We’ve been hearing a number of rumors in the last few weeks that Universal might be considering bringing back the bodacious duo for one, final, final goodbye at HHN. From these speculative rumors we thought we’d look at why this might be the case with 3 reasons to bring them back…
1. New Movie
In case you’re the only person in the world to not know, Bill & Ted are returning to our screens this August with the third long-awaited instalment of their franchise. Bill & Ted Face the Music will be seeing the duo face the challenges of growing up whilst also a visitor from the future tells them that one of their songs can save life as we know it and bring harmony to the universe. As the franchise will once again be popular and will require lots of marketing, where better to market it then the Halloween event that has kept it going all these long years!
2. Weird Instagram Post
Yesterday on the official Orlando HHN Insta account they posted the following image:
Which is a weird photo to post, not least because Universal no longer has the rights to use the Bill & Ted image as the contract to use them was confirmed by the IP owner as being ended? So if they’re now using the images of them again, does this mean they have brokered permission to use Bill & Ted once more? Say perhaps for one last show in this big year….
3. Anniversary Year
HHN30, like HHN16, HHN20 and HHN25 is a big anniversary year for the event and 29 years since the duo were last on the big screen! It would be a sad anniversary if the time-travelling duo were not present for one final outing at the world’s greatest Halloween event.
The actors who played the duo and the supporting cast of characters nearly all still work for Universal, and as this clip shows, they would all be superb and fitting for a return!
So there you have it, our top 3 reasons why this rumor could be happening! Would you love to see the duo back or are you happy to leave them in the past?
Let us know in the comments!
Remember: these are just speculative rumors and nothing is confirmed until Universal Orlando confirms otherwise!
