Bill & Ted returns with stars Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves, as well as franchise writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, for Bill and Ted Face The Music. The first film in the comedy/sci-fi series since 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
According to Entertainment Weekly, “This third Bill & Ted film (August, 2020) finds Winter’s Bill S. Preston Esq. and Reeves’ Ted Theodore Logan III still trying to create music for their band, Wyld Stallyns, which they learned back in 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure will inspire the utopian society of the future. “They were told when they were teenagers that they were going to save reality, and they’ve been working on it the whole time,” says Matheson. “Now an emissary from the future comes and says, ‘You’ve got to do it right now. We’ve got literally 80 minutes or all of reality will come to an end.’””
The pair are aided in their quest by their daughters. “The daughters really love their dads’ music and want to help them,” Matheson says.
According to Entertainment Weekly, other franchise newbies joining the fun are Saturday Night Live cast member Beck Bennett, who portrays Ted’s younger brother, Deacon, and musician-actor Kid Cudi. “He plays Kid Cudi,” says director Dean Parisot.
“He gets mysteriously thrown around through various times, because all time and space is coming unglued,” says Parisot.
Returning series veterans, meanwhile, also include William Sadler as the Grim Reaper. “Death was in the band in the second film,” says Parisot to Entertainment Weekly. “Things didn’t go all that well. But I’ll leave it at that!”

This is post P-90x. I’m saying I watched the videos. I’m not saying I participated. Born in my mom’s basement, I’ve stayed there to embody the stereotype. One day I will rise up… to the main floor of the house.
