On August 21st, 2020, Bill and Ted will return in Bill & Ted: Face the Music. Actors Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter have announced the return (via Orion pictures) since 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey while standing outside of the Hollywood Bowl as they thanked their fans for the support of the two films over the years.
According to Revolver, the press release has revealed the plot of the film involves the two now middle-aged “rockstars” who have “yet to fulfill their rock ‘n’ roll destiny” have to somehow continue to find a way to save humanity. While the film promises to bring back a few old characters, there will be additional cameos.
Unfortunately, we won’t see the late George Carlin portray his epic role as Rufus since he died back in 2008. We are interested to see how this film will pan out as it’s been nearly thirty years. These two classics have also provided life-long lessons such as “party on dudes” and to be “excellent to each other.”
Watch Reeves and Winter’s announcement below:
These two films had a few unforgettable quotes, here’s a few of our favorites:
Dead Bill: If I die, you can have my Megadeth collection.
Dead Ted: But, dude, we’re already dead.
Dead Bill: Oh. Well then they’re yours, dude.
Dead Bill: [after seeing hell] We got totally lied to by our album covers, man.
Evil Duke: Put them in the iron maiden.
Ted “Theodore” Logan: Iron Maiden?
Bill S. Preston: [With Ted] Excellent! [both play air guitar]
Evil Duke: Execute them.
Bill S. Preston: [With Ted] Bogus!
Bill: Ted, while I agree that, in time, our band will be most triumphant, the truth is, Wyld Stallyns will never be a super-band until we get Eddie Van Halen on guitar.
Ted: Yes, Bill, but… I do not believe we will get Eddie Van Halen before we have a triumphant video.
Bill: Ted, it’s pointless to have a triumphant video before we have decent instruments.
Ted: Well, how can we have decent instruments if we don’t really even know how to play?
Bill: That is why we need Eddie Van Halen!
Ted: And that is why we need a triumphant video!
Both: [think for a second] EXCELLENT! (guitar riff)
Ted: Our first guest speaker comes from the year 400 BC, a time when most of the world looked like the cover of the Led Zeppelin album, Houses of the Holy.
Bill: We were there. There were many steps and columns. It was most tranquil.
Ted: He is sometimes known as the father of modern thought. He was the teacher of Plato, who was in turn the teacher of Aristotle, and like Ozzy Osbourne, was repeatedly accused of corruption of the young.
