Warner Bros. Pictures’ ‘Beetlejuice’ Sequel Gets Official Title With First Poster


The long-awaited Beetlejuice sequel has officially been titled Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, as revealed by the newly unearthed poster released by Warner Bros. Pictures today.

The official title is, of course, a play on the iconic summons that is chanted to allow the titular character to wreak havoc amongst the living — “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice.” Though a third installment has not been announced, this new naming trend may indicate a planned trilogy for the franchise.

The plot for Tim Burton’s sequel is still mostly a mystery, besides the fact that Jenna Ortega will play the daughter of Winona Ryder’s Lydia Deetz. The cast is led by returnees Michael Keaton and Ryder, reprising their original roles of the titular character and Lydia, as well as Catherine O’Hara. Newcomers to the franchise include Ortega, Monica Bellucci as Beetlejuice’s bride, Willem Dafoe as an afterlife law enforcement officer, and Justin Theroux in an unknown role.

Danny Elfman returned to compose the film’s score, with Colleen Atwood also returning to costume design.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice premieres September 6, 2024.
