In 1988, Tim Burton’s newest movie came out, and little did he know what a cult classic it would become. That movie was Beetlejuice.

Beetlejuice starred Michael Keaton as the titular spirit who is hired by recently deceased couple, Adam and Barbara — played by Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis. Adam and Barbara are intent on driving out the New York City couple that has moved into their house.

Beetlejuice was an immediate hit, making more than $75 million when its budget was just $15 million. The film also won the Academy Award for Best Makeup.

It’s been nearly 40 years since director Tim Burton’s classic hit theaters, but that doesn’t mean it is any less popular. In fact, it is so popular that it has been made into a Broadway musical. And now, we are excitedly awaiting the sequel film, which is currently in production!

Back in November 2023, Burton confirmed that the sequel film was in the works. Now, we not only have a title, but we also have a first look and a release date! It is a great time to be a Beetlejuice fan! Or should we say Beetlejuice Beetlejuice (2024), since that is the name of the new film!

Warner Bros. recently shared an image on X (formerly Twitter). The image showed Beetlejuice holding a long number. You may remember that at the end of the first film, Beetlejuice is given a number when he gets to the afterlife waiting room. However, in this poster, the numbers 9, 06, and 24 are highlighted — giving us the release date!

Dare you to say it again. #Beetlejuice #Beetlejuice – Only in theaters September 6.

In addition to seeing Michael Keaton return as Beetlejuice, more of the original film’s stars are set to come back! Winona Ryder will return as Lydia Deetz and Catherine O’Hara will be back as Delia Deetz. However, it does not look like Alec Baldwin or Geena Davis will be back.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice will also star Wednesday actress Jenna Ortega as Lydia’s daughter, Astrid. Monica Bellucci will star as Beetlejuice’s wife. Justin Theroux and Willem Dafoe are also set to star in the film, but their roles are not known at this time.
