It’s show time!
Beetlejuice was launched in 1988 and has been a huge influence ever since. It’s 2023 and spectators are still waiting for the sequel. So, there have been some updates about a sequel, which we’ll look at.
When deceased couple Adam and Barbara can’t frighten the family that moved into their old house in the original movie, they enlist the help of the exorcist Betelgeuse.
Beetlejuice 2 has been in talks since the original movie’s release and success. But now we’ll see if there will actually be a sequel and what happens.
Does Beetlejuice 2 happen?
One of the direct questions is whether or not “Beetlejuice 2” will happen. This happens mostly!
A sequel was announced in February 2023, this time co-produced by Plan B Entertainment and Warner Bros. , with Keaton and Ryder reprise their roles. It was also revealed that principal photography will begin the following year.
The film is still in its early stages, according to reports. In 2016, Tom Burton stated, “It’s something I’d really like to do in the right circumstances, but it’s one of those movies where it has to be right. It’s not the kind of movie that screams [for a sequel]It’s not the Beetlejuice trilogy.
So it’s a thing if the stuff is right – because I love the character and Michael is amazing with that character, so yeah we’ll see. But there is nothing concrete yet.”
The director scoffed at working on ideas for a sequel
Recently, Tim Burton teased an outlet about working on some ideas for the sequel. They also mentioned that in the early days.
“I only know if I’m making a movie when I’m actually on set. I try to get back to the root of everything. It stems from a seed and then grows, not from these phrases. I’m working on ideas and things but it’s all too early. We’ll figure out how It’s going. How’s that for an answer to nothing?”
Danny Elfman said in 2019, “Last… a year ago, I saw Michael Keaton, and he mentioned ‘So, we’re doing Beetlejuice 2?'” And I said, ‘Well, you know more than I do. “I haven’t heard anything from her since then.”
Adding, “The projects will be in development for a very long time. So I think it’s something that was developed a few years ago, but I don’t know where it is in the process. I’m always the last to hear, believe me.”
A lot of times I’ll hear about any movie Tim is doing, it’s kinda funny because he’ll call me and say “Danny, I’m doing such and such a movie, would you like to join the board?” And I actually read about it in Variety a couple of weeks ago. So I’m not the first to hear about things, let me describe it that way.”
Geena Davis would like to “reconsider”
Grena Davis has expressed her desire to return to the world. Davis said she “of course would like to come back.”
She then added, “I want to play every character I’ve played again. I have a feeling ghosts don’t age. How do they explain that they’re older?”
Michael Keaton also spoke of happily returning to Beetlejuice 2.
“I think it’s like a little piece of art that you better get it right if you do it all over again. Otherwise, you kind of don’t touch it.”
In another interview from a long time ago, he said, “I’ve always said it’s the only thing I’d do again if I did anything again. But it takes Tim to be involved somehow. Now he seems to be involved.”
Without giving away too much, we talked to each other and emailed each other, and if he was around, it would be hard not to share.”
Obviously knowing it’s still in its early stages means that it will take some time before onlookers can watch. But we’ll keep you posted on more events related to the sequel in the coming days.
