14. Legacyquels (Bill and Ted Face the Music)

Play episode

Welcome to the latest episode of the MOTION PICTURES podcast.

Your hosts, Carl Sweeney & Tony Black, are today focusing on the ‘Legacyquel’, the idea proposed by Matt Singer in 2015 of what to call sequels which arrive years, sometimes decades, later – such as the recently released Bill and Ted Face the Music.

They look at many films which qualify for this bracket, including Star Wars, Star Trek and Terminator sequels, and wonder quite what their prevalence means for modern mainstream cinema…

Plus! They discuss recent (as of September 2020) happenings in the Covid-era for cinema releases.
