Beetlejuice Sequel Unveils Title: “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice 2024 A.D.” with a Nostalgic Twist
Warner Bros. has officially named the Beetlejuice sequel, and it’s a double dose of nostalgia: “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice 2024 A.D.” The announcement, made on Warner Bros.’ and the sequel’s social media, comes with a release date set for September 6. This choice aligns with the post-Labor Day box office tradition, previously successful for horror films like It and The Nun franchises.
Director Tim Burton, despite a brief consideration to delay due to an actors’ strike, is on track for the planned release after addressing post-strike details. The original 1988 Beetlejuice, grossing $75 million domestically, marked Burton’s creative collaboration with Michael Keaton, setting the stage for their work on Batman and Batman Returns.
“Beetlejuice Beetlejuice” reunites Keaton with original cast members Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara. New additions include Jenna Ortega, Willem Dafoe, Monica Bellucci, and Justin Theroux.
Despite a setback with a burglary on the Vermont set in mid-July, where a sculpture piece was stolen, the team is pushing forward to deliver a sequel that promises a nostalgic twist for fans. The anticipation builds as the iconic ghost with the most returns to the big screen in 2024.
