Bill & Ted 3 officially happening!

Hell, yeah! I'm not sure if we should be covering BILL & TED movies here on AITH, but considering each and every single one of us out there has not only seen the two films in the series, but LOVE them as well, I think it's safe to say we can at least share this news here today.

Turns out that Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter will officially be back for the third entry in the Bill & Ted series with BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC! This is real this time. This is no false alarm. Yes, after 27 years Ted “Theodore” Logan (Reeves) and Bill S. Preston Esq. (Winter) will return with the new film which is all set to be directed by Dean Parisot (GALAXY QUEST). The franchise's original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon have penned the script. 

Alex and Keanu via press release:

We couldn't be more excited to get the whole band back together again. Chris and Ed wrote an amazing script, and with Dean at the helm we've got a dream team!

Sweet! And not only that but today we received an official image from the studio kicking off the production (see above) and we now know the film's official plot synopsis which goes a little something like this:

When we last met Bill and Ted they were time-traveling teenagers trying to pass history class and win the battle of the bands. Once prophesized to save the universe with their rock and roll, middle age and the responsibilities of family have caught up with these two best friends who have not yet fulfilled their destiny. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends, Bill and Ted find much, much more than just a song. 

BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC is currently in pre-production and when the film is done and in the can (or, you know, the time-traveling telephone booth) MGM will release it in the U.S. under their Orion Pictures banner. Just like the original. This is all too much glorious nostalgia for me. But I'll take it. Gimme more, universe!
