Bill & Ted Face The Music Will Be Released Earlier Than Planned

The latest movie in the time-travelling comedy series now arrives later this month.


Those much-loved metalheads Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted "Theodore" Logan will be with us a little earlier than expected. The duo return in Bill & Ted Face The Music, and it's been confirmed that the film will hit digital platforms, as well as some theaters, ahead of schedule on August 28.

The news was announced by actor Alex Winter, who plays Bill in the movies alongside Keanu Reeves as Ted. Bill & Ted Face The Music was set for release September 1, having moved back twice from its release in August because of the COVID-19 pandemic. A new behind-the-scenes featurette has also been released, in which Winter and Reeves talk about returning to their roles after so many years.

The full trailer for the movie was released in July, while the first teaser arrived a month earlier. The cast features a number of actors from Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and its sequel, Bogus Journey, such as William Sadler as Death, Hal Landon Jr. as Ted's dad Chief Logan, and Amy Stoch as Ted's stepmom Missy. It's directed by Galaxy Quest's Dean Parisot, and written by franchise creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon.

In an interview with Empire, Parisot suggested that much of the new movie takes place in real-time. "We've gone from a homework assignment to saving all space and time. We bypassed all those possible traumas in the middle," he said. "They have an hour and 18 minutes. So they're in trouble. And let's say that they have to travel all over the place to try and figure it out."
