In a glorious time of remakes and reboots, it's good to know that strange things may always be afoot at the Circle-K.
The last time we got a Bill & Ted film was over two decades ago!
Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey www.youtube.com
They embarked on a most unprecedented expedition to hell and back...literally.
So naturally, after 27 and some change years, we guessed that this would be the end of the Bill & Ted saga. But today, we learned that is not true.
The world is about to get a lot more excellent. Watch this special announcement from your two favorite dudes! 8.21.… https://t.co/tTttjrrmTd— Bill & Ted 3 (@Bill & Ted 3) 1553099402.0
According to CNN, Hammerstone Studios will begin production this summer on a third Bill & Ted.
And of course, our favorite co-stars, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, will reprise their roles.
"It is all because of you guys, and so we owe you a huge debt of gratitude and we wanted to say thank you," Winter said.

🤘Bill & Ted 3 is finally, officially happening 🤘 https://t.co/ghbanzMEq9— Dave Itzkoff (@Dave Itzkoff) 1553099435.0
The film will be called Bill & Ted Face the Music, and will shoot in New Orleans.
"Bill and Ted were told at 16 that they were going to be the greatest people who ever lived. That they were gonna write a song that is going to save the world, and it hasn't happened. And now they are middle-aged men. They've got wives who used to be princesses in medieval England who are now working double shifts at Denny's, they've got teenagers that are about to leave home, money is tight, and they've been chasing this dream, writing song after song, when somebody from the future shows up and says, "You have 24 hours. The fate of all of space/time depends on it – and if it doesn't happen now, it's never gonna happen." Bill and Ted are confused because they know they had to have written it, because after all the people in the future told them they did.. so they just must not have written it yet. So in their desperation they decide their only option is to go into the future – to when the have written it – and to steal it from themselves."

@Winter Just about the only thing that's made me smile today 👍— Mouth of Sauron (@Mouth of Sauron) 1553110989.0
"What follows," continued Solomon, "is a kind of utterly absurd, Christmas Carol-like journey through their lives past, present, and future. Their daughters (Bill has a daughter named Thea, Ted's daughter is named Billie) are also very involved in trying to help them."
"It's a total comedy, but I think it's really, really grounded in the sweetness that is Bill and Ted and the emotion of where they would be at this point in their life."
The gap between the films at the proposed release date, August 21, 2020, would be roughly 29 years.

Dean Parisot, the director of Galaxy Quest, is on board to direct.
"Dean is the perfect person to direct this, not just because of his body of work but also who he is as a person," said Solomon, on their choice.
"He's really funny and really absurd, but he also has a really deep heart and a deep soul, and he's had a lot of personal loss in his life as well. So I think he can blend the underlying deeper emotional track and the surface ridiculousness of so many parts of the story that he is just literally exactly the right person."
