Meet Bill Preston and Theodore Logan’s children

Welcome to the new reality folks. Keanu Reeves has now played a Dad in not one, not two, not three, but FOUR films in the past five years. And yes, I’m including The Bad Batch among Replicas, Knock Knock, and now Bill & Ted Face the Music!

That's right! Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine have been cast to play the daughters of our favorite time-traveling bro-musicians. Lundy-Paine, who currently stars in Netflix’s comedy series Atypical, will play “Billie” the daughter of Keanu Reeves' “Theodore” Ted Logan, while Samara Weaving, the niece of Reeves’Matrix co-star Hugo Weaving, will play Thea, the daughter of Alex Winter’s Bill Preston. Based on the names alone, it appears Bill and Ted’s bonds are tighter than ever. As far as Billie and Thea's, that's anyone's guess, including whether or not they are gifted with their father's musical talents?

Reeves and Winter will reprise their roles as, now, middle-aged Dad’s who, thanks to a visitor from the future, are tasked with saving mankind by creating the greatest song ever written in order to bring harmony to the universe.

1989’s original creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon wrote the script with Galaxy Quest's Dean Parisot directing. William Sadler is confirmed to return as the Grim Reaper. It will be interesting to see who, from ‘89’s Excellent Adventure and ‘91’s Bogus Journey, will reprise their roles, including whether or not Annette Azcuy and Sarah Trigger will reprise their roles as Bill and Ted’s then fiancé’s Elizabeth and Joanna.

Either way, something tells me a lot has happened since we last checked in on our Wyld Stallyns.

Bill & Ted Face the Music opens on August 21, 2020.
