‘Bill and Ted 3’: Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter Reveal What the Proposed Sequel Has in Common With ‘A Christmas Carol’

"Everybody's a little older now," says Reeves. "A little afraid."

Having gone on both an “Excellent Adventure” and “Bogus Journey,” Bill and Ted might appear to be done traveling together. Not so, according to Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter, who spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the long-rumored “Bill and Ted 3,” also known as “Bill and Ted Face the Music,” which co-writer Ed Solomon likened to “A Christmas Carol.”

“You’re told you’re gonna save the world,” said Chris Matheson, who co-wrote the first two films with Solomon. “And now you’re 50 and you haven’t done it. Now they’re married, and it affects their marriages, and it affects their relationships with their kids, and it affects their everything.”

“Everybody’s a little older now,” Reeves added. “A little afraid.”

“There’s certain comparisons,” Winter said. “A rock band that never goes to the place it thought it was going to get to. Having that moment in their life of going: ‘Do we try to get there, or give up the dream?’”

“I love the characters so much — who they are, the spirit of their voice that Chris and Ed have given [them],” Reeves said. “You can’t go wrong with: ‘Be excellent to each other.’ And: ‘Party on!’ I mean, it might actually be the beginning, one of the first examples of contemporary modern apocalyptic art.”
