Grab your handbook for the recently deceased, because the ghost with the most is making a comeback! Yes, you heard that right—after 36 spine-tingling years, “Beetlejuice” is back to haunt, taunt, and flaunt his way through our screens, courtesy of Tim Burton’s genius.

Michael Keaton slips back into his pinstripes as the nefariously charming Beetlejuice, proving some spirits never fade. Joining him is the eternally gothic Winona Ryder, reprising her iconic role as Lydia Deetz, alongside Catherine O’Hara as the artful Delia Deetz. New blood—err, spirit—comes in the form of Jenna Ortega, introducing us to Astrid Deetz, adding a fresh twist to the Deetz dynasty.

The casting cauldron bubbles further with Monica Bellucci as Beetlejuice’s better (or bitter?) half, and Willem Dafoe as an afterlife cop with a flair for the dramatic—a “B movie action star” turned otherworldly detective. And let’s not overlook Justin Theroux, who’s stirring up trouble in a mysterious new role.

Classic Reborn

The original “Beetlejuice,” a concoction of horror, comedy, and the outright bizarre, became an instant cult classic upon its release in 1988.

It told the tale of a ghostly trickster aiding a deceased couple in reclaiming their home from the living. With its unforgettable characters and Burton’s unique storytelling, it wasn’t long before “Beetlejuice” transcended cinema to inspire a hit Broadway musical.

Behind the Scenes and Beyond

Tim Burton shared that the sequel wrapped filming last November, after a slight hiccup due to the SAG-AFTRA strike. With just a day and a half left of shooting at the strike’s onset, Burton and team eagerly jumped back in to bring this phantasmagorical project across the finish line.

“I feel grateful we got what we got,” Burton remarked, highlighting the dedication behind the scenes to resurrect this beloved story.
