It’s been nearly 30 years since we were last in the presence of San Dimas, California’s most bodacious time-traveling rock stars. But at last, the trailer for Bill & Ted Face the Music, which sees Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves reprise their iconic Valley-guys characters, is here—and it introduces some new faces, too.

Back in February, director Dean Parisot said that in the movie, “we’ve gone from a homework assignment to saving all space and time”—and it sure looks like the Wyld Stallyns, now middle-aged but still excellent as ever, will have their work cut out for them.


Bill & Ted Face the Music also stars Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving as Bill and Ted’s daughters; Jayma Mays and Erinn Hayes as their wives (aka the Princesses, though the actors have been recast from the previous films); and, returning from Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, fan-favorite William Sadler as the Grim Reaper.

Bill & Ted Face the Music is due out August 21.

Cracks me up how brave Keanu is for diving headfirst back into a character that he’s basically been running from his whole career, insofar as early assessments of his talent went.
