Alex Winter Shares Lost Photos From Original BILL AND TED

“Catch you later, Bill and Ted!”

Almost three decades after their music promised to save the universe, we really will get to catch up with our favorite pair of clueless rockers again. We’re headed for a most excellent adventure with the Wyld Stallyns in Bill & Ted 3. No way? Yes way! What happened to Theodore “Ted” Logan and Bill S. Preston Esq., over the years? Which old faces will join them for their next journey? Here’s everything we know about the film so far.

UPDATE: Lost Images from the First Film

Okay, technically this isn’t an update for Bill & Ted Face the Music, but it’s still a must-see for fans of the franchise. Alex Winter has shared some never-before-seen photos from the making of the original film. It includes behind-the-scene images of the cast having fun, along with a look at deleted scenes from the movie.

Looking Sharp!

A new image from the film shows Bill and Ted all dressed up for a formal occasion. Both stars are decked out in very colorful suits. We don’t know exactly what event they are attending, but the decor hints at this being a wedding. Could this scene feature the nuptials of their daughters, who are both set to play important roles in the film? If it is, think the wedding band is any good?

The photo also comes with a new synopsis.

“The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of the now middle aged best friends as they set out on a new adventure to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe, helped by their daughters (played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine), a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends.”

Bill and Ted Face the Music has released a new official image for the film. It features the duo with their daughters, played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine, in a garage.

The first look at Bill & Ted 3 is here

The first look at Bill and Ted Face the Music has officially arrived. Entertainment Weekly released a trio of photos from the upcoming film, which finds Bill (Alex Winters) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) still on working on their Wyld Stallyns music. The photos also give us a glimpse of Samara Weaving as Bill’s daughter Thea, Brigette Lundy-Paine as Ted’s daughter Billie, and Kid Cudi playing a fictional version of himself, having been somehow roped into Bill and Ted’s shenanigans.

Um….What?

New set photos showing Keanu Reeves with the sides of his head shaved, long hair, and a big bushy beard reveal…well…uh…what the hell is going on here, exactly? We don’t know, but it doesn’t matter. WE’RE IN.

A Most Excellent Great Leader

Deadline reports Emmy winner Holland Taylor (Two and a Half Men, The Practice, Legally Blonde) has joined the cast as The Great Leader, “the most powerful person in the universe.” She rules from San Dimas, only she rules 700 years in the future.

Kristen Schaal Has a Message

The already killer cast just got even better. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kristen Schaal (Bob’s Burgers, Flight of the Conchords) has joined the cast as Kelly, a messenger from the future who brings a warning to Bill and Ted. Based on what we know about the film, Kelly could be the person who comes to tell the Wyld Stallyns they still need to make their peace-bringing music.

First Behind-the-Scene Images

Filming might have just begun, but it didn’t take long to get our first behind-the-scene images (featuring a clean-shaven Keanu) from the set. The Daily Mail released photos that not only show Bill and Ted with their time-traveling phone booth, but that reveal some of the historical figures they will be using it to go and find, just like they did in the original. Among this lot are Gandhi, Pocahontas, and Jimi Hendrix. Other images of the duo’s daughters, being played by Brigette Lundy-Paine and Samara Weaving, also found their way online.

Whether Bill & Ted Face the Music ends up being the funniest film in the franchise remains to be seen, but the cast is shaping up to be the best yet. According to Deadline, the latest hilarious performer to join the production is Jillian Bell (Workaholics, Rough Night, Brittany Runs a Marathon). Her role is still unknown at this time, but we feel confident saying she’s going to be amazing, because she’s always amazing.

Beck Bennett to Play Ted’s Brother! And Missy’s Back

The hits just keep on hitting! Today’s Bill & Ted announcement sees the return of two series staple actors, and a brand new actor playing a brand old character.

First up, Amy Stoch will reprise her role of Missy–I mean mom–the only slightly older babysitter-turned-step-mother of Bill S. Preston, esq. And then in Bogus Journey she divorced Bill’s dad and married Ted’s dad. Hal Landon Jr, who played Ted’s dad, Captain Logan, will also return.

Joining the fray is SNL stalwart Beck Bennett. Bennett will play a character familiar to fans of the series–Ted’s little brother Deacon. In Excellent Adventure, Frazier Bain portrayed the youngest Logan. Bain doesn’t act anymore, having gone on to a career behind the camera. Bennett however feels like the perfect choice to play Ted’s annoying, fairly douchey younger brother.

UPDATE! Bill & Ted Say Yes to Noho Hank

HBO

We love Bill Hader’s Barry, but the HBO series might not be one of our absolute favorites without Anthony Carrigan’s Noho Hank, the breakout star of the show. Now, according to THR, he’s the latest performer to join the cast of Bill & Ted Face the Music. While his role is still a secret, he will apparently play “the duo’s relentless adversary.” Give. It. To. Us.

It’s also hard not to fantasy cast him as Death’s son, which would be so perfect we pray to Station it will happen. Of course, we won’t exactly be bummed out if he’s related (or even the younger version!) of Bogus Journey baddie De Nomolos.

Kiddi Cudi Joins the Cast

Deadline reports Grammy-winning musician and actor Kid Cudi (Comedy Bang Bang) has joined the cast of Bill & Ted 3 in an unannounced role. Given his dual career both behind the mic and in front of the camera, as well as his charming personality, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him help the Wyld Stallyns finally complete their unfulfilled promise as peace-bringing rock stars, though that’s exactly what would make him a surprise foil.

Meet Bill and Ted’s Daughters

Bill and Ted won’t just be facing the music in their third film, they’ll be facing fatherhood. In news we first saw at THR, Brigette Lundy-Paine (The Glass Castle) has been cast as Ted’s daughter Billie Logan, and Samara Weaving (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) has been cast as Bill’s daughter Thea Preston.

So how far will the apple fall from the Wyld Stallyns tree? In a statement, producer Scott Kroopf said, “When we saw Samara and Brigette together, it was like deja vu. It was exactly the way we felt when we first saw Keanu and Alex.” You don’t have travel to the future to see that means they will at least share some personality traits with their dads, which is totally excellent.

Title and Premise

The third film in the franchise will be called Bill & Ted Face the Music, because it will reveal the now middle-aged dads never delivered on the promise of their utopian-bringing music, since they never actually got around to making it. Oops.

According to screenwriter Ed Solomon, the movie will see them trying to make that right; They travel back in time to watch their younger selves, which means we could see three pairs of Teds and Bills on screen together. Solomon said we’ll see footage from the original 1989 movie that has George Carlin’s Rufus and the Circle K, where strange things always seem to be afoot.

Writers and Director

The film will be directed by Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest), with original character creators and writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson both returning to pen the script. The duo worked on the screenplay for ten years, but they couldn’t find funding. Most people they approached wanted to do a reboot instead of another sequel, which would have been totally bogus.

Filming and Release Date

A very thankful and excited Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves announced in a short video that filming on the movie would begin soon with an August 20, 2020 release date.

Don’t forget to wind your watch so you won’t miss it.

Cast

So far the only performer from either of the first two films who is confirmed to rejoin the most excellent pair of Reeves and Winter is the Grim Reaper himself, actor William Sadler.


Solomon revealed one new character we will meet is someone named Kelly, “which is George (Carlin’)s daughter’s name,” and the character Kelly “has a very significant role in the journey.”

Also, bring back Station or we riot.
