  • Comic-Con @Home was held virtually this Saturday. Reeves spoke on two panels with co-star Alex Winter. 
  • 1989 "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" was a time-traveling comedy hit. 
  • The sequel came out in 1991 titled "Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey" and almost 30 years later the third franchise film comes out!

The Canadian actor has many popular films under his belt such as Speed alongside actress Sandra Bullock and The Devils Advocate with Award-winning Al Pacino. However,  "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" holds a special place in his heart. The actor got emotional during Comic-Con when reminiscing about the movie and his partner Alex Winter.

"I can’t feel or laugh or do anything like the way that working on 'Bill & Ted' does and working with Alex. That doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world for me" said Reeves.

The movie hits theaters and streaming platforms on September 1st.

The first Bill and Ted movie became somewhat of a pop-cultural phenomenon. Keanu Reeves said he knew the movie was a success when people screamed on the streets 'Be Excellent!' and 'Party on!'

In the threequel "Face the Music" directed by Dean Parisot, Bill and Ted now in their midlife reunite to write a song that will bring together the World. They get some help from their daughters Billie (Brigette Lundy-Paine) and Thea (Samara Weaving).

During the panel it was also revealed that the movie will be graced with the appearance of George Carlin, who starred as futuristic helper Rufus in the first two films. Carlin sadly passed away in 2008 of a heart failure. He was seen as one of the most important and influential stand-up comedians of all time.

The girls who portray the actors' daughters had never seen the previous films. Samara Weaving said “I've never laughed so hard, just seeing Keanu Reeves go from John Wick to dancing around holding these insane instruments."
