When Keanu Reeves first teased fans with the premise of a sequel to Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey back in 2010, he had them waiting on bated breath. As the years passed, hope for a third installment of the series waned. Then nearly a decade later, the sequel was announced in early 2019. Now, the Bill & Ted Face the Music Official Trailer has finally been released, leaving fans utterly in awe, the only response they can muster is an apropos “whoa.”
Bill & Ted Face the Music takes its title quite literally. The trailer reveals the plot of the trilogy-making sequel, revolving around a conflict of the duo’s own making. Tasked with writing a song to save the world, Bill & Ted’s tendency to procrastinate has their very lives in peril as their family lives devolve in line with the world around them. A rift in the space-time continuum brings forth a specter from the future whose ominous warning of the universe’s impending doom sparks the pair into action to compose its only hope for salvation. Bill & Ted must fulfill this heroic journey to save their families, the world as they know it, and any semblance of a future for humanity. Leave it up to fate to task two slackers with saving the world.
