"Pitch Perfect 2" is getting some Oscar-nominated star power with the addition of Hailee Steinfeld.

The 17-year-old will join Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow in the Elizabeth Banks-directed sequel, according to Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.

Elizabeth took to Twitter to congratulate the actress.

@HaileeSteinfeld Welcome to the Barden Bellas! Now lace up your dancing shoes, and get your tush down to Baton Rouge. #PitchPerfect2

"Pitch Perfect 2" is slated to sing its way into theaters on May 15, 2015.
