The official Beavis and Butt-Head movie trailer arrives revealing updated character designs for the titular duo in the time-traveling adventure.
Beavis and Butt-Head are getting an upgrade in their character designs in the first trailer for their new movie. The film picks up sometime after the events of Beavis and Butt-Head Do America as the two are sentenced by a juvenile court to go to space camp in 1998, though mistake a docking simulator for something else and are chosen to join a space shuttle mission. When chaos ensues and Beavis and Butt-Head are left for dead in space, they fall through a black hole and reemerge on Earth in 2022, having to readjust to their new timeline and encountering alternate versions of themselves.
Mike Judge is once again leading the cast of Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe in the titular roles alongside Gary Cole, Chris Diamantopoulos, Nat Faxon, Brian Huskey, Chi McBride, Tig Notaro, Stephen Root, Andrea Savage, Martin Starr and Jimmy O. Yang. After teasing ideas for the project over the years, development on the new Beavis and Butt-Head movie was first confirmed in early 2021 with Judge set to write and direct and the film slated for a 2022 Paramount+ premiere. With over a year of production and development under its belt, audiences are getting their first proper glimpse at Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe.

The official Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe trailer is sure to come as a fun first look for longtime fans of the animated series. The time-traveling nature of the story may prove familiar for ’90s comedies fans as the prospect of two dimwitted characters encountering alternate versions of themselves is similar to that of Bill & Ted Face the Music, the well-received revival of the Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves-led film franchise. The trailer points towards Beavis and Butt-Head encountering both a haggard adult version of themselves, which Judge teased with concept art shared earlier this year, and a futuristic alien version of the two, though how they come across these variants is currently unknown.
One of the biggest points of curiosity is whether Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe will see any familiar faces from the original series, namely Daria, given the spinoff film centered on Tracee Ellis Ross’ Jodie is being developed as a film. With the film being set in the present day, it would seem likely they would be aged versions of the characters, but with Judge teasing that both it and the Beavis and Butt-Head revival show potentially setting up other spinoffs, the door is open for fan-favorite characters to return. Only time will tell when Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe hits Paramount+ along with the entirety of the original series on June 23.
