Aca-This is the best news ever!

After dominating the box office so far this year, it's no surprise that Pitch Perfect was just greenlit for a third installment!

Universal Pictures announced on Wednesday that Kay Cannon, the writer of the first two movies, would be attached for the sequel, but we don't know anything other than that.

Based on the events of Pitch Perfect 2, we have a feeling that Hailee Steinfeld will probably take over Anna Kendrick's part as the leader of the Bellas, but we hope that the original cast comes back for cameos at the least.

Plus there's that rumor that Anna Camp and Skylar Astin want Taylor Swift to be a part of the film, and we're totally on board for that!

And if you are obsessed with Pitch Perfect as much as we are, make sure to catch Brittany Snow on Wednesday night as she hosts the CMT Awards!

James Corden and Elizabeth Banks audition for Jane Fonda's legendary dance parties!

Don't ever accuse James Corden of not being able to break it down on the dance floor!

The TV funny man was running The Late Late Show With James Corden Thursday night when he asked guest Jane Fonda about her legendary dance parties.

Fonda told him that, well, you've gotta be able to bust a move to get invited, and she rattled off a list of celebs that had been at her house dancing all hours of the night!

That list included Elizabeth Banks, who was also a guest on Corden's show that night — but Banks pointed out to Fonda she had only ever been invited as a plus-one of other guests, and Fonda had never reached out to her personally!

So, in good fun, Corden and Banks decided they should

Anna Kendrick can see your toner through those jeans.

That's because she knows how much everyone in America loved Pitch Perfect 2!

In fact, the sequel was such a success in theaters, that the movie's soundtrack is also the No. 1 album in the country.

After PP2 topped the box office with $70 million, it seems as though people couldn't get enough a cappella, so they had to go out and get Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, and Brittany Snow for their iPods!

Pitch Perfect's success marks the third time a soundtrack has topped the Billboard charts; with Furious 7 and Empire both taking the No. 1 spot at some point in 2015.

While there's no news yet of a third Pitch Perfect, we have a feeling all of this good news could mean more musical mash-ups in our near future!

Have U seen Pitch Perfect 2 yet??
