‘Bill and Ted 3’ is coming out in the summer of 2020

How about a little Keanu Reeves on a Friday morning, huh? And Alex Winter, too, of course. Yesterday, Alex and Keanu made a video to announce that Bill and Ted 3 will finally be made. Can I get a Friday w00t! please? They’ve been talking about this movie forever and it looks like they are finally going to make it and deliver it to us in the summer of 2020.

Bill and Ted are prepping another excellent adventure.

On Wednesday, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter — the actors who starred in 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and its 1991 sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey — confirmed they would be returning for another installment in the cult comedy franchise, titled Bill & Ted Face the Music.

The long-awaited film will be written by franchise scribes Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon and will go into production this summer, with a release date scheduled for Aug. 21, 2020, according to the The New York Times. Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest and Red 2) will direct.

As for the plot, it appears to follow the same model laid out in previous movies, with the dim-witted duo of Bill (Winter) and Ted (Reeves) traveling through time and getting into a sea of antics.

“Yet to fulfill their rock ’n’ 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 and bring harmony to the universe,” a press release reads, according to the Times. “Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends and a few music legends.”

It’s unclear just who those “families, old friends and music legends” will be. Previous films saw the headbangers crossing paths with everyone from Billy the Kid, Socrates, Joan of Arch, and even the Grim Reaper.

Don’t tell me it’s a coincidence that Bill and Ted are returning mere months before the 2020 Presidential election. Maybe they really will save the world after all. I’ll admit, this makes me incredibly happy. We just rewatched them with our kids and were delighted that they found them as fun as we did. They’re dumb but in a silly and playful way, and still made me laugh. It felt like I was visiting an old friend who was exactly the person I remember them to be. Had this been a remake, it would have bummed me out. The fact that it’s a sequel, with them as middle-aged men is probably my favorite part. Please let them be married with kids. Personally, I hope they have a few nostalgic nods in the film but don’t lean on trying to bring it all back. I don’t even want to think of how they will handle/replace George Carlin’s Rufus.

And since we’re discussing Keanu’s movie, the John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum official trailer was released yesterday. You can watch it here. The amount of times you say “yum” is up to you.

  5. Esmom says:

    Aw, great news. “Something is afoot at the Circle K” never fails to crack me up.

    It is so great that this isn’t a remake. That would be a travesty.

  6. Mia4s says:

    Awww, I forgot about having to replace George Carlin. Bogus.

    These years later sequels drive me nuts…but dammit I’ll be there for this one.

    All we are is dust in the wind, dude.

    So for a human of a certain age this is excellent. XO So, so, so happy for this one. My inner 16 year old is dying a happy death!!!

  9. Caitrin says:

    They’re filming it here this summer, and because this is the year of all my old faves, Kevin Smith is currently here, too. There’s a Mooby’s near my office!

  10. Chef Grace says:

    Ah memories….
    I am giving a WOOOOOOOOOT!

  11. boz says:

    2 hours of pure, unalloyed happiness. Exactly what we will all need in the summer of 2020.

  12. Chica says:

    They were married with kids at the end of Bogus Journey – they were rocking out with the kids strapped to themselves. And the glorious facial hair (van dyke? Not up on the names of partial beards). Much yum.

    Just watched the John Wick 3 trailer. Keanu on a horse. Yeeessss.

  13. Nanea says:

    Hot Guy Friday of a certain age could be a new, recurring theme here – especially with not only Keanu, but also Mark Dacascos, Lance Reddick, Zouks and Fish in that JW III trailer!

    Aaaahhh!!! I forgot about Bill and Ted, I’m adding it to my list of old movies my daughter has to see😂 She picks one every other weekend and so far she’s liked all my childhood favorites! We recently watched Stand by me and she couldn’t believe they smoked and cursed, so different than movies today.

    Hecate, I’m leaving you in charge of hot guy Fridays. Thank you for this 😁

    Ziggy piggy ziggy piggy ZIGGY PIGGY.

    Keanu on a Friday? Yes, please.

  20. T.Fanty says:

    Huzzah! I bought the DVDs forced my kids to watch them on a road trip last summer. They complained for the first thirty seconds, then fell in love with them. They watched both of them twice on the drive back. This is most excellent news.

  21. Louisa Wright says:

    This makes me so happy! #KeanuForever

  22. Nicegirl says:

    Be Excellent to Each Other.


    Party On, Dudes!

    Friday woot woot!!

    Sidenote – In one of Keanu’s earliest movies, The Night Before, his co-star was Lori Laughlin. The plot was total sci-fi as Keanu played a nerd who couldn’t get a date to the prom. Lori only went with him because she lost a bet. Ha! He was super cute in this.
    2019 is the 20th anniversary of The Matrix and the 25th of Speed. Keanu is truly immortal.

    • Nanea says:

      Thanks for that sidenote!
      I don’t live in the US and am not American and couldn’t really be bothered to keep up with all things Hallmark Channel. Yet somehow, vaguely, I seemed to have come across LL before…
      TNB! Keanu! I had no idea, as it’s been years and years (decades even?) that I watched TNB.

    • paddingtonjr says:

      Lori and Keanu also played a couple in a gloriously 1980s-cheesy TV movie called “Brotherhood of Justice.” Young Keanu in all his Preppie best and working out in a half sweatshirt – YUMMERS!!!!

  25. Veronica S. says:

    Never has Keanu’s immortality been more evident than in juxtaposition with Alex Winter. What is this – his third? fourth? century of stage success?

  26. Incredulous says:

    This is not news from the hell dimension timeline, this is from the timeline of being most excellent to each other, WTF is going on?

  27. Nicegirl says:

    Has anyone seen Keanu in ‘Knock knock’ –

    That movie was freaky. Omg.

  28. Fluffy Princess says:

    Wooot! Wyld Stallyns 4-ever!

  29. paddingtonjr says:

    WOOT, WOOT! What a sight to wake up to! I love that Alex and Keanu continue to embrace these characters and acknowledge fans of the movies. So many celebrities are embarrassed about their early work once they become successful, but Keanu is always willing to go back to it. Although Keanu has become more commercially successful, Alex has become a respected documentary filmmaker and Keanu has done the narration for at least one of Alex’s films. Bill + Ted 4Ever!

  30. Steff says:

    Alex is a very good director. I remember his cult classic directorial debut “Freaked”. If you like campy early 90s movies, it’s definitely worth checking out.

    I’ve loved KR, and he never disappoints. Such a good guy!
