Orion Pictures released an official trailer for Bill & Ted Face the Music alongside a new theatrical and on-demand release date. The long-awaited third installment of the franchise will now be released both in theaters and on-demand through digital retailers on September 1.
The trailer above showcases Alex Winters and Keanu Reeves once again as Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan. The now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure alongside their daughters Thea “Little Ted” Preston and Wilhelmina Billie “Little Bill” Logan (played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine, respectively.) The duo is once again approached by a visitor from the future and is sent off to save the world. However, the only way to unite the world is through the perfect song, a song they haven’t created yet. They then hatch a plan to steal the perfect song from themselves in the future.
The movie was originally scheduled to release on August 21st, but due to the turbulent summer release schedule caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the trailer above just promises it’ll be out sometime “this summer.” Theaters like AMC are expected to re-open once again in late August after pushing the date back earlier in July. But there is a possibility the re-open date may be pushed back again.
The film will also head to this year’s Comic-Con@Home as a livestream panel discussion moderated by Kevin Smith. The panel will include Reeves, Winter, Weaving, Lundy-Paine, and William Sadler alongside director Dean Parisot and screenwriters Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon.
The film also stars Sadler, Kid Cudi, Kristen Schaal, Erinn Hayes, Jayma Mays, Holland Taylor, and more.
Bill & Ted Face the Music arrives On Demand and theaters September 1.
