Bill & Ted 3? Yes way, dude! In a video filmed at Hollywood Bowl posted on Wednesday, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, the titular stars of the cult classic comedy film franchise, confirm that a third Bill & Ted film is officially in the works. Bill & Ted Face The Music is scheduled for a summer 2020 release. Wyld Stallynz will ride again!
Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter Confirm Bill & Ted 3
For those unfamiliar, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) follows a pair of air-headed aspiring musicians—Bill S. Preston, Esq. (Winter) and Ted “Theodore” Logan (Reeves)—whose band, Wyld Stallynz (pronounced “Wild Stallions”), faces certain doom if they can’t pass their History final. However, in the future, Wyld Stallynz have saved humanity as the greatest band of all time, so an ambassador from the future (played by the late George Carlin) heads back to 1989 to lend Bill and Ted a time-traveling telephone booth to help the would-be rock and roll saviors with their report. Shenanigans—and an endless supply of quotable lines—ensue. The sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991), continued the pair’s high-concept sci-fi hijinx. Since ’91, however, we haven’t heard from Bill and Ted.
Now, nearly 30 years later, fans can look forward to a new adventure with one of the greatest fictional bands of all time…Wyld Stallynz! Most triumphant.
