After several years of teasing the possibility, we now have official confirmation that Keanu Reeves’ Ted “Theodore” Logan and Alex Winter’s Bill S. Preston Esq. will be returning to the big screen for another excellent adventure in Bill & Ted Face the Music.
The third film has been penned by original Bill & Ted creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) directing.
Bill & Ted Face the Music “will see the duo long past their days as time-traveling teenagers and now weighed down by middle age and the responsibilities of family. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures and some sympathetic music legends, they find much, much more than just a song.”
“We couldn’t be more excited to get the whole band back together again,” said Reeves and Winter (via THR). “Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we’ve got a dream team!”
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure was released in 1989, with the sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey following in 1991.
