Beetlejuice 2 trailer with Michael Keaton and Jenna Ortega has arrived

Beetlejuice 2 trailer with Michael Keaton and Jenna Ortega has arrived

Careful not to say it three times or a demonic Keaton will be at your door

The trailer for Beetlejuice 2 has arrived.

A sequel to the movie from way back in 1988, Beetlejuice Beetlejuice will star Jenna Ortega alongside legends from the film.

Yep, Tim Burton, Michael Keaton, Catherine O’Hara and Winona Ryder are all coming back.

Bringing back the iconic world, the sequel sees Lydia (Ryder) still haunted by Beetlejuice (Keaton) while her teen daughter Astrid (Ortega) ‘discovers the mysterious model of the town in the attic and the portal to the Afterlife is accidentally opened’.

And, of course, it’s only a matter of time until someone says that iconic name three times and the ‘mischievous demon returns to unleash his very own brand of mayhem’.

In the just over one-minute-long teaser, there’s only one line of dialogue: “The juice is loose.” Watch the trailer:

Alongside the Wednesday star, other newcomers to Beetlejuice include stars Monica Bellucci, Arthur Conti, Willem Dafoe and Justin Theroux.

Filming the much-anticipated sequel was halted by the SAG-AFTRA strike last year, with Burton telling The Independent that there was only two more days of shooting left before production.

“I feel grateful we got what we got,” Burton said.

“Literally, it was a day and a half. We know what we have to do. It is 99 per cent done.”

Keaton also said that the legendary director used practical effects in the sequel, similar to the first film, so no CGI here it seems.

“It has to be done as close to the way we made it the first time. Making stuff up, making stuff happen, improvising and riffing, but literally handmade stuff like people creating things with their hands and building something. F**kin’ great,” Keaton told Empire Magazine.

“It’s the most fun I’ve had working on a movie in, I can’t tell you how long.”

During an interview on Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show, Keaton said the sequel ‘is beautiful, physically’.

“The other one was so fun and exciting visually, it’s all that but really beautiful and interestingly emotional here and there,” the star said. “I wasn’t ready for that. It’s great.”

And fans can’t wait for the sequel to drop as they react to the trailer on X.


Many echo: “The juice is loose!!!”

As another puts: “This is going to be huge.”

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is set to land in cinemas on 6 September 2024.
