‘Beetlejuice 2’: First Look, Release Date, Cast & More!

Beetlejuice 2 is heading to our screens soon, and we have your first look!

Warner Bros. has shared two epic photos from the new film, which is officially called Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice. The first shows Michael Keaton reprising his iconic role in a striped black and white suit, complete with his signature wild hair and blackened eyes.

Cast Details

Well, we know who Michael Keaton is playing…

As for the other cast members? Winona Ryder will reprise her role as Lydia Deetz and Catherine O’Hara will once again portray Delia Deetz.

Jenna Ortega will star as Lydia’s daughter, Astrid Deetz – this is Jenna’s second time working with Tim as he was behind the hit Wednesday series on Netflix. A second season is on the way but we don’t have a release date for that one just yet.

And Justin Theroux will play Rory – though it’s not clear yet who Rory is exactly! Willem Dafoe, Monica Belluci and Arthur Conti will also be part of the film.

What will Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice be about?

According to production notes from Warner Bros., we’re in for a wild ride:

“After an unexpected family tragedy, three generations of the Deetz family return home to Winter River. Still haunted by Beetlejuice, Lydia’s life is turned upside down when her rebellious teenage daughter, Astrid, discovers the mysterious model of the town in the attic and the portal to the Afterlife is accidentally opened. With trouble brewing in both realms, it’s only a matter of time until someone says Beetlejuice’s name three times and the mischievous demon returns to unleash his very own brand of mayhem.”
