Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Orion Pictures has released three new photos of the cast of its sci-fi comedy, Bill & Ted Face the Music.

Another photo shows Reeves and co-star Alex Winter (Bill) talking to the Grim Reaper (William Sadler,) while a third shot shows their doppelganger daughters, Thea and Billie. played by Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine.
"The stakes are higher than ever for the time-traveling exploits of William 'Bill' S. Preston Esq. and Theodore 'Ted' Logan. Yet to fulfill their rock and roll destiny, the now middle-aged best friends set out on a new adventure when a visitor from the future warns them that only their song can save life as we know it. Along the way, they will be helped by their daughters, a new batch of historical figures, and a few music legends -- to seek the song that will set their world right and bring harmony in the universe," an official studio synopsis said.
