Beetlejuice, which was released on March 29, 1988, tells the story of a departed couple who were living happily together as ghosts. Until a haughty family moves into their house. When traditional haunting methods fail to scare them away, the deceased couple resorts to conjuring a demon to assist them. However, things do not proceed as planned.
The film starred Alec Baldwin as Adam Maitland, Geena Davis as Barbara Maitland, Michael Keaton as Betelgeuse, Winona Ryder as Lydia Deetz, Jeffrey Jones as Charles Deetz, and Catherine O’Hara as Delia Deetz.
A sequel is now in the works, with Tim Burton returning to direct with the existing cast as well as new additions such as Jenna Ortega, Willem Dafoe, and Monica Belluci.
Warner Bros. has confirmed that “Beetlejuice 2” will be released in theatres on September 6, 2024.
