Death will come to ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’, as William Sadler will reprise his role from ‘Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey’.
In that film (originally titled ‘Bill & Ted Go to Hell’), Alex Winter’s Bill and Keanu Reeves’ Ted are killed by evil robot duplicates from the future and must beat Death at a game in order to return to life. In the end, they wind up winning at Battleship, Clue, and Twister and Death becomes their servant and joins Wyld Stallyns as they achieve their destiny to bring peace to humanity with their music.
Sadler’s return was announced via the movie’s official Twitter account:
