Warner Bros. Pictures has announced the Beetlejuice 2 release date from the upcoming sequel to Tim Burton’s iconic 1988 movie.
What is the Beetlejuice 2 release date?
The company announced that Beetlejuice 2 will release on September 6, 2024, making the highly anticipated sequel just over a year away. The movie will once again star Michael Keaton as the titular poltergeist alongside Wednesday and Scream VI star Jenna Ortega as the daughter of Lydia Deetz—Winona Ryder’s character in the original movie.
Beetlejuice 2 will once again be directed by Tim Burton. This would mark Burton’s feature directorial comeback in four years after helming Disney’s live-action Dumbo. The project has been in development for more than three decades now, with Burton initially planning to set the sequel in Hawaii. Further details about the new plot for the project’s latest iteration are still being kept under wraps.
Beetlejuice starred Michael Keaton, Winona Ryder, Catherin O’Hara, Jeffrey Jones, Alec Baldwin, and Geena Davis. The film centered around a deceased married couple who called on the services of the obnoxious and mischievous poltergeist from the Netherworld to scare away the new residents of their former home. Since its debut, it earned both critical and commercial success with a box office gross of over $73 million. Due to its success and pop culture influence, it went on to spawn an animated series, video games, and a musical stage.
