Can you smell that? Yes. That scent of VHS tapes and jelly shoes. That’s ’90s nostalgia and it is coming for us all. First, The ’70s Show got rebooted with That ’90s Show. Next, Warheads got a hard seltzer. Not to mention, Yellowjackets is bringing us all the way into those halcyon days. Well, that is not all folks. Because a Beavis and Butt-Head movie is heading to Paramount+. That’s right, Beavis and Butt-Head is getting a revival movie and possibly a few other things. And now, we have our first look at the revival movie and it’s… fascinating. And it possibly creates the Beavis and Butt-Head multiverse and we don’t know if anyone is ready for that.
According to the synopsis for the upcoming Beavis and Butt-Head revival movie, Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe, we’re getting Beavis and Butt-Head plus space, time-travel, and alternate universes. Which is a lot of Beavis and Butt-Head. But we guess traveling through the multiverse is in vogue these days. And who are we to stand in the way of adventure… Especially on that involves the Deep State and iPhone shenanigans.
In perhaps the dumbest space movie ever made, Beavis and Butt-head are sentenced to Space Camp by a “creative” judge in 1998, leading to a trip on the Space Shuttle, with predictably disastrous results. After going through a black hole, they reemerge in our time, where they look for love, misuse iPhones, and are hunted by the Deep State. Spoiler: They don’t score.
A new clip from the movie reveals one of the Beavis and Butt-Head variants we’ll meet, Smart Beavis and Smart Butt-Head. These versions of our main characters kind of remind us of The Watcher from the MCU. Definitely not our typical duo. They even use words like “droll” and “whimsical.”
And they let us know we’re actually looking at the Beavis and Butt-Head multiverse. The two explain, “In infinite universes, there are infinite iterations of every person. Every possible version of you exists.” A concept we are definitely, definitely not ready for. We don’t know what will happen if all the variants in this universe meet, but we know it will probably get messy.
If that wasn’t enough, we’ll even get to see Beavis and Butt-Head are all grown up. Yes. The multiverse is showing us the future of our leads. Strap in folks, this ride might be one very bumpy ride we’re about to go on. But go on it we will.
In its own words, Beavis and Butt-Head stars two “dumb, crude, ugly, thoughtless…fools. But for some reason the (boys) make us laugh.” And now they’ll greet us in their adult forms. Is this the energy we need in 2022? Hard to say. But we guess we will get it regardless. Hopefully, the show can grow with the times. Then again, maybe that won’t exactly be its calling. Both our leads look like they haven’t aged a day, in some ways. But looks can always deceive. That said, we did see the probing jokes in the revival trailer. So… we’ll just try to appreciate it for what it is.
We guess ’90s nostalgia means something for everyone. And, for some of us, that comes in the form of this duo. We do have to say, it seems sweet the pair stuck together after all this time. A true soul mate situation. And isn’t that really the best friend dream? Sticking together, braving the decades? Traveling through time and space itself together? Meeting older versions of yourself and god knows what else?
Beavis and Butt-Head will be returning this year with a brand new movie and more on Paramount+. No exact date yet, but soon. They need some time to get back in shape. pic.twitter.com/tN5rePP9Kn— Mike Judge (@MikeJudge) January 5, 2022
Mike Judge, the creator of the series, teased that fans would receive a movie “and more.” But for now, Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe is more than enough.
So as we head back to the ’90s, this revival movie will head forward to 2022. We guess we’ll all meet somewhere in the middle. Seems fitting in its way. The Beavis and Butt-Head revival movie will be coming to Paramount+ on June 28th. And we’ll just be sitting here in every universe we inhabit, counting down the days.
