Bill & Ted 3, or Bill & Ted Face the Music, has just released a new clip that confirms a cute little connection to the original movie.
We already knew that Kristen Schaal's character was named Kelly, named after the real-life daughter of the late George Carlin, who played Rufus in the first film and sadly passed away in 2008.
Now, the clip has revealed that Kelly is actually Rufus' daughter, as she turns up from the future in a weird egg thing and they recognise the familial connection. She then whisks them through time with her, for the plot to kick off.
That's not the only tribute to Rufus/Carlin in the movie, as the watch the titular pair are given in the first film also makes a return.
The threequel has had its release date shifted around a bit, and now it is going to come out later this month in cinemas and on VoD (Video on Demand) at the same time in the US. However, in the UK, the film won't be releasing until next month, and the marketing is explicitly stating that it will debut 'only in cinemas' here.
Bill & Ted creators Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon recently revealed a very odd coincidence they experienced while the first movie was in development, saying that they actually first laid eyes on their two future leads while in line at (where else?) a McDonald's.
Bill & Ted Face the Music is due for release in cinemas in the UK on September 23. It will be released in cinemas and on VOD in the US on August 28.
