This year marks the 36th anniversary of the release of Tim Burton's 1988 classic Beetlejuice. To celebrate the occasion, the long-awaited sequel, Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, will finally make its debut in theaters. This new chapter sees the return of some of the original stars, such as Michael Keaton as the iconic demon, Winona Ryder as Lydia Deetz, and Catherine O'Hara as Delia Deetz. But the news doesn't end there: the trailer confirmed the presence of a cameo by Danny DeVito.

What is Beetlejuice Beetlejuice about?

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice not only reunites the original cast but also introduces new faces that will enrich the macabre and fun universe created by Burton. Jenna Ortega, Willem Dafoe, Justin Theroux, and Monica Bellucci will join the adventure, bringing freshness and new plots to the plot. In the trailer, DeVito appears among the dead, an unsurprising cameo given his history with Tim Burton and Michael Keaton. In 1992, DeVito played the Penguin in Batman Returns, directed by Burton, alongside Keaton's Batman. DeVito's presence in the sequel can only cheer up fans of the actor and the director.

The official synopsis reads: “Beetlejuice is back! After an unexpected family tragedy, three generations of the Deetz family return home to Winter River. Still haunted by Beetlejuice, Lydia's life is turned upside down when her rebellious teenage daughter, Astrid, discovers the mysterious model of the city in the attic, and the portal to the Afterlife is accidentally opened. With trouble brewing in both kingdoms, it's only a matter of time before someone says Beetlejuice's name three times and the mischievous demon returns to unleash his very own brand of chaos.”

Tim Burton directs the film based on a screenplay by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Wednesday), from a story by Gough, Millar, and Seth Grahame-Smith (The LEGO Batman Movie). Producers include Marc Toberoff, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Tommy Harper, and Burton himself. The executive producers also include notable names such as Brad Pitt and David Katzenberg.
