Warner Bros. Pictures released this Thursday (1st) the first poster for the sequel to The ghosts have funhorror and comedy classic from Tim Burton. Along with the poster, which highlights the film’s North American release date (September 6), came official confirmation of the title: Beetlejuice Beetlejuice.
The title is a play on the ritual performed to invoke the ghost experienced by Michael Keaton, which consists of calling his name three times in a row. Perhaps this is our first clue that there is a trilogy on the studio’s mind, but for now it’s too early to know for sure.
It remains to be seen what the national title of the film will be (The Ghosts Have Fun The Ghosts Have Fun doesn’t seem like the best option). See the poster below.
Beetlejuice Beetlejuice will have Jenna Ortegawho collaborated with Burton on Wandinha on Netflix, as the daughter of Lydia Deetz (Winona Ryder), in a story that takes place 30 years after the original feature. Micheal Keaton will also be back as the ghost that names the film. Catherine O’Hara completes the cast. Details of the sequel’s story have not been released by Warner Bros. yet, but that should change soon as its debut is scheduled for this year.
Beetlejuice was released in 1988 and shows a pair of super clumsy ghosts whose house is invaded by sophisticated New Yorkers. To scare them away, they hire a professional: a ghost called Beetle Juice, an expert in scaring humans (Michael Keaton), who will try everything – adopt strange shapes, set up traps and traps. Directed by Tim Burtonthe cast also features Winona Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, Alec Baldwin It is Geena Davis.
In Brazil, the premiere of Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, the sequel to The Ghosts Have Fun, has not yet been confirmed, but it should take place close to its release in the USA, on September 6th.
