Star Ruby Rose tells TooFab: "I think that the moral of the story is that we're stronger together."
Hitting theaters at the end of a year that has seen women come together to use their voices to protest Donald Trump's presidency, call out inequality in Hollywood and beyond, and even change the way society handles sexual harassment in the work place, stars Ruby Rose, Chrissie Fit and Hana Mae Lee told TooFab they hope the movie's message of unity resonates with audiences.
"Well, I think that the moral of the story is that we're stronger together," Rose told TooFab. "Friendship is so important and to have people in your life that genuinely care about you and want you to do well and will prop you up instead of steam roll you to get themselves higher. I think it's important to know your friends, love your friends and this sort of film reminds you why your friends are so important."
Rose continued to explain how that bond was the biggest difference between her group Evermoist and the Bellas.
"I think a part of the reason why the Bellas do what they do so well, as opposed to Evermoist, is because you never see Evermoist just kind of hanging out, having fun, supporting one another. They're catty to the Bellas and they aren't so nice to one another," Rose said. "I think if they were supportive of each other like the Bellas, they would have more fun."
Fit echoed Rose's sentiments by saying she hopes women stop trying to compete with each other.
"I hope that they see the whole thing of women being in competition with each other is just a thing of the past. You know, we need to ban together and support each other and that's what the Bellas do," Fit told TooFab.
Mae Lee added that the women who make up the Barden Bellas actually created that special bond off the screen, which made shooting those final scenes of their farewell tour "emotional."
"The last few scenes were really emotional, especially that freedom bit. Everybody's character has finally grown, we don't see the same things again and it's kind of our farewell song and it's like life," she said. "It was emotional because I was like, 'Wow, this is the farewell of the Bellas,' but it was also beautiful because we released the butterflies and I'm really proud of what we did."
