Set photos of Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter filming Bill and Ted 3 have emerged!

As production begins for the highly anticipated third instalment of the Bill and Ted series, Bill and Ted: Face the Music, Reeves has shaved off his beard and obviously, he looks completely different.

Pictures of a clean-shaven Keanu were taken on the first day of shooting for the threequel and they’ve definitely got us pretty excited, if not slightly uneasy about the lack of beard.

Taken in New Orleans, the 54-year-old was seen doing one of his favourite pastimes of sitting on a wall, eating and smoking. He’s always at that.

It’s so weird that he’s 54. Fifty-four?! That’s the same age as the British Government announcing the cancellation of the TSR-2 aircraft project. The mind boggles.

But yeah, pictures of a beardless Keanu. Breath ’em in.

But on top of that, actual filming began yesterday – the 2nd July – and while that’s exciting news on its own, pictures from the set have surfaced online showing both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter in character.

The pictures show Bill and Ted leaving their trusty phone booth and yeah, it’s so weird to see them like this. I know that they’ve both aged well, but it’s still hard to see.

Time, eh? The b*stard.

In the film, Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine will be joining as Bill and Ted’s daughters as they’re taken on another adventure through time and space, learning that their music is the only thing to save the world. Weaving will play Bill’s daughter Thea, while Lundy-Paine will be Ted’s daughter Billie.

Amy Stoch, Hal Landon Jr. and William Sadler will also return as Missy, Ted’s dad and Death, respectively.

Pretty lowkey stuff.

Reeves has previously said that the film will definitely be a fan-pleaser, stating:

Over the years it’s been really nice to connect with people who love those characters and those films, and it’s been fun to hear from fans who have become parents who have shown it to their kids.

The ebullient spirit of [Bill and Ted], and the humour of the characters in the film, and the adventure they go on – I think it’s still funny.

Bill and Ted Face the Music will be in cinemas come the 21st August 2020.

Can’t wait.
