Beetlejuice 2 finally gets a release date and Jenna Ortega is officially on board

Fans of Beetlejuice have received the long-awaited announcement they have been eagerly anticipating.

The initial film was released in theaters worldwide as far back as 1988.

Since then, the characters and narrative have remained inactive, prompting fans to relentlessly plead for a sequel.
Following numerous rumors and significant speculation within the entertainment industry, we finally have confirmation regarding the arrival of the sequel.

Warner Bros. has designated 6th September 2024 as the targeted release date for the follow-up.

That's a leisurely 485 days away, so it's certainly not a date you'll want to anxiously await.

Nevertheless, we can now commence an official countdown.

Interestingly, this release date aligns with Marvel's highly anticipated Blade movie, which might create some cinematic rivalry next year.
However, there is more news to share about Beetlejuice besides the release date.

The film studio has officially announced that Jenna Ortega will be joining the cast, portraying Lydia's daughter.

Winona Ryder, who played Lydia in the original movie, is rumored to be returning for the sequel, along with Michael Keaton.

Details regarding the plot of the follow-up are scarce at the moment.

The original film also featured Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O'Hara, and Jeffrey Jones in prominent roles.

The story revolves around a family who moves into a residence in New York City after the previous occupants perish in a car accident.

The deceased couple finds themselves trapped in their former home for 125 years, facing dire consequences if they fail to comply.

To live in peace, they are instructed to frighten away the new inhabitants.

They seek the assistance of Beetlejuice (portrayed by Michael Keaton), a ghost from the Netherworld, who promises to help them rid themselves of the living family.

The ensuing events unfold as a hilarious comedy that has garnered adoration from audiences worldwide over the course of decades.

Jenna Ortega's inclusion in the sequel is fitting, particularly considering her popularity as the beloved goth girl from Netflix's Wednesday series.
As Lydia's character in the original film was a goth teenager, she would be the ideal choice for Ryder's daughter.

When questioned about the possibility of Beetlejuice 2 in an interview with Deadline last year, director Tim Burton expressed an open-minded approach, stating that "nothing is out of the question."

"I only consider myself making a film once I'm physically on set, filming," Burton remarked about the sequel to his 1988 cult classic, which featured Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis.

"I prefer to return to the essence of everything. It starts from a small seed and then grows organically, rather than being driven by these statements.

"I'm exploring ideas and concepts, but it's still in the very early stages. We'll see how it progresses. How's that for an evasive response?"
