THE struggle is real for the Barton Bellas in the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 3.

After graduating from college in the previous film, the a capella singing champions are out in the real world trying to make something of themselves.

Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) is busking as an Amy Winehouse impersonator, while her room mate Beca (Anna Kendrick) has just quit her job. Flo is serving overpriced smoothies and Chloe is trying to get into vet school.

Job prospects aren't looking great for most of the Bellas, and over a drink they decide to reunite to perform for the US troops.

But they face a new challenge sharing a bill with 'real' musicians with 'real' instruments, including an all-female band featuring Aussie Ruby Rose:

The other bands look down on the Bellas as cover singers, so can they make a comeback?

Pitch Perfect 3 opens in Australian cinemas on January 4, 2018.
