Bill Ted HHN show

 

NBCUniversal has taken quick and strong action regarding this matter and also started a productive dialogue around future ‘Bill & Ted’ programming to ensure that all park visitors can have an enjoyable experience. This decision falls in line with NBCUniversal’s history of including groundbreaking and positive depictions of LGBT people across its brands.
