Are You Ready For A 3rd Excellent Adventure?

According to Keanu Reeves, it’s time to get ready for more of the Wyld Stallyns. You remember…Bill S. Preston, Esq., and “Ted” Theodore Logan. Excellent!

Keanu Reeves told MTV that “Bill and Ted 3” is about “six weeks away”. What he means by this is that the first draft of a legitimate script for the new movie is almost done. This is great news.

Remember how we were all left hanging? No? Well here’s where it left off. The Wyld Stallyns were going to—or did—write a song that saved the world, but that hasn’t happened. Reeves hinted that the band has now become quite obsessed with writing this song, and since all of Bill’s and Ted’s joint adventures involved time travel, the pair is going to have to go back in time to fix this.

The franchise has also enjoyed success off the silver screen with two TV spinoffs. The first, a cartoon titled Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventures, involved the voice work of Reeves, and co-stars Alex Winter and George Carlin. Winters played Bill, and Carlin played Rufus, their time-traveling guide. The other, a live action show in 1992 that involved neither Reeves nor Winter, only enjoyed a short run.

It’ll be interesting to see how this third installments shakes out. Reeves and Winter are both in the 40’s, and George Carlin passed away in 2008. Still, the material was financially successful, was a lot of fun to watch, and writing a song to save the world is everyone’s secret dream, right?

As Bill said in their first excellent adventure, “I believe our adventure through time has taken a most serious turn.” Indeed, so, here’s to one more excellent adventure!
