Hot on the heels of a glorious first poster, Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for the long-awaited time-travelling sequel Bill & Ted Face The Music.

The follow up to 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and 1991’s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey comes 29 years after the last film in the series and sees Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves reprising their roles of Bill S Preston Esq. and Ted ‘Theodore’ Logan. William Sadler returns as the Grim Reaper, joining Brigette Lundy-Paine as Billie "Little Bill" Logan, Ted’s teenage daughter and Samara Weaving as Theodora/Thea "Little Ted" Preston, Bill's teenage daughter.

Bill & Ted Face The Music is coming to cinemas Summer 2020. Watch the first trailer above.

The synopsis explains: “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.”
