If you're an 80's/90's kid, then you probably remember Bill & Ted.
Bill & Ted are two high school stoners (who we actually never see smoking herb, but let's face it... they're baked the entire time) trying to pass their finals with an epic class presentation. They are gifted a time-hopping phone booth by a George Carlin, and compile a list of historical figures for their report.
The film launched Keanu Reeves into stardom, but the other dude must have had a terrible agent, because he did nothing worth noting after the success of Bill & Ted.
Writer Ed Solomon revealed his ideas for a potential follow-up to 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey a few months ago and Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter helped amp up production at the rumor mill when they reunited for a photo in a phone booth in March.
Now, The Hollywood Reporter says the third movie in the series— titled Bill & Ted Face The Music— officially has the green light, and while no real details have been released regarding its production timeline, we were blessed with a synopsis:
Bill & Ted Face the Music will see the duo long past their days as time-traveling teenagers and now weighed down by middle age and the responsibilities of family. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it.
Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends, they find much, much more than just a song.
I for one, am excited. Although reboots of classic films like these can often falter. I'm hoping for a "yes-way" review before shelling out cash for a movie ticket for this one
