The Wild Stallions are making a triumphant return!
On Wednesday, Orion Pictures and Hammerstone Studios released a short clip featuring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter at the Hollywood Bowl to make a very special announcement — that Bill & Ted 3 is officially happening!
According to duo, their third installment is titled Bill & Ted Face the Music and it's slated to be released on August 21, 2020. They also shared that production on the sequel, a followup to 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, will be going into production this summer.
“And it’s all because of you guys,” Winter explains in the clip. “And so we owe you a huge debt of gratitude, so we wanted to say thank you … and be excellent.”
Per Deadline, the new installment finds William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. (Winter) and Theodore “Ted” Logan (Reeves) middle-aged and yet to fulfill their rock ’n’ roll dreams. But when the pair are visited by someone from the future claiming their song can save humanity, they must embark upon an adventure to “bring harmony to the universe.”

"It's funny!" said Reeves, who shared that a new draft of the script had recently been submitted. "It's about the pressure of Bill and Ted having to save the world and it not quite working out."
He added that the upcoming film will also explore "the toll [their adventure] is taking on their families," and teased that the pair's bromance might even be in danger of "breaking apart."
A year later, the movie star appeared on The Graham Norton Show, where he offered some new details on the film, which heavily resemble the official synopsis.
"It would be Bill and Ted in their fifties, and that just makes me laugh right there," the 54-year-old actor said. "What happened to these guys? But there is a cool story. Basically, they’re supposed to write a song to save the world, and they haven’t done that."
"So, the pressure of having to save the world, you know, their marriages are falling apart, their kids are kind of mad at ’em, but then someone comes from the future and tells them that if they don’t write the song ... it’s not just the world now…so they have to save the universe because time is breaking apart," he added.
The upcoming adventure comedy will be directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) and written by the franchise’s original writing duo, Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon.
