Bill S Preston and Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan are coming back to the big screen for the first time in almost thirty years in very highly-anticipated threequel Bill & Ted Face The Music – and to say that there’s some excitement around the film’s release would be a big understatement.
Unfortunately the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has pushed back the release of a number of movies, so we may possibly end up having to wait longer than expected to see Keanu Reeves (Ted) and Alex Winter (Bill) reunited for their third adventure. However, for now we can content ourselves with an update from Winter.
When he was asked by a Twitter follower whether the film will still be released in cinemas or head straight for a home release, Winter answered: “Hey, thanks for asking. Everything is great in BT3 land. The cut is almost done and looks fantastic.

“Teasers and trailers are ready to go. Like every movie slated for this summer we had to stop and reorganize due to Covid. Teaser coming in a few weeks, news on release soon!”
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure was released in 1989 with sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey following in 1991, so a lot will have changed for guitar-playing saviours of the world Bill and Ted in the years since.
Face the Music screenwriter Ed Solomon recently blasted claims that the new film will be too “woke” following the announcement that it will feature Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine as the now middle-aged protagonists’ daughters.
“There’s no agenda – and we made them girls WAY before it was socially a thing. But you’ll believe what you need to believe. I get it. Your facts are way off, though. They’re supporting characters,” he replied to a critical fan on Twitter.
Face the Music reunites us with Bill and Ted as they are still yet to pen the greatest song ever written, the achievement of which will align the planets and bring them into universal harmony, due to numerous distractions by family and adulthood responsibilities.
But when the fabric of time and space tears, the friends get a message from the future warning that only their music can save the world. So it’s time for them to face up to their destiny, with a little help from their daughters and a few music legends.
Bill and Ted Face The Music will also star William Sadler, Jayma Mays, Erinn Hayes, Jillian Bell and Kid Cudi.
