We’ve heard some rumblings here at HHNU HQ that Universal might be considering bringing back the bodacious duo, Bill and Ted. Nothing concrete has cropped up, it is after all so very early but plans are always afoot for the next HHN…
The rumor seems to be springing from a few of our sources that say that although there are no current plans for them return, it does appear that they surely can’t be fully “off the table” just yet.
The rumors we have received in this regard over the last few weeks seem to have been given a small amount of credence by the fact that the annual HHN surveys have been released to all those that had signed up to them. And the interesting thing about this is that they pose the following interesting question:
In my mind the above question has a simple answer but truly they can’t be wholly compared, but it weird that this question should crop up right in the midst of these rumors. Personally, I can’t see them coming back, in at least the short term anyhow.
But there could be bad news for the fans that wanna see Bill and Ted back in the Fear Factor/Wild West Show Building as it appears the Fear Factor Show has again been put on hiatus. These were taken yesterday:
Could this be the beginning of the end for this show or could it be that this show building is about to go away for rumored further expansions? Apparently, it closed in August for HHN28 and has never reopened…
On this and Bill and Ted we surely don’t know just yet but be sure to keep your eyes on HHNU as we bring you the latest news and rumors for HHN29.
Would you welcome the dudes back? Or do you think they should remain apart of the event’s past? Let us know!
HHN28 has not even started (yet) and we have our first proper rumor for HHN29! The rumor comes from Universal’s annual Christian Rock Festival – Rock the Universe.
For many years the concerts were held right before HHN usually in the slow weeks of early September. Last year the concerts played host to Steven Malcolm, Hollyn, The Young, and DJ Promote (plus many more). However, the popular concerts will return for 2018, but they will be moved to February, thus removing them from their regular Fall position of early September.
So why might Universal move the concert series? The only plausible reason can be that next year they may hope to expand the dates that HHN has been running. Pretty much every single year since the very beginning, this event has gone from a handful of weekends in the 1990s to now where the months of September, October and November are dominated by HHN dates. And whereas the calendar month of November is bookended by Thanksgiving and then Christmas, the month of September will now be fully open.
And if you think Universal would be crazy for extending HHN into early September (some 9 weeks before the actual date of Halloween) then we need only look at the house of mouse where Disney started their Halloween parties back at the end of August.
But there’s more, if they were to ignore this move and start the event in the same time slot as this year, that would mean the event starting on… drum roll… Friday 13th September. Which would be a great day for a certain Mr Voorhees!
Halloween Horror Nights possibly running into early September or even August!? Is this a good idea? Could they also tie the event into the Froday 13th and use Jason as an icon? Let us know your thoughts!
