The much-awaited sequel Beetlejuice 2 will hit theaters on September 6, 2024, according to the production firm. Michael Keaton will reprise his role as the titular poltergeist in the film, while Jenna Ortega, who starred in Scream VI and Wednesday, will play Lydia Deetz, Winona Ryder’s character from the first film.
Tim Burton will once more helm Beetlejuice 2. After directing Disney’s live-action Dumbo four years prior, Burton would be making his feature film directorial comeback with this. Having been in the works for more than three decades, Burton originally intended for the sequel to be set in Hawaii. The current version of the project’s new plot’s specifics are still being kept a secret.
Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Catherin O’Hara, Jeffrey Jones, Alec Baldwin, and Geena Davis all appeared in Beetlejuice. The dead married couple hired the annoying and naughty poltergeist from the Netherworld to frighten the new occupants of their former home at the center of the movie. Since its release, it has enjoyed critical and financial success, grossing over $73 million at the box office. It later gave rise to an animated series, video games, and a stage musical as a result of its popularity and impact on pop culture.
