By the looks of it, the outdoor scenes for the new movie are shot in East Corinth, Vermont – the same place where external scenes for Beetlejuice were previously filmed.

Beetlejuice 2 Behind The Scenes Snapshots

Among the leaked pictures are some behind-the-scenes photos of the stars and the crew as well.

One of the most prominent ones has to be Jenna Ortega in what looks like a wedding gown. She is also seen riding a bicycle in the streets of East Corinth. So, who is she marrying in the film? That’s a mystery on its own since other pictures have not been released yet.

Likewise, a photo of Winona Ryder dressed as Lydia Deetz has also broken the Internet. We know for a fact that she played that very role in the last Beetlejuice movie as well. And, even today, she looks exactly the same!

When Is The Most Awaited Sequel Beetlejuice 2 Set To Release?

As per the announcements so far, Beetlejuice 2 will be released on 6th September 2024 – a year away from now! Warner Bros. Pictures is the original and rightful distributor of the movie. Furthermore, the film will be available in theatres worldwide for the audience to enjoy.

Most importantly, fans of Beetlejuice (Part 1) should not miss out on this! The sequel seems promising since it has assured us double the laughter and fright.

The Cast Of Beetlejuice 2 

Along with many of the old cast of Beetlejuice, the sequel of the horror/comedy has a few new faces too. As we look at the list of its cast members, without a doubt, the casting directors have done their jobs marvelously. Each actor seems to fit their role perfectly!

Take a look at the following list to see who you’ll be seeing in Beetlejuice 2:

  • Michael Keaton as Beetlejuice
  • Winona Ryder as Lydia Deetz
  • Jenna Ortega as Lydia’s Daughter
  • Monica Bellucci as Beetlejuice’s Wife
  • Catherine O’Hara as Delia Deetz
  • Willem Dafoe

  • Gianni Calchetti

Beetlejuice 2 Plot; Will It Be Similar To The Previous One?

The exact plot for the 2024 film is yet to be revealed. However, during an interview with The Warp, Haris Zambarloukos, the cinematographer, described it to be “a story about a family”. He said,

“At its heart, Beetlejuice 2 is a story about a family. And now it’s 30 years later, and what are the intricaries and the human conditions in keeping a family together all the time set in the craziest world possible? That’s why I choose projects. That human connection for me is always at forefront.”

Compared with the original plotline, Beetlejuice 2 might also revolve around the story of two friendly ghosts, content to haunt their quaint country home and a gothic girl. We’re assuming, Ortega is the new goth girl in the sequel, taking the place of her on-screen mother.
