Orion Pictures have released the long-awaited first trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel Bill & Ted 3: Face the Music. The Wyld Stallyns have finally returned!
The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. and Theodore “Ted” Logan. 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. And always remember: be excellent to each other.
Check out the film’s first trailer below:
Joining Winter and Reeves is a huge up-and-comer in Samara Weaving, who has made a name for herself as a modern-day genre icon with star turns in Ready or Not, Mayhem, The Babysitter, Guns Akimbo, and a small turn in Ash vs. Evil Dead. There’s also Brigette Lundy-Paine (Atypical) as Bill and Ted’s daughters, respectively. The film will also feature Anthony Carrigan (Zsaz in Gotham and turning in great work on HBO’s Barry), Jillian Bell (Workaholics), Kristen Schall (Toy Story 4), Holland Taylor (Mr. Mercedes), Kid Cudi, Erinn Hayes, Jayma Mays, and Beck Bennet. William Sadler is also set to reprise his role as Death alongside franchise returners Amy Stoch and Hal London Jr.
After Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, original creators Chris Matheson (Imagine That) and Ed Solomon (Men in Black, Now You See Me) have penned the script, with Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest, Fun with Dick and Jane) directing. The original 1989 Bill & Ted centered on two teenage slackers who were destined to write music that will save the planet and create a utopian society. Using a time machine supplied by the late, great George Carlin, the duo wanders through time and meet all sorts of historical dudes, and later even travel to hell and heaven in the film’s sequel.
Scott Kroopf (Limitless) will produce together with Alex Lebovici and Steve Ponce of Hammerstone Studios, with Steven Soderbergh serving as an executive producer alongside Scott Fischer, John Ryan Jr., and John Santilli.
