Back in March, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter made fans' dreams come true when it was revealed that the duo would be reuniting for Bill & Ted Face the Music, the third installment of the cult-classic time-traveling series featuring the titular metalhead dudes. Also back for movie Numero Tres, William Sadler, who will reprise his iconic role as Death, alongside newcomers Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving, as the now-grown Bill and Ted's daughters.
Now, fans get a chance to really make their dreams come true because the film's producers are offering them up the opportunity to appear in the movie. All you wannabes have to do is visit Partyonwithbillandted.com, listen to the new demo track posted there — by Bill and Ted's own band, the Wyld Stallyns — and film yourself, family, friends and/or even your pets "rocking out with instruments, real or fake, or just the air guitar," as the contest description states. The submission deadline for videos is May 20th, 2020.
In the latest Bill & Ted movie, our heroes are tasked with writing the music that will save the world — and they only have 80 minutes to do so. As learned in 1991's Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Wyld Stallyns wrote tunes that inspired a utopian society and angered villain Chuck De Nomolos in the process. Based on the new instrumental demo — which is comprised of some fun, if very generic, Eighties-style shredding — they have their work cut out for them.
"They were told when they were teenagers that they were going to save reality, and they've been working on it the whole time," franchise writer Chris Matheson told Entertainment Weekly, "Now an emissary from the future comes and says, 'You've got to do it right now. We've got literally 80 minutes or all of reality will come to an end.'" He also claims the daughters' roles will be to help their dads in the adventure to save humanity.
Bill & Ted Face the Music is due out August 21st.
