Shout! Factory is bringing back Bill & Ted again.
The company announced Friday that it will re-issue Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey in a special steelbook packaging on Nov. 20. Originally the last of the movies in the Bill & Ted franchise (now a third movie apparently looks to be officially in the works), the movie sees the title figures have to find their way through the afterlife after being killed by two look-a-like androids programmed to kill and replace them.
The evil robot twins were sent by the nefarious Chick De Nomolos (Joss Ackland — Watership Down, The Hunt For Red October, Lethal Weapon 2), who wants to keep Bill and Ted from leading society to peace with their music. Along the way, the pair ends up befriending the one and only Grim Reaper (William Sadler — The Shawshank Redeption, Die Hard 2, The Mist) who ends up helping out the hapless duo against De Nomolos as the story progresses.
The forthcoming steelbook re-issue of the cult classic movie comes complete with Alex Winter (who played Bill S. Preston Esquire) and producer Scott Kroopf and a second, separate feature-length commentary from writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon. Additionally, the movie also will feature a retrospective on the movie that features interviews with Winter, Sadler and Keanu Reeves as well as the movie’s creative team in the form of “Bill & ted Go To Hell: Revisiting A Bogus Journey.”
