It is finally happening.
Bill & Ted will reunite 29 years after the release of “Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey” in 1991. The movie series’ original stars — Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter — shared the exciting news in a short snippet published by Orion Pictures on Wednesday.
“We want to say thank you to the fans because,” Reeves told the camera before he and Winter dually announced, “it looks like we might actually hopefully make a movie this summer.”
The next instalment in the franchise is called “Bill & Ted Face the Music” and will begin production in New Orleans this summer ahead of its Aug. 21, 2020, release date.
“It is all because of you guys and so we owe you a huge debt of gratitude,” Winter continued in the video above. “We wanted to say thank you.”
The “Bill & Ted” franchise includes two movies about the time-travelling metalhead slackers, plus an animated television show, a live-action series, video games, and comic books.
