Interesting side note: The Real "Bill Preston" was "The 'end of film incarnation of Sgt Pepper' in "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' (by the Bee Gees), and normally the term 'Esquire' is reserved for those whom are already lawyers (usually for the rich and famous, the 'Esquire' is more of a 'bought and licensed title' than a 'born one'.

Also, Keanu Reeves character is billed as 'Ted Theodore Logan The Third', indicating Detective Logan would be "Ted Logan, Jr' (or similar notation)

In Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey, Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter and George Carlin reprise their respective roles. The film's original working title was Bill & Ted Go to Hell and the film's soundtrack featured the song Go to Hell by Megadeth, which Dave Mustaine wrote for the film.

he film opens in the utopian future that results from the music of Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves). Chuck De Nomolos (Joss Ackland), who detests this society, steals one of the time-traveling phone booths with the aid of two robots fashioned after Bill and Ted named: Evil Bill and Evil Ted, and travels to the late 20th century, with the intent to prevent Bill and Ted from winning the San Dimas Battle of the Bands.

In the present—three years after the events of the first film—Wyld Stallyns is preparing for a "Battle of the Bands"; and although Bill and Ted's current fiancées and former 15th-century princesses Elizabeth (Annette Azcuy) and Joanna (Sarah Trigger) have become skilled musicians, Bill and Ted are still inept. Despite this, the organizer Ms. Wardroe (Pam Grier) assures them a slot in the contest as the final act. Bill's stepmother, Missy (Amy Stock-Poynton), divorces his father, in favor of Ted's, who still suggests that Ted should go to military school, should they fail the Battle of the Bands.

Evil Bill and Evil Ted arrive and the robots eventually replace Bill and Ted, killing them by throwing the two over the side of a cliff at Vasquez Rocks. The robots behave rudely to the princesses and work to ruin the duo's fame.
