Wayne’s World: director teases third film

It’s been almost 30 years since we’ve seen Wayne and Garth on the big screen, but they’re still quoted by the two. Wayne’s World movies on a daily basis, demonstrating just how big the fallout from Saturday Night Live has been over the past three decades of culture.

It’s long been known that Dana Carvey and Mike Myers worked together again for an Uber Eats ad last year, and given how much contemporary Hollywood has relied on rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia, it was surprising that we haven’t heard any reports claiming a third feature sequel was in the works after it aired.

Myers has been virtually absent from our screens for nearly fifteen years, and when he does appear he’s usually buried under prosthetic makeup, so a Wayne’s World 3 occurrence is unlikely. Original director Penelope Spheeris said in an interview with MovieWeb that she would want this to happen just to see how out of place Wayne and Garth would be in today’s society.

“I would love to see Wayne and Garth grow old and still be as carefree and fun as they were in the first movie…can you imagine how stupid they would look? If they were that old and act like that? That would be awesome. If you stop and look at it. If you stop and look at it.

If we’re being honest, though, a third Wayne’s World movie seems like nothing more than a dream for now. However, given how people responded to the first one, we may see the dynamic duo in more commercials in the future.

On Wayne’s World:

Wayne’s World is a 1992 American comedy film directed by Penelope Spheeris, produced by Lorne Michaels and written by Mike Myers and Bonnie Turner. It stars Myers as Wayne Campbell and Dana Carvey as Garth Algar, two slacker friends from Aurora, Illinois who host a public television show called Wayne’s World. The film also stars Rob Lowe, Tia Carrere, Lara Flynn Boyle, Chris Farley, Ed O’Neill and John Lithgow.

Wayne’s World was released on February 14, 1992 and was a box office success, grossing $183 million worldwide on a $20 million budget. It was the highest-grossing comedy of all time until it was overtaken by Alone at home in 1990, and it remained the most successful of Myers’ career until Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002). It was followed by a sequel, Wayne’s World 2in 1993.

In Aurora, Illinois, rock fans Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar host a publicly available television show, “Wayne’s World.” One evening, while watching a rock concert on television, Wayne and Garth discuss the possibility of organizing their own music festival. After winning a local rock band contest sponsored by local radio station WBBN (“Where Bad Boys Rock and Roll”), they hold a music festival called “WayneStock” in Aurora’s Canadaigua Park and submit a video exciting to talent manager Benjamin Oliver, who agrees to represent them.
