Keanu Reeves & Alex Winter Offer A Most Excellent Graduation Message To San Dimas High School
Fans of the Bill & Ted movies know that the duo famously went to San Dimas high school. With social distancing guidelines still in effect for mass gatherings, the majority of graduations had to be canceled or postponed. San Dimas reached out to its two most excellent graduates who took some time to offer an uplifting message to the class of 2020.
In the short clip, the duo wish graduates good fortune as they enter the totally messed up world.

“We know it’s a tough time, having to do this virtually,” Winters said, and then Reeves follows with an “UGH.”
“We want to wish you the best of luck moving forward,” Winters said.
“Congratulations to the class of 2020. Well done!” Reeves chimes in.
It's slightly awkward, but a fun video nonetheless.
Bill & Ted: Face The Music is scheduled for release on August 21, 2020. THR offered this synopsis last year.
Bill & Ted Face the Music will see the duo long past their days as time-traveling teenagers and now weighed down by middle age and the responsibilities of family. They’ve written thousands of tunes, but they have yet to write a good one, much less the greatest song ever written. With the fabric of time and space tearing around them, a visitor from the future warns our heroes that only their song can save life as we know it. Out of luck and fresh out of inspiration, Bill and Ted set out on a time travel adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe as we know it. Together with the aid of their daughters, a new crop of historical figures, and some sympathetic music legends, they find much, much more than just a song.
In an interview with Yahoo in 2014, Alex Winter gave a few more hints of the plot.
“[Bill & Ted] will be 40-something and it’s all about Bill and Ted grown up, or not grown up,” Winter tells us. “It’s really sweet and really f—-ing funny.
“But it’s a Bill & Ted movie, that’s what it is. It’s for the fans of Bill & Ted. It fits very neatly in the [series]. It’s not going to feel like a reboot. The conceit is really funny: What if you’re middle-aged, haven’t really grown up and you’re supposed to have saved the world and maybe, just maybe, you kinda haven’t?”
“There’s many versions of ourselves in this movie,” he continues. “[It’s] answering the question: ‘What happened to these guys?’ They’re supposed to have done all this stuff, they weren’t the brightest bulbs on the tree, what happened 20 years later? To answer that question in a comedic way felt rich with possibility.”
