BEETLEJUICE 2 – Teaser Trailer | Jenna Ortega, Michael Keaton (2024) Warner Bros

Director Tim Burton has given his reason for finally making Beetlejuice 2, which makes the biggest character death theory far more credible. Arriving 36 years after the original movie, Beetlejuice 2’s story and characters pick up over three decades after the living Deetzes and recently deceased Maitlands battled the titular poltergeist. Beetlejuice 2 brings back original actors Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, and Catherine O’Hara in addition to filmmaker Tim Burton, with the upcoming horror-comedy marking his first sequel since 1992’s Batman Returns. While the details of Beetlejuice 2’s story have been kept under wraps, Burton’s decision to helm the film after such a long delay and gap between directing sequels makes the mysterious plot more exciting. In an interview with the British Film Institute, Tim Burton revealed the Beetlejuice questions that led to his interest in returning to the spooky world. Rather than rewatching 1988’s Beetlejuice to extract potential storyline follow-ups, the questions that stuck out to Burton were more removed, focusing on what became of the Deetz family over the past 35 years. Burton looked at the characters and asked, “What happened to Lydia… to the Deetz family? What happened to Catherine [Delia]? What happened to Charles?” Of course, Winona Ryder’s Lydia and Catherine O’Hara’s Delia are both confirmed to return in Beetlejuice 2’s cast. However, one character mentioned by Burton isn’t, which aligns with a popular Beetlejuice 2 theory.
