The sequel or remake of an old and beloved series always has people grabbing their popcorn and rushing to the theaters, even if the said sequel had been promised ten years back. Bill and Ted Face the Music is finally set to start filming in January 2019, and boy are people excited for it!
Just like Full House and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, Bill and Ted Face the Music is another American comedy show that aired in the late 1980s. The television series is based on the lives of Bill and Ted, two teenagers who live in California. They prove to be quite the driven pair of musicians who wish to bring their band into the limelight.
However, unbeknownst to them, their band will be of great importance in the future. So the leaders of the future send a representative on their behalf, through a time machine, which appears as a phone booth. This representative advises Bill and Ted on how to complete certain essential tasks in their lives in order to ensure that the future will turn out to be as desirable and perfect as it is supposed to.
Two movies have been released surrounding the adventures and lives of Bill and Ted. Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, which was released in 1989, shows the two teenagers writing a history report when Rufus, a traveler from the future, teaches them how to use a time machine to go visit and understand these historical events. If Ted fails, his dad will to send him to military academy, hence destroying the forming and fame of the band and causing a problem for the future. This movie was very successful, and even led to a franchise complete with an animated television show, comic books, and even video games.
The other Bill and Ted movie, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, which was released in 1991, revolved around Bill and Ted being killed by robot lookalikes who had kidnapped their fiancées. It tells the story of their multiples attempts to come back from the dead by challenging the Grim Reaper to many games. The two teenagers, along with the Grim Reaper, find themselves back on Earth just before they’re scheduled to play a “battle of the bands” concert. This movie too proved to be a whopping success.
Bill and Ted Face the Music has been on the checklists of most awaited films, much like the last season of Game of Thrones and the new Avengers movie. The movie, set to be released sometime in the year 2020, is generating a lot of buzz among many people. With updates being posted on social media and other websites, we can see that everyone is excited. While some people may believe that it just won’t work after being delayed for years or due to the fact that the cast won’t be the same, plenty of people are excitedly awaiting each update. After all, everyone loves bringing back an old childhood movie which fills our hearts with nostalgia.
