Get ready to say his name three times because it’s finally happening! Warner Bros. has confirmed the much-anticipated sequel to Tim Burton’s 1988 cult classic, “Beetlejuice.” And to add more excitement to this thrilling news, Jenna Ortega, known for her dynamic performance in “Wednesday,” is on board!

Ortega is slated to play a pivotal role in the sequel, stepping into the shoes of Lydia’s daughter, a direct lineage to Winona Ryder’s unforgettable character from the original film. This casting choice not only establishes continuity with the first movie but also demonstrates the studio’s faith in Ortega’s talent. Furthermore, the original ghost-with-the-most, Michael Keaton, is also expected to return, promising a delightful blend of nostalgia and fresh energy.

The penning of the sequel’s script has been entrusted to the creative minds of Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, the duo behind the “Wednesday” series. With the release date set for September 6, 2024, Warner Bros. may be counting on Marvel’s “Blade” to shift due to the ongoing writer’s strike, potentially clearing the field for “Beetlejuice 2.”

The original “Beetlejuice” boasted a stellar cast including Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jones, and Catherine O’Hara. Despite its humble budget of $15 million, the film grossed $80 million, securing its place as a pop culture icon. Its enduring appeal has inspired various adaptations, including a musical and an animated series.

The sequel has been a topic of speculation for years, but this spring, the gears finally started turning. With Ortega’s involvement and plans for a summer shoot in London, “Beetlejuice 2” began to take a concrete form.

So, mark your calendars for September 6, 2024! With Jenna Ortega onboard and Tim Burton’s unique creative vision, “Beetlejuice 2” promises to be a thrilling adventure in the supernatural realm. Get your striped suits ready; it’s time to invite the ghostly chaos back into our lives!
