Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice.
Last year, director Tim Burton and the "bio-exorcist" ghost himself, Michael Keaton, teased the long-brewing sequel to the 1988 classic, but on Monday, Winona Ryder uttered the very necessary third incantation of that name. And thus, a Beetlejuice sequel appears.
“I think I can confirm it,” Ryder explained on Late Night with Seth Meyers. “It was very hush hush, top secret...then [Burton] was doing some press for Big Eyes and he did an on-camera interview and he said, ‘Oh yeah we’re doing it, and Winona’s going to be in it.’"
While we wait, check out what the original cast looks like over 25 years later:
Michael Keaton as Betelgeuse
Winona Ryder as Lydia Deetz
Catherine O’Hara as Delia Deetz
(The actor who plays her on-screen husband Charles, Jeffrey Jones, hasn’t walked a red carpet since 2008. But we’d be happy to see what he looks like now if he appears in this next movie!)
Alec Baldwin as Adam Maitland
Geena Davis as Barbara Maitland
Now, revisit the set of Beetlejuice to hear Winona’s best monkey impression:
