The short clip opens with producer Scott Kroopf recalling the audition process for the original film, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, and how, of all the actors they auditioned, Winter and Reeves exhibited the ideal chemistry. “Reeves and I had read together earlier, and then kind of got broken apart and brought back together again,” Winter says.
Kroopf then notes that the exact same chemistry was apparent with Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine, who were cast as Bill and Ted’s respective daughters — fittingly nicknamed Billie and Thea. But not only did Weaving and Lundy-Paine form their own triumphant duo, but both really took after their on-screen fathers as well: “I shadowed Keanu for the last year,” Lundy-Paine quips. “I was there in the kitchen, I was there in the bathroom, I was there at work.”
Bill and Ted Face the Music will be released in theaters and on-demand services on August 28th.
