Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is Tim Burton’s long-awaited sequel to the original 1988 film. A fantasy horror comedy, the screenplay was done by Wednesday writers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar based on a story by Gough, Millar, and Seth Grahame-Smith, the writer of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Beetlejuice Beetlejuice will hit theatres this autumn.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice release date and teaser


Beetlejuice Beetlejuice will enjoy an international theatrical release from September 6, 2024, onward. The film dropped a teaser trailer late last night, featuring some returning members as well as fresh, talented faces, along with new misadventures, involving the iconic, striped “bio-exterminator".

Beetlejuice 2 plot

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice sees the return of the Deetz family back home to Winter River, after an unexpected tragedy carves a hole in the family. Still haunted by Beetlejuice, a wary Lydia’s life gets messed up again, when her rebellious teenage daughter Astrid discovers a strange model of the entire town in the attic and accidentally unlocks a portal to Afterlife.

And since lovers of the OG film know how naughty and tiresome Beetlejuice can be if brought back to the mortal realm, it is only a short while before someone takes his name three times and Lydia is forced to face the jail-striped demon. And this time, his mischievous mayhem might just trump that of the first film.

The original Beetlejuice of 1988 followed the Maitlands demise and the newly deceased couple’s ardent attempts at chasing away the new owners of their house, the Deetz family. For this, they enlisted the help of human-exorcising demon Betelgeuse (pronounced Beetlejuice), and what resulted was a cult classic, full of inter-realm marriages, ill-planned exorcisms, and sand worms.

Beetlejuice 2 cast

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice sees Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, and Catherine O’Hara reprise their roles of Betelgeuse (aka Beetlejuice), Lydia Deetz, and Delia Deetz from the original Beetlejuice. Among new faces, Jenna Ortega joins cast as Astrid Deetz, Lydia’s daughter, Monica Bellucci as Beetlejuice’s wife, Willem Dafoe as a ghost detective cum ex B-movie action star, Justine Theroux as Rory, and Burn Gorman as a reverend at Winter River.
