Watch Our ‘Beetlejuice Beetlejuice’ Teaser Trailer Breakdown [Video]

Today, Warner Bros. Pictures unveiled the official teaser trailer for this year’s all-star Halloween-set highly anticipated sequel Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, reuniting director Tim Burton with original cast members Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, adding Jenna Ortega into the mix, and bringing the Ghost with the Most back from afterlife once again, and we broken it all down, including the many callbacks to original film and first hints that the new movie takes place during Halloween.

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, Astrid.

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 Justin Theroux as a new character named Rory, as well as Monica Bellucci and Willem Dafoe.

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.

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

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 opens in theaters on September 6.
