Comic Con @ Home – Bill & Ted Face the Music Panel!

A few days ago, they announced that BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC is set to debut on PVOD September 1st, and, if you weren’t excited enough none other than the great Kevin Smith hosted a Comic-Con @ Home panel with all the greats – Alex Winter, Keanu Reeves, William Sadler, Samara Weaving, Brigette Lundy-Paine, director Dean Parisot and writers Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson! You can check out the whole panel below but here are some of the highlights. DUDE!

  • Smith said it’s an adorable, hopeful movie. 
  • Stay through the end credits folks!
  • Matheson/ Solomon talked about the history of the franchise a bit and how BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY was originally called BILL & TED GO TO HELL.
  • The idea for FACE THE MUSIC came about ten years ago. 
  • Reeves and Winters reminisced about auditioning for the first film.
  • Brigette Lundy-Paine had never seen either of the two films before auditioning. Only watched a quick clip to get the voice down.
  • Samara Weaving hadn’t seen the movies either! Smith was shocked. Weaving defended herself saying she was born in ’92 and it isn’t as big a thing in Australia – that it’s more of an American phenomenon. She said she realized how major the franchise was when her partner freaked out when she told him she was reading a Bill & Ted script. He then made her watch both back to back immediately and she loved them.
  • Dean Parisot said it was so obvious in the casting session with Weaving and Lundy-Paine read together that they were the ones and only realized how much they look like their on-screen dads later.
  • Winter noted that the script was very physical, much more than the other two.
  • Said they had a moment where they played rocker versions of the characters and they turned to each other and said “Bill & Ted are fucking back!”
  • Reeves says he never has more fun than working with Alex and playing these characters. Says there’s no other place he can laugh like this.
