Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure was released in 1989 and told the story of William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Theodore “Ted” Logan, two metalhead slackers whose music inspires a utopian society in the future.
In order for this future to happen, a citizen from that time called Rufus (George Carlin) is sent back to the 80s in a time-travelling phone booth to teach the two how to use it and ensure they complete school and secure fame for their band.
Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey was released two years later and sees the titular duo trying to come back to life by beating the Grim Reaper in a series of contests after they were murdered by robot doubles.
Bill & Ted Face the Music will see the two heroes, bow middle-aged set out on a new adventure after a traveller from the future warns them that the universe will only know harmony through there songs and it’s up to them, with help from old friends and their families, to ensure they survive.
In 2017, Reeves told BBC talk show host Graham Norton that the film had been written and the story would see the duo “supposed to write a song to save the world and they haven’t done that. The pressure of having to save the world, their marriages are falling apart, their kids are kind of mad at them, and then someone comes from the future and tells them if they don’t write the song it’s just not the world, it’s the universe.”
The movie is scheduled for release in cinemas on August 21, 2020.
