See Michael Keaton And Winona Ryder In Teaser

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice is back, back, back.

Warner Bros. has shared the first trailer for the upcoming “Beetlejuice” sequel, which will once again feature Michael Keaton in the title role as the devilish demon.

The sneak peek introduces viewers to the new and returning characters, before getting the first glimpse at Beetlejuice himself.

The trailer is set to a special rendition of Harry Belafonte’s “Day-O” as the cast is seen at a graveyard. Jenna Ortega is seen uncovering the model of Winter River, before the black-and-white-striped-suit-wearing villain makes his appearance.

“The juice is loose,” he says, as Winona Ryder’s Lydia is seen with a shocked look on her face.

The original 1988 movie revolved around dead couple Adam and Barbara Maitland (played by Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis, respectively) who enlist the help of the title character in order to help rid their home of the family that moves into their house, with disastrous results.

The sequel, officially known as “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice,” is scheduled to be released Sept. 6.

Who is in ‘Beetlejuice Beetlejuice’?

Keaton will be joined by Ryder, who played Lydia Deetz in the original “Beetlejuice,” and “Wednesday” star Ortega will play her daughter. Justin Theroux will also appear in the movie, while Catherine O’Hara, who also starred in the original film, will reprise her role.

There has been no word whether Baldwin will return, while Davis has already said she has no plans to appear in the film.

“Unless it’s a surprise to me, no,” she told in 2023 when asked about appearing in the sequel.

“But I think it makes sense because we told the story of the Maitlands, and in that world, ghosts don’t age. You stay in the same clothes you died in and everything.”

Willem Dafoe has also previously confirmed he will be in the movie.

“I play a police officer in the afterlife, so I’m a dead person. And in life I was a B-movie action star, but I had an accident and that’s what sent me to the other side,” he told Variety in 2023.

Two key stars from the original movie have died since its release. Glenn Shadix, who played trendy designer Otho, died in 2010, and Sylvia Sidney, who played the afterlife caseworker helping the Maitlands, died in 1999.

Is there a trailer for ‘Beetlejuice Beetlejuice’?

Yes, the first trailer was released on March 21. The clip gives a closer look at the new and returning cast members, as well as gets fans excited to see Keaton’s Beetlejuice on full display.

What we know so far about ‘Beetlejuice Beetlejuice’

The biggest thing we know about the movie is the fact that it’s being made. Plot points have been kept under wraps, although director Tim Burton did peel back the curtain a little bit, saying the new movie gets underway with a death in the family.

“That’s all I will say,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “There’s something that happens that sets things in motion.”

When asked if the person who dies is Lydia’s father, Charles Deetz (played in the original movie by Jeffrey Jones), Burton didn’t tip his hand.

“We’ll see,” he said.

How is Michael Keaton doing returning as Beetlejuice?

Burton said Keaton reprising his role is “a weird out-of-body experience.”

“It was kind of scary for somebody who was maybe not that overly interested in doing it. It was such a beautiful thing for me to see all the cast, but he, sort of like demon possession, just went right back into it,” he added.

Burton also said he and Keaton had tossed around the idea of a sequel for years.

“Unless it felt right, he had no burning desire to do it,” he said. “I think we all felt the same way. It only made sense if it had an emotional hook.”
