AceShowbiz - The first official trailer of "Bill & Ted Face the Music" is here for fans' viewing pleasure. Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprise their roles as William "Bill" S. Preston Esq. and Theodore "Ted" Logan, respectively, who go on a mission to save the world.
The video begins as the duo are summoned by a floating, robed council of future people, who try to hold them accountable of their promise to unite all people in peace and harmony with their music. Instead of writing the song that will change the world, they decide to steal it from their future selves.
"Bill, we've spent our whole life trying to write the song that will unite the world," Ted says in the video. "Why can't we just go to the future when we have written it?" Bill continues his friend, "And take it from ourselves!" But Ted seems to battle his own idea, "But isn't that stealing?" Bill argues, "How is that stealing if we're stealing it from ourselves, dude?"
So it begins their new time-traveling journey that brings him to meet an alternate and shocking version of themselves, Prison Bill and Prison Ted, who are buffed and clad in tattoos.
Bill and Ted will be joined by their daughters this time, played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine, as well as new historical figures, familiar faces and a few music legends. Meanwhile, William Sadler returns as Grim Reaper.
Directed by Dean Parisot ("Galaxy Quest"), the sci-fi comedy film also stars Kid Cudi, Kristen Schaal, Holland Taylor, Jillian Bell, Anthony Carrigan, Jayma Mays, Erinn Hays, Hal Landon Jr., Amy Stotch and Beck Bennett among others. The new "Bill & Ted" sequel is scheduled to open in theaters on August 21.
