Earlier, Warner Bros tried to revive the film for a sequel, however, it was shelved in 2019. At that time Tim Burton shared that he would “really like” to be the sequel’s part. Moreover, Ryder also expressed her interest in the sequel’s making. With all the members who are set for the return, the movie is expected to start rolling later in 2022 under Brad Pitt’s production.

Fans React To The Latest News About The Sequel

Fans of the original Beetlejuice, however, are skeptical about the sequel. Some fear that the sequel won’t justify the original, tormenting it for the audience in its process.

Beetlejuice was highly successful at the time of its release. Later on, the film inspired an animated show and a video game based on it. Moreover, a stage musical adaptation was also released. The audience, however, will have to wait for the sequel’s release to gauge if it justified the legacy of the original Beetlejuice.
