Pitch Perfect in the latest 'a ca-awesome" musical comedy from Director Jason Moore (Dawson's Creek, Trophy Wife), boasting of-the-moment cast including Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air, 50/50), Brittany Snow (Hairspray, John Tucker Must Die), Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids, Bachelorette), Skylar Astin (Wreck-It Ralph, Taking Woodstock) and Anna Camp (The Help, Foregetting the Girl).
One of the highest grossing musical comedies at the Box Office, Pitch Perfect follows a misfit all-female college singing group who must find their voice and define their individuality to win the state championship singing finals.
Beca (Kendrick) is a freshman at University and a feisty free spirit. All she cares about is getting to LA to become a DJ but, prompted by a deal with her dad she reluctantly joins a cappella group, The Bellas – full of mean girls, sweet girls, and weird girls – mainly Tasmanian -Fat Amy' played by Australia's Rebel Wilson. The only thing any of them have in common is how good they sound when they sing together, and their rivalry with the all-male group The Treblemakers.

Interview with Alexis Knapp (-Stacie'), Ester Dean (-Cynthia Rose') & Hana Mae Lee (-Lilly')
QUESTION: Let us talk about your characters. All your characters are super funny! Stacie is really lusty!
ALEXIS KNAPP: She is lusty, she is ballsy, she is not afraid to go all the way on it and embarrass herself.
QUESTION: Let us talk Ester, let us talk about Cynthia Rose: I laughed so hard when she says, 'I will help," then grabs a boob.
ALEXIS KNAPP: 'I got your back." 'I got your front!"
ESTER DEAN: Yes, Cynthia Rose is very in love with her.
ALEXIS KNAPP: It is mutual.
ESTER DEAN: She is just a very free, sexy lesbian. I think what got me the part was my shoulders. I have linebacker shoulders.
ALEXIS KNAPP: No, they just wanted to have the girl who wrote the song, sing the song.
ESTER DEAN: They did not know that.
ALEXIS KNAPP: Of course they knew!
ESTER DEAN: Yes they did! No, they did not. No, I think I sung and I think I did a good job, and I got the part. I auditioned only a week and a half before they started shooting, so I did not even get any chance to – they said, 'Yes, and you can go to Baton Rouge now for three months." So I was like, 'Okay fine! Not a big problem!" What about you?
QUESTION: Hana, let us talk about your character – she's so cute but so weird! She ate her twin? What is that about?
HANA MAE LEE: Yes, there could only be one Lilly! There can be nobody that steals her thunder of weirdness. Lilly is very seemingly quiet, but she is not very quiet, is she? She speaks her mind, that little one, and she pushes the edge of what she thinks is fun and interesting. She is so enchanted with what is happening, like she loves it when people fight – she sits there and enjoys it, you know. She just enjoys everything. She was just a really fun dynamic character to play.
QUESTION: How was it making a -sick angel'?
HANA MAE LEE: It was amazing!
ESTER DEAN: You call it a -sick angel'?
HANA MAE LEE: I was like, 'Mum, that's why I want to be an actor, so I can fall in vomit and make an angel!" And it happened.
ESTER DEAN: -Sick angel' – I love that.
QUESTION: Were you nervous about doing the beatboxing? It is amazing.
HANA MAE LEE: Yes, because all I knew coming into this was going [beatboxes], but now I know how to -scratch', the -PTKs', so I have come a long way. I was very nervous. I was like, 'Oh my God! I have to be good."
QUESTION: Ester, I guess you have had the most experience, but were you still nervous?
ESTER DEAN: Not nervous, but ready to figure out what I needed to do, what was going to be my part that I come into and shine in, because everyone was so great, I was like, 'I cannot just be good at singing, what else can I do?"
QUESTION: So I just want to ask because I am here for the DVD and I am hoping there will be extras. Is there stuff you shot that did not make it into the film?
ALEXIS KNAPP: So much.
HANA MAE LEE: There was a lot.
ALEXIS KNAPP: There is the amazing fight sequence – remember, the fight scene? There was a bunch of us paired off doing improv stuff and each one of us – Adam (Devine), and I do not remember the actor's name, then Utkarsh (Ambudkar) and Donald Faison, then me, and, what was his name? The Ron Jeremy lookalike?
HANA MAE LEE: He was hilarious.
ALEXIS KNAPP: It was just so funny.
ESTER DEAN: The booty part.
ALEXIS KNAPP: Yes. 'Let me see that booty work, booty work."
ESTER DEAN: Then there were the telegrams.
HANA MAE LEE: The singing telegrams, where we dressed up in costumes.
ALEXIS KNAPP: Yes, the singing telegrams – they were so cute. We just had too much good footage, so there needs to be a lot of deleted scenes.
HANA MAE LEE: They will definitely be in the deleted scenes.
ESTER DEAN: And -Pitch Horrific' too.
