About Bill & Ted Face the Music
Bill and Ted is an American science fiction film series featuring Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves. The two actors play metal-head friends who travel through time. It is created by Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. The series consists of three films: Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989), Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991). Finally, after almost three decades later, the third film- Bill & Ted Face the Music was released in August 2020.
Bill & Ted Face the Music portrays Bill and Ted as middle-aged parents, who haven’t been able to create the song to unite the world. Certainly, they are warned by the future Great Leader and her daughter Kelly. They tell Bill and Ted that they have little time to come up with good music to save reality from collapsing. Subsequently, Bill and Ted travel to the future to find their song. However, they end up being hunted by a robot that travels through time.
Meanwhile, Kelly, from the future, warns her kids, Billie and Thea, about the issue. The kids travel to the past to form a band and make a great song for their father. But, Dennis kills Billie and Thea. During all this, Bill and Ted travel to 2067 and get a USB from their older selves to be played at 7:17 pm. Dennis appears and regretfully tells them about killing the girls. Consequently, Bill destroys the USB, and the two of themselves jump into the beam to travel to hell. They settle their differences with their Death and bring everyone back. In the end, the universe is repaired, and everyone gets back to their time.
