The first images of Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter reprising their roles in the Bill & Ted franchise have been released.

Photos published on Tuesday by Entertainment Weekly give a glimpse of both actors’ performances in Bill & Ted Face the Music, a sequel planned for 2020.

Reeves stars as Theodore “Ted” Logan in the franchise, while Winter portrays Bill S Preston, Esq.

One of the new images features both characters in a phone booth, while another sees them facing the Grim Reaper (William Sadler) introduced in a previous instalment.

A third photo includes Brigette Lundy-Paine, who appears as Ted’s daughter Billie, and Samantha Weaving, who portrays Bill’s daughter Thea, as well as Kid Cudi (who plays himself).

The Bill & Ted franchise began in 1989 with the release of Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, a goofy time-travel comedy that has since become a fan favourite.

A sequel, Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, followed in 1991.

Reeves and Winter revealed in March this year that a third film would be made.

Bill & Ted Face the Music will be released on 21 August, 2020.
