Some movies, like Harry Potter or The Lord of the Rings, have attained cult status, and the sequels to such classics are highly sought after by fans. One such movie is Beetlejuice, the 1988 spooky classic whose upcoming sequel has garnered much hype. And turns out it isn’t just the fans who are super excited! Lead Michael Keaton, age 71, has recently spilled some details, and it turns out the fun is happening behind the camera too.
Michael Keaton Reveals All
Images showing Winona Ryder on the sets of the long-awaited sequel went viral a few days ago. Now, the lead actor, Michael Keaton, has opened up about the development of the movie. The actor stated that this was the most fun he’s ever had making a movie. The experience is very close to the one the cast had in the first film! The team is all about making things, improvising, and even crafting and building with their hands. Both Ryder and Keaton were part of the cult classic the first time around too, with Keaton playing the titular role and Ryder playing Lydia Deetz. Jenna Ortega, of Wednesday, has also come on board to portray the role of Lydia’s daughter.
Final Release Date
The release date of the sequel has been announced by Warner Bros. to be September 6th, 2024. This would cause the movie’s release to clash with Marvel’s release of Blade, a movie that also has been highly anticipated, so a bit of competition is expected at the box office next year. Director Tim Burton, who created magic from behind the camera last time, is all set to bring the magic to the screen again 35 years later after the first movie dropped. Let’s just say for all the fans who patiently waited so long for the sequel, Beetlejuice 2 is as good, if not better than the first one.
