In 1989, Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan made their big-screen debuts rocking era-appropriate outfits consisting of crop tops, flannel, and ripped denim. But since that look doesn’t really fly in your mid-50s, the pair were due for a wardrobe upgrade. A new photo from this year’s Bill & Ted Face the Music shows the aging valley boys as we’ve never seen them before: in suits. You can have a look at the latest offering from the sequel below.
Although they haven’t changed their hairstyles in the last three decades, the boys sure clean up nicely. It looks like the photo captures the duo performing at a wedding. We already know that the sequel co-stars Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine as their daughters, Thea and Billie. Perhaps Bill and Ted are simply giving a speech at their nuptials, one that might invoke their famous motto: “Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes!” The instruments in the background also suggest that they’ve taken on work as a wedding band. However, the harp and gong would certainly be a far cry from Wyld Stallyns’ headbanging days of old.
Obviously, this isn’t our first glimpse at Bill & Ted Face the Music. Images from the movie began making their way online back in December. And with the sequel’s summer release date fast approaching, it’s only a matter of time before a trailer drops. Until then, fans will have to settle for a Wal-Mart’s recent Super Bowl commercial, which featured Alex Winter playing both an old and young version of Bill.
Bill and Ted Face the Music will hit theaters on August 22.
