Tim Burton is back in the director's chair for the highly anticipated sequel, "Beetlejuice 2," which reunites him with Michael Keaton after over three decades since the release of the cult classic. The film aims to capture the same spirit and creativity that made the original a beloved classic.
In an interview with Empire, Keaton shared his excitement about reprising his mischievous role as Beetlejuice and discussed the unique approach they are taking for the sequel. Keaton revealed, "We're doing it exactly like we did the first movie. There's a woman in the great waiting room for the afterlife literally with a fishing line – I want people to know this because I love it – tugging on the tail of a cat to make it move." This commitment to practical effects and handcrafted artistry ensures that the sequel will recapture the enchantment of the original.
Keaton's enthusiasm for the project was palpable as he described it as "the most fun I've had working on a movie in I can't tell you how long." The collaboration between Keaton and Burton reflects their shared vision and love for the whimsical world they are recreating, embracing improvisation and creativity.
Warner Bros. Pictures has set the release date for September 6, 2024, adding to the anticipation surrounding this long-awaited sequel. The cast includes familiar faces such as Winona Ryder and Catherine O'Hara, alongside newcomers Willem Dafoe, Justin Theroux, and Monica Bellucci, who bring their unique talents to the film. Jenna Ortega, known for her role in the series "Wednesday," joins as Lydia's daughter, expanding the narrative in exciting ways.
"Beetlejuice 2" promises an authentic and imaginative experience, paying homage to the original while exploring new creative possibilities.
