Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter Make Excellent 'Bill & Ted 3: Face The Music' Announcement

It's been 30 years, one month and three days since Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure -- here's when they'll ride again!

Excellent! Bill & Ted are back in the movie making business.

Keanu Reeves reunited with his fellow excellent adventurer and bogus journeyer Alex Winter on Wednesday to announce the impending arrival of 'Part 3: Face The Music.'

In a 30-second video, the old friends reintroduce themselves individually, before reminding fans "together we are Wyld Stallyns!"

"We are here at the Hollywood Bowl — where we'll never play — but we're here to announce something," teased Winter, AKA William S. Preston Esq.

"We want to say thank you to the fans," Theodore Logan (aka Reeves) chimed in, before alternating back and forth with his bandmate: "because it looks like we might... actually... hopefully... make a movie this summer... Bill And Ted 3... Face The Music."

"It's all because of you guys," Winter concluded. "We owe you a huge debt of gratitude so we wanted to say thank you.... and be excellent."

It's been 30 years, one month and three days since "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" in 1989, in which the teenage metalhead slackers discover via time traveler Rufus (George Carlin) that their music is imperative to Earth's future Utopian society.

Its 1991 sequel, "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey," saw the pair killed by robot doppelgangers, and follows their attempts to return from Hell with help from Death (William Sadler) to rescue their fiancees and win the Battle of the Bands that kick-started their Utopia-creating careers.

The franchise also spawned several video games, comics, an animated series, and a live action series (without any of the original cast.)

According to a press release, part three will finally arrive in theaters on August 21, 2020.

Also returning to the franchise are Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon, who penned the first two films.

"Yet to fulfill their rock'n'roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure, when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe," the synopsis reads. "Along the way, they will be helped by their families, old friends and a few music legends."

Sadly, the "visitor from the future" is unlikely to be Rufus; Winter had previously claimed the role would not be recast following Carlin's death in 2008.
