The long-mooted third Bill and Ted movie is set to go into production this year with a projected release date of summer 2020, it has been announced.

Actors Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves – aka William “Bill” S Preston Esq and Theodore “Ted” Logan – broke the news in a short promotional video filmed at the Hollywood Bowl. Thanking “you the fans”, the pair said the title of the new film would be Bill & Ted Face the Music, and would “hopefully” shoot in the summer.

At the same time, producers Orion Pictures released a plot synopsis, which confimed that the film will pick the characters up as middle-aged men. It states: “Yet to fulfil their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends and a few music legends.”

As previously indicated, the film is due to be directed by Galaxy Quest’s Dean Parisot, with a screenplay from Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, the writing team behind the first two Bill and Ted movies. A note on Orion Pictures’ YouTube channel has named the release date as 21 August 2020.

Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey were released in 1989 and 1991 respectively and proved unexpectedly popular. The first film saw them travel through time to bring significant figures back to present day California to help them pass their school history report, while the second saw them famously take on Death at Battleships, parodying Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal. Winter in particular has been pitching a third film for years, but it has never fully solidified, despite an announcement being made in May 2018 at the Cannes film festival. Reeves has also showed enthusiasm for the project, alongside a career headlining a string of successful blockbusters. In 2013 he told NBC’s Today show: “I’m open to the idea of that … I think it’s pretty surreal, playing Bill & Ted at 50. But we have a good story in that. You can see the life and joy in those characters, and I think the world can always use some life and joy.”

Be funny if at the conclusion they get Max Martin, Mark Ronson and, hell, Diane Warren or something to help write them the universal song that will save the world. And in the real world that song from the soundtrack will indeed hit number 1 ... for like three weeks, and then Cardi B or someone knocks it off and we forget about it.

Interesting coincidence: the original Bill & Ted movie premiered February 17, 1989, and Wayne's World debuted (on SNL, at least) the next night, February 18, 1989.

They named their daughters after each other.

extremely will & jada move

Lundy-Paine will play Billie Logan, the daughter to Reeves’ Ted “Theodore” Logan, while Weaving is Thea Preston, daughter of Winter’s Bill S. Preston. They join their dads, now middle-aged best friends, as they set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. William Sadler also stars.

My surprising enjoyment of Cobra Kai has cautioned me against dismissing endeavors of this nature out of hand but the abject failure of almost every other endeavor of this nature makes me just a lil wary.

The Pee-Wee Herman comeback movie worked pretty well, and this one has even more going for it. As a theatrical release, though ... I'd say it's doomed.

I found an old hard drive with a bunch of BTS shots from Bill & Ted 1. These are from the opening dance number (yes an actual, choreographed rock jam) and face off with the jocks at the bus stop that didn’t make it into the movie: pic.twitter.com/xFSSeVAzSy

I had no idea Orion Pictures still existed, or was revived, or whatever, but that's weird.

Trailer is a little skimpy, but looks good so far. I'm extremely trepidatious about any and all sequels, reboots, and remakes.

Xp I assumed that it was an ironic nod back to the the original films, but no it’s a real live company. They seemed to have disappeared between 1999 and 2014. Slate of pictures since then is underwhelming to say the least, other than the excellent ‘God’s Own Country’.

They remade Valley Girl as a musical!

I always thought the funniest joke of the first two movies was that the inevitable sub-shredder pop metal garbage these two would record could save and unify the world. Love that they remain committed to such a silly concept, though as much as I love Bill & Ted I watched this new trailer keenly aware that "the world" means "the western world," though I kind of hope it ends with the generic montage of one room of representative people in each continent celebrating their victory with high-fives.

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 9 June 2020 15:38 (one year ago) link

I suddenly remembered Don McKeller's pretty good "Last Night," where the world is going to end at some very specific time, and as the various people of iirc Toronto handle the news different ways, a radio station in the background keeps counting down the greatest songs of all time, concluding, eventually, moments before the end of the world, with - hilariously, anticlimactically, almost inexplicably but in the end, why not - "Guantanamera."

Josh in Chicago, Tuesday, 9 June 2020 15:44 (one year ago) link

I'm gonna be honest, that trailer did not impress

Guayaquil (eephus!), Tuesday, 9 June 2020 17:33 (one year ago) link

Also honest, the "how could we steal from ourselves" joke it basically the same as the "why would we lie to ourselves" joke from the first movie.

This was exactly as good and/or bad as I expected. I enjoyed it OK, and never want to see it again.

Josh in Chicago, Saturday, 29 August 2020 02:18 (eleven months ago) link

We watched it tonight with our kids. I had pretty low expectations and it was way better than I expected. It was a nice melding of the 1st and 2nd movies, with an added layer of middle-aged melancholy.

Had the spirit of the originals but I wish it had been funnier

Vinnie, Thursday, 3 September 2020 08:00 (ten months ago) link

you know I'm kind of stunned that Andrew W.K. was not asked to be involved with this in any capacity

frogbs, Thursday, 3 September 2020 19:32 (ten months ago) link

Also saw at the drive-in, also enjoyed enormously. Obviously rushed and trimmed due to a small budget being cut just before production, but the commitment of the cast keeps everything running. As well as retaining the spirit of the originals, it deepens them not only by the doubts and weaknesses of the middle-aged Bill & Ted, but the way those are resolved. Manages to not only be a B&T updated for middle-aged viewers, but to still be goofy silly fun for kids.

It's not jammed with jokes, but I was grinning most of the time, and my group (in lawn chairs in front of our respective cars) all LOL-ed periodically.

As good as it needed to be. And the actor who plays the daughter played an extremely good young Ted -- almost too good as I felt it showed up the one who did not even seem to be trying to play young Bill.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Thursday, 3 September 2020 20:27 (ten months ago) link

Weaving does the 'turning at the shoulders' thing that Bill does, and plenty of reacting with her jaw, it's just that Lundy-Paine is uncannily great at the upper-body rubberiness of Ted

(also used by Reeves in Parenthood iirc)

I started looking for what Billie was doing after being amazed at Theodora's wavy posture :)

erratic wolf angular guitarist (sic), Thursday, 3 September 2020 20:58 (ten months ago) link

i think billie tied her voice more directly to her whole body movement rather than head/facial movement but she also went pretty big

i think samara has everything put together in the right way but it comes off as slightly too subtle somehow & doesnt quite read as big on camera esp in close-up

but bless them forever, they truly help make the movie the joy it is in a major way

this was pretty shitty. keanu looked weird, the plot made no sense, the new characters were boring (exception for the kill-bot, who i got a couple of laughs out of), kid cudi had a major role for some reason, but mostly it just wasn't funny

i was annoyed by the keanu impression that the actress playing ted's daughter was doing
