Tim Burton’s 1998 beloved cult classic Beetlejuice is known for its distinctive mix of dark humor, gothic aesthetics, and eccentric characters. The plot revolves around Adam and Barbara Maitland, a recently deceased couple, seeking the assistance of the mischievous ghost Beetlejuice to frighten the new occupants of their home and make them leave.

Despite its initial success, a sequel to Tim Burton‘s Beetlejuice faced prolonged uncertainty, fueling years of rumors and speculations. Fans anxiously awaited confirmation, and in May 2023, after years of talks and previous failed attempts, the sequel finally went into production. Recently, the production team teased their fans by releasing the first poster for the sequel and unveiling the title.

Producer Burton previously shared on Instagram in November 2003 that production of the movie had been finalized. “Just finished shooting Beetlejuice,” he captioned the post with a photo of himself sitting on a couch on the movie’s set. “Thank you to everyone involved.” However, it seems that was just a media stunt as he later revealed in September 2023 that filming commenced in London in May 2023 but encountered several months of delay owing to the Screen Actors Guild strike in July.

Also, he expressed how working on the movie became a nostalgic journey, reconnecting him with the fundamental reasons that inspired him to become a filmmaker. “I tried to strip everything and go back to the basics of working with good people and actors and puppets,” he told The Independent. “It was kind of like going back to why I liked making movies.”
