Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice: Sequel to Beloved Film Coming in 2024 with Michael Keaton, Jenna Ortega, and Winona Ryder (?)


Lydia Deetz, the kooky hero of “Beetlejuice,” had a daughter. In a sequel to the beloved movie, that girl will be played by Jenna Ortega of “Wednesday” fame. It was casting that had to happen!

Michael Keaton will return for the 2024 movie. Winona Ryder? Geena Davis? Alec Baldwin? How could they not? More “Day O”? Yes, please.

Tim Burton returns as director. Cross fingers this is the best sequel of all time!

PS This is a good time to make the movie. Keaton is hot as Batman again, Ortega is hot, and “Beetlejuice The Musical” has been a favorite on Broadway.
