The Ghost With The Most is Back! ‘Beetlejuice 2’ Finally Has A Title and a Brand New Poster!

Talk about a long road walked! It’s been 36 (yes, you read that right) years since Tim Burton’s iconic freelance bio-exorcist made his debut in 1988’s Beetlejuice. Just about every 3 years since then we would hear rumblings about a sequel, the most detail about which we ever got was “Beetlejuice goes Hawaiian”. It was beginning to really seem like this would be one of those amazing films that’s one and done, which wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing.

Then a few key things happened. First and foremost, a script Tim Burton was willing to shoot was written. Second, both Winona Ryder and Michael Keaton had late career resurgences, and last Wednesday became a huge hit for Netflix proving both that audiences were in the mood for something dark and funny and that they had the perfect new star in Jenna Ortega.

To say the film has been highly anticipated would be an understatement, even dispite it’s iconic status it’s still surprsing how much excitement there has been for a film that we didn’t even have an official title for yet, nostalgia is a hell of a drug. That’s all starting to change though as Warner Bros announced via their X account that the upcoming sequel would be titled Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice AND the studio was even kind enough to provide the wonderful official poster seen below.

The poster makes perfect use of a reference to the first film, the waiting room of the afterlife, to confirm the Labor Day weekend release of September 6th, 2024. What a perfect way to close out the summer, though if I’m being honest, I would have preferred it to drop just a few weeks later. Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice feels like it would be best enjoyed when the air is crisp and the leaves are starting to turn. With the title and poster now out in the world it’s only a matter of time until we see the first trailer so make sure to check in with us and we’ll make sure it’s up as soon as it’s released!
