Gag Reel

Competition Crescendo

Cast and crew talk about incorporating the riff off and introducing the new groups that take part of the USO tour from Evermoist to Saddle Up and Young Sparrow and DJ Nutz.

A Capella Action

The Vocal Arrangement producer discusses the opening/finale sequence and how challenging it was to film. Wanting to use a capella to sound like a James Bond theme using Britney Spears’ “Toxic”.

The Women of Pitch Perfect 3

The Bellas talk about what the film means to them and how promoting strong, interesting stories for women. They discuss about how each character has different dimensions and depths and having a female director helped the creative team work together. Having experience in theater arts and directing music videos was a great asset to the production.

Don’t Mess With Rebel

We get to see the training Rebel Wilson goes through for the action sequences and her backstory.

The Headliner: DJ Khaled

The producer wanted to bring someone unexpected that represents Pop culture and DJ Khaled was a prefect fit.

The Final Note: John and Gail

The cast discuss the concept of John and Gail filing a Doc-amentary about the Bellas which is a way to end the relationship between the singers and the former podcast hosts.

Just Because He’s a Bad Guy…

Were introduced to John Lithgow’s character as Fat Amy’s estranged father. We see the relationship between John and the Bella’s when it comes to singing and dancing.

The Final Performance

Director Trisha Sie and the production team discuss selecting the perfect spot to film the final musical performance. Deciding the costumes they’ll wear and the progression of the scene. Using George Michael’s “Freedom” was the Song that represented not only the journey the Bella’s were going through but also perfect for current times.

“Freedom: 90 x Cups” Official Music Video

Hollywood of the South

Even though the film takes place in Europe a lot of it was filmed on set in Atlanta. Recreating the marketplace in France, filming at the Georgia aquarium and the Clay National Guard.

The bonus features also contain Feature Commentary with Director Trish Sie and Feature Commentary With Producers Paul Brooks & Max Handleman.

Overall the studio did a great job of wrapping up the franchise by giving fans what they like while maintaining current with pop culture and events. Giving clips from all three films is definitely a bonus as well as seeing the family dynamic amongst all the women and showing this is a “girl power” themed film. A definite must have for fans of the Pitch Perfect franchise.

Pitch Perfect 3 will be available on 4K Ultra HD in a combo pack which includes 4K Ultra HD Blu-rayTM, Blu-rayTM and Digital. The 4K Ultra HD will include all bonus features on the Blu-rayTM disc.
