Here’s everything we know about Beetlejuice 2, the sequel to the classic 1980s movie, form its release date to cast, plot speculation, and more.

When many think of iconic gothic-influenced horror films, the original Beetlejuice is usually right at the top of everyone’s list.

The film, which stars Michael Keaton in one of his most notable roles, has managed to hold interest due to its cult classic status, counter-cultural aesthetic, and a somewhat recent musical adaptation that’s been on and off Broadway since 2018.
