After the stars and creators of the Bill & Ted franchise have been teasing the release of the third installment for what feels like forever, Bill & Ted Day is finally upon us and we're getting a glimpse at the excellence that is to come. Soon after the clock struck midnight on the West Coast, the official Bill & Ted Twitter account shared the very first poster for the new film Bill & Ted Face the Music, which is set to arrive in theaters this August. Both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are back for this new time-travelling adventure, and it looks to be just as wild as the two that came before.
The poster, which you can check out below, features William "Bill" S. Preston Esq. and Theodore "Ted" Logan returning to the phone booth time machine that sent them on many adventures in their youth. The duo are preparing for one last Wyld Stallyns rodeo, as only their song can save the universe.

"The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of William 'Bill' S. Preston Esq. and Theodore 'Ted' Logan. Yet to fulfill their rock and 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. Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends - to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe."
