Co-writer on the film, Ed Solomon, posted a video of the crew celebrating the end of production.

Bill & Ted Face The Music will see the Wyld Stallyns return to our screens for the first time since their Bogus Journey in 1991. Bill Sadler’s Death is also set to return.
Directed by Dean Parisot and written by Solomon and Chris Matheson (the minds behind Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey). There’s no trailer yet, but we do have a fair idea of what the film is about.
The synopsis for the film reads:
Once told they’d save the universe during a time-travelling adventure, two would-be rockers from San Dimas, California find themselves as middle-aged dads. They are still trying to crank out a hit song and fulfil their destiny.
Soon they are warned by a visitor from the future of the need for them to create a song that will save all life and the universe. The pair work with their families, old friends, and famous musicians to complete this task.
Samara Weaving, who plays Bill’s daughter, Thea, revealed to Comic Book that she’d never seen the previous films. However, when she told her fiance, it was clear she’d landed a good gig.
Weaving told ComicBook:
My fiance leapt to his feet and started doing the classic Bill and Ted impersonation and we watched all the movies five times and I fell in love with those characters.
I thought they were so innocent and, at this time, politically and emotionally, I think we made a really fun film. It has such a heart to it. They really see the best in everyone.
The time-travelling pair of goofs are beloved around the world. Ever since fans caught a whiff of them making a comeback, the reaction has been gushingly positive.

The world has been enjoying somewhat of a Keanussaince of late. Reeves is a meme-worthy internet hero, constantly circulating the web with nothing but praise for the action star.
He’s got another comeback on the horizon too: it was announced last week that Reeves, along with Carrie-Anne Moss, would be reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity for The Matrix 4.
Bill & Ted Face the Music is set for release on August 21, 2020. Excellent!
