It’s happening! After nearly thirty years, the Bill & Ted saga continues this summer with Bill & Ted Face The Music, starring Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves. Today (9th), known as Bill & Ted Day, as the official trailer is finally here. The release date was initially slated for August 21st. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we aren’t sure how the theatrical release will unfold. Regardless, based on the trailer, the story continues as it looks like not much has changed for Bill and Ted since 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
While William Sadler will return to play his role as Death and Amy Stoch’s return as Missy (Bill’s stepmom). There will be quite a few new faces as the cast includes Samara Weaving (Ready or Not, The Babysitter) as Bill’s daughter – Brigette, Lundy-Paine (Atypical, Downsizing) as Ted’s child. Other new characters include Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street) as Dr. Taylor Wood, comedian Kristen Schaal (Bob’s Burgers) as Kelly, Jayma Mays (Glee) as Princess Joanna, Saturday Night Live’s Beck Bennett as Ted’s younger brother, Deacon, and Kid Cudi.
The synopsis reads:
“The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of William ‘Bill’ S. Preston Esq. (Winter) and Theodore ‘Ted’ Logan (Reeves). Yet to fulfill 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. Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends — to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe.”
