Followers of Tim Burton’s cult-classic film “Beetlejuice” are getting a particular deal with this fall: Thirty-six years after the discharge of the 1988 authentic, Burton has filmed a sequel, and Michael Keaton is again within the title function. 

Based mostly on the trailer, the follow-up seems to be each bit as kooky, humorous and horror-tinged as the primary one. It is set to hit theaters on Sept. 6.

The official title is “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice,” which is little question a nod to the way in which you summon the ghastly lead character — yet one more utterance of that phrase makes it 3 times, which is when Beetlejuice seems.

Authentic “Beetlejuice” solid members — together with Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara, who performed Lydia and Delia Deetz, respectively — are additionally returning. 

There’s additionally a brand new member of the family: Lydia’s daughter, Astrid, who’s performed by Jenna Ortega. She’s an apt decide, since she’s already performed one other comedy/horror heroine, Wednesday Addams, in Burton’s TV present “Wednesday.”

The unique “Beetlejuice” centered round a pair named Barbara, performed by Geena Davis, and Adam Maitland, performed by Alec Baldwin, who lose their lives in a automobile accident. Now they’re ghosts haunting their outdated home, they usually’re unable to depart the premises when the unbearable new homeowners, the Deetz household, transfer in. They solicit assist from the devilish Beetlejuice, who (comically) makes the whole lot worse.

Since Geena Davis and Alec Baldwin aren’t returning, we’re anticipating to be taught that they made it out of the home, one way or the other. However there are another new solid members arriving, together with Willem Dafoe as a cop and former B-movie motion star within the afterlife. Monica Bellucci (Burton’s real-life love) will play Beetlejuice’s spouse, and Justin Theroux will play a mysterious character named Rory.

The sequel’s first-look trailer offers a touch at what would possibly kick off the brand new story. Delia, Lydia and Astrid stand by a gravesite with somber faces; may the story open with the demise of Delia’s husband, Charles, performed by Jeffrey Jones within the authentic? 

Leisure Weekly requested Burton concerning the opening scene, and he skirted the query, saying, “There’s one thing that occurs that units issues in movement.”

Within the second we have been ready for, Keaton seems as Beetlejuice on the finish. Have a look:

The white-robed choir on the funeral sings strains from Harry Belafonte’s “Day O,” summoning one of many funniest scenes within the authentic film. Although the trailer would not reveal a lot, it does seem to be the sequel may also put a foolish spin on demise, which is what the unique did greatest.
