The bodacious film - which will see Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves as the titular Bill & Ted - depicts the time-traveling exploits of William "Bill" S. Preston Esq. and Theodore "Ted" Logan. The pair have still yet to fulfil their rock and roll destiny, but the 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.

Bill & Ted first hit cinemas with Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure in 1989, which saw the two dumb teens set off on an adventure with a time machine to help them prepare for a history presentation.

It was then followed up by Bill & Ted's Bogus journey in 1991, which saw them attempt to find and erase their doubles- created by an evil tyrant from the future.

Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves first announced that the show would be getting its sequel with a video announcement outside the Los Angeles Hollywood Bowl.

Standing in front of the iconic musical landmark, they said: "Hi I'm Alex Winter and I'm Keanu Reeves and together we are Wyld Stallyns! And we're here at the Hollywood Bowl, where we'll never play.

"But we're here to announce something. We wanna say thank you to you the fans, because it looks like we might actually, hopefully make a movie this summer!

"Bill & Ted 3: Face The Music and it is all because of you guys so we owe you a huge debt of gratitude."
