Some of the graduating class might not know who Bill and Ted are, but this is cool!
The third “Bill & Ted” movie is supposed to hit theaters this August. We’ll see if that still happens. Early last month, screenwriter Ed Solomon said the first trailer was a few weeks away, and we’re still waiting.
But co-stars KEANU REEVES and ALEX WINTER DO have something new out this week. They’re both in the new virtual graduation video for San Dimas High School near L.A. . . . the same school they went to in the movies.
There’s a 45-second clip buried 18 minutes in, where they congratulate all the seniors and mix in some “Bill & Ted” references.
First they drop a line about the “Wyld Stallyns”, their band in the movies. Then they talk about how “San Dimas High School football rules” . . . and tell them all to “be excellent to each other.”
You can check it out on YouTube. Search for “SDHS Graduation of the Class of 2020,” and skip to 18-and-a-half minutes in.
(Even in San Dimas, I wonder how many 18-year-olds got those references. The first movie came out in 1989, over a decade before they were even born.)
