‘Beetlejuice Beetlejuice’ Official Title and Teaser Poster Revealed for 2024 Sequel

Today, Warner Bros. Pictures has officially revealed the title of this year’s all-star Halloween-set highly anticipated sequel to the 1988 horror comedy classic Tim Burton movie Beetlejuice to be Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, and the first official teaser poster has been released online.

Burton reunites with Michael Keaton, back to reprise his role as the title character, with Jenna Ortega (Wednesday, Scream, Scream VI, X), also leading the cast as Lydia’s (Winona Ryder) daughter.

During filming last year, set photos revealed that the movie will take place during Halloween.

While Keaton reprises the title role, and Winona Ryder is also back as Lydia Deetz, the central character she played in the first movie, and Catherine O’Hara returns as Lydia’s mom, Delia Deetz. Jenna Ortega will play Lydia’s daughter in the sequel. The cast also includes Monica Bellucci, Justin Theroux, and Willem Dafoe, who plays a former B-movie star who now works as a detective in the afterlife.

Wednesday and Smallville series creators Al Gough and Miles Millar, who worked with Burton and Ortega on that massively successful Addams Family show for Netflix, wrote the screenplay, and Brad Pitt’s Plan B is producing.

Danny Elfman is also back from the original film, and his numerous collaborations with Burton since, to compose the soundtrack for Beetlejuice 2.

In the original film, a recently deceased married couple, Barbara and Adam Maitland (played by Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin) are impossibly irked by the eccentric new family (played by Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones, with Ryder as their teenage daughter) that moves into their home. So they contact “bio-exorcist” Beetlejuice, a devious ghost from the Netherworld, who promises to help the Maitlands haunt the house’s new inhabitants out of their home.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is scheduled to open in theaters on September 6, 2024.

With the tagline “The wait is almost over” and a reference to the afterlife waiting room where we last saw Beetlejuice in the original film, you can see the first official teaser poster below.
