Back in March, it was revealed that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter would be reuniting for Bill & Ted Face the Music, the third installment of the hilarious time-traveling adventures of lovable metalhead dudes Bill and Ted. The announcement was shortly followed by the news that William Sadler would reprise his iconic role as Death. Now Entertainment Weekly has offered up the first images from the upcoming film, including a shot of Sadler as Death standing before the titular duo amid what is sure to be another hysterical quest for the unlikely trio.
Also pictured are Bill and Ted's daughters, played by Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving. As for Reeves and Winter, their characters are tasked in the new movie 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, the pair's band Wyld Stallyns wrote music that inspired a utopian society and angered villain Chuck De Nomolos in the process.
"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 EW, "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 21, 2020.
