Death has apparently aged very well over the years. William Sadler, who played the Grim Reaper in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey and will now reprise his role in the upcoming Bill & Ted Face the Music, confirmed this on Twitter recently by tweeting out a picture of him all decked out in costume. Despite the last film occurring nearly twenty years ago, the 69-year-old looks as spry as ever.
This picture of Sadler in character has plenty of fans pumped for the long-awaited completion of the trilogy. In fact, one of the many people who are excited by it is fellow actor Colin Hanks, who responded to the photo with “Yes!!!!” The simple yet fitting sentiment was echoed with gifs and messages of support by nearly everyone in Sadler’s replies.
Death isn’t the only one gearing up for the new flick, however. Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves also both look more than ready to save the universe again. While the Internet has been lamenting the loss of Reeves’ awesome beard, folks can take comfort in the fact that Kid Cudi has reportedly joined the cast. Where the rapper fits in amongst the likes of Bill, Ted and Death remains to be seen, but it should definitely be interesting to have him involved. Maybe he’ll be a new member of the Wyld Stallyns!

The star-studded cast also features Anthony Carrigan, Brigette Lundy-Paine, Samara Weaving, Jillian Bell, Hal London Jr., Amy Stoch, Jayma Mays, Erinn Hayes, Beck Bennett, Holland Taylor, Kristen Schaal and more. It’s been rumored that Eddie Van Halen may even make a surprise cameo.
Unfortunately, George Carlin will not be part of the movie. The late comedian was a huge part of the first two installments of the series before his death in 2008. Out of respect, his role as Rufus is not expected to be recast.
Bill & Ted Face the Music will rock into theaters on August 21st, 2020.
