Most excellent!

Fans of Bill and Ted, the late ’80s, early ’90s duo that traveled through time in a phone booth, will be happy to hear that they’re back, in “Bill & Ted Face the Music.”

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter announced the bodacious news themselves.

Having tackled time (in 1989’s “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure”) and death (in 1991’s “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey”), Theodore “Ted” Logan and William “Bill” S. Preston Esq. take on the universe.

The film’s official press release reveals the plot:

“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. Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends and a few music legends.”

Filming begins this summer, with the movie scheduled to hit theaters on Aug. 21, 2020.

“Bill & Ted Face the Music” is written by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, the team that penned the first two films. Dean Parisot will direct.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
