The highly anticipated sequel to the 1988 cult classic “Beetlejuice,” titled “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice,” has been a topic of great excitement, particularly following Michael Keaton’s insightful interview with People magazine. Reprising his role as the mischievous spirit, Keaton, alongside director Tim Burton, shared their initial hesitations and the subsequent creative journey that shaped this continuation of the beloved original.

Keaton revealed their cautious approach, expressing, “We thought, ‘You got to get this right. Otherwise, just don’t do it.'” This sentiment reflects their respect for the original film and the legacy they aimed to preserve.

A significant aspect of “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice” is its dedication to practical effects. Keaton expressed a preference for this approach, stating, “It had to feel handmade.” He fondly recalled the excitement of working with physical props and effects, contrasting the modern reliance on digital technology.

The sequel brings back beloved characters, with Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara returning to their roles. It also introduces new talents, including Jenna Ortega as Lydia’s daughter, Willem Dafoe, Monica Bellucci, and Justin Theroux, adding fresh and intriguing characters to the Beetlejuice world.

As the film wrapped up production in Vermont last November, anticipation for its September 6 release grows. “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice” promises a unique blend of nostalgia, innovation, and the handmade charm that defined the original, standing as a testament to the enduring appeal of the story and its characters.
