– According to Price Charting, the various Bill & Ted games are cheaply priced. The cart costs about $9, and the box and manual go for $22.99. However, it’s a horrible game, so do something more effective with your cash, like burning it with fire.
– According to Entertainment Weekly and other sites, Bill & Ted 3 is still on-track to be made.
