Yesterday, the first official trailer for Bill & Ted Face the Music dropped. The upcoming threequel will see Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter returning to their iconic roles for the first time since 1991. The now middle-aged BFFs are set to begin 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 in an attempt to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe. Between questions about time travel rules and tributes to the late, great George Carlin, there's a whole lot to unpack with the new footage. In fact, the trailer was a trending topic on Twitter yesterday.
“Whoa. The wait is finally over, dudes! Keanu Reeves and @Winter star in the first official trailer for Bill & Ted Face the Music! Watch now! And remember: be excellent to each other,” the official Bill & Ted 3 account posted yesterday. You can check out the trailer in the tweet below:

Good Or Bad, We're In
I don't care if it's awful. It will be great because it is BILL AND TED THREE. https://t.co/QBK92I4AGq— David Quantick (@quantick) June 9, 2020

The trailer seems to suggest the subtext of this sequel will be about Gen X's failure to make the world a better place. So maybe instead of being years late it will be perfectly timed. https://t.co/tnOvme4BId— Keith Phipps (@kphipps3000) June 9, 2020
You had me at the Orion Pictures logo, which gave me mad VHS flashbacks.
Well, you actually had me at Keanu, but that logo was a serious bonus. https://t.co/JFUvVQmm1h— Stephanie Farr (@FarFarrAway) June 9, 2020
The best thing about this series is the increasingly absurd alternate iterations of Bill and Ted introduced in Bogus Journey and this new one seems to be embracing that same kind of weirdness. We get midlife crisis Bill and Ted and buff prison Bill and Ted. Cautiously optimistic. https://t.co/NJKrQQ41I3— Jay Bauman (@JayBauman1) June 9, 2020
