Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, which kick-started the career of Keanu Reeves, was released in 1989.

Actors Alex Winter and Reeves made the announcement of a third film in a short YouTube video.

The producers of the film, Orion Pictures, released a short plot summary and IMDB has it listed, with a release date of 2020.

“Two would-be rockers from San Dimas, California, were once told they’d save the universe during a time-travelling adventure, but find themselves as middle-aged dads still trying to crank out a hit song and fulfill their destiny,” the IMDB listing read.

As well as Winter and Reeves, a third cast member – William Sadler – was also listed, playing the Grim Reaper, reprising his role from Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.

George Carlin, who played Rufus in the first two films, died in 2008.

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure saw the pair of young musicians struggling to write a high school history report, when Rufus arrives with a time machine which allows them to go back to key moments in the past.

In Bogus Journey, both Bill and Ted were killed and had to battle the Grim Reaper to return to the land of the living.
