* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Creator/KeanuReeves and Alex Winter are both willing and eager to make a third film, a screenplay has been completed and gone through several rounds of rewrites, and there is a production company willing to front at least part of the budget. Unfortunately, none of these are with the company that owns the actual rights to the franchise and everything has fallen apart over who pays for what and gets how much of the resulting pie.

* OldShame: For the longest time, Creator/KeanuReeves was worried his tombstone would say "[[IAmNotSpock He played Ted]]". Nowadays, it'd likely say "He played [[Film/TheMatrix Neo]]", though now it's averted since he's signed on to another sequel.
* TheOtherDarrin: The princesses are played by different actresses.

* ExecutiveMeddling: The sequel was originally titled [[DarkerAndEdgier "Bill & Ted Go to Hell"]].
* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Band!]]: Music/{{Primus}} appears in ''Bogus Journey'' at the Battle of the Bands.
* HeyItsThatVoice: In the sequel, an uncredited Creator/FrankWelker is Station, {{Satan}} and the Easter Bunny.



* OldShame: Joss Ackland saw his role in the sequel as this.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally the plot was to have them visit, and therefore accidentally ''cause'', all of history's greatest tragedies (the sinking of the Titanic, the crash of the Hindenburg, the Black Plague...).
** The time machine was originally a pick up truck, then a van. It was changed into a phone booth because it might have made the movie too close to a ''Film/{{Back to the Future}}'' ripoff. Now it's just unintentionally close to the TARDIS in ''Series/DoctorWho''.
** Eddie Van Halen said that he would have been glad to appear in the movie, but nobody asked him.
** ''Bogus Journey'': The Evil Bill and Ted taunt the real ones by saying "Good luck getting to the concert!"...then don't follow up on it. In a deleted sequence, they use devices to re-create the boys' Personal Hells (Granny Preston, the Easter Bunny, and Col. Oates) and send them after the heroes. Bill and Ted end up having to face their fears to get rid of them: Bill gives Granny her kiss on the cheek, Ted calls his brother and apologizes for stealing his Easter candy, and both boys treat Oates with kindness and friendship rather than terror.
*** At the concert, the evil B&T would repeatedly kill them, but use the fact that they beat Death at so many games to get resurrected.
*** Chuck was originally going to die at the end and go to hell with the evil Duo, where they annoyed him for all eternity.
* WordOfGod: The Evil Robot Usses were supposed to kill Bill and Ted at the Battle of the Bands, whereupon the boys would invoke their wins against Death to get resurrected. This part does appear in the [[ComicBook/BillAndTedsExcellentComicBook comic book adaptation of the movie]], which was based on an earlier draft of the script.
