstream and launch a newfound enthusiasm for the genre. Today, we get the first peek at the beloved film's upcoming sequel.

Watch the Pitch Perfect 2 trailer above that opens with The Bellas (a.k.a. the a cappella group Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow are a part of in the movie) singing a gorgeous, choir-inspired rendition of the film's unlikely hit single "Cups."

We then move in snippets of the sequel that includes scenes from the World Championships of A Cappella (we're not sure that actually exists) and a hilarious portion where Rebel Wilson wipes out after sledding (yes, sledding) down a flight of stairs. 

One can still feel the lasting effect of Pitch Perfect on a cappella music today. For example, vocal quintet Pentatonix have racked up four Top 10 albums since the film's release and a cappella has been deemed YouTube's new favorite obsession.

Pitch Perfect 2 comes out May 15.
