Looks like we’re really doing this. I’ve been skeptical about the stories of a third Bill and Ted, as those rumors have been thrown around for at least a decade, but now that casting decisions for the supporting roles are coming out, it seems undeniable. That phone booth is on a collision course with 2020.
Of course, there aren’t many phone booths anymore. I haven’t seen a Circle K in eons. And then there’s the most painful absence of all — George Carlin. The world has changed, and not for the better. Bill and Ted apparently failed to compose the song that would unite the world. And they’re, like, bummed out about that, dude.
Bill S. Preston and Ted “Theodore” Logan are now middle-aged, with teenage children, and disillusioned that they will never fulfill Rufus’s prophecy. That’s when a new visitor from the future arrives, and tells them they’ve GOT to pick themselves back up, take one more trip through time, and solve the riddle of that song, or the world is doomed.
This time they’ll have help. Bill’s rad wife, Princess Joanna, and Ted’s beloved babe, Princess Elizabeth, are still on their side — and they’ve aged well, with Jayma Mays just announced in the role of Elizabeth and Erinn Hayes as Jo.
Their kids are going on the mission too. Bridgette Lundy-Paine is playing Ted’s daughter Billie Logan, and Samara Weaving will be Bill’s progeny Thea Preston. Bill and Ted named their kids after each other, in a most excellent show of bro-manship.
What I really want to know is who Missy is going to be married to in this sequel. My guess is Donald Trump. Bill And Ted Face The Music makes Earth a better place next summer. PARTY ON, DUDES!
