I need to get some more Bill & Ted images in my library.

With so many choices in Hollywood today being made for the sake of token representation instead of the needs of the story or adaptation fidelity news that Bill S. Preston, Esq. and Ted “Theodore” Logan would be shown with daughters instead of sons in Bill & Ted Face The Music annoyed fans who were sure they had sons at the end of Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. Franchise co-creator and writer Ed Solomon appeared on Midnight’s Edge to defend the choice as a story decision and that they never really stated what gender “little Bill” and “little Ted” were. This article includes a summary of the interview if you don’t want to watch the video but they have that up there as well.

    Yes, I think it should work out with this new Bill and Ted movie having their children be daughters instead of sons. It adds a different dimension to the film. The new Bill and Ted movie sounds like a nice escape from our current reality!

    • There is still some concern from one person I follow that it’s still going in the “woke” direction based on Solomon’s supposedly (I haven’t seen them) politically charged tweets and just the direction Hollywood’s going lately. He did bring up one question that was in the back of my mind during the interview: what was so hard about writing sons? Otherwise I’m taking a wait and see approach.
