When Is The Beetlejuice 2’s Release Date?

Because the Beetlejuice franchise is known for its creepy visuals and spooky atmosphere, it stands to reason that Warner Brothers would want to release Beetlejuice 2 in the fall.

Who Is In The Cast Of Beetlejuice 2?
Winona Ryder reprises her role as Lydia Deetz in the sequel, while Michael Keaton reprises his role as Betelgeuse, two beloved cast members from the first movie. In addition, Catherine O'Hara and Geena Davis will also reprise their roles as Charles Deetz and Delia, respectively.
It's exciting to see Jenna Ortega, a rising talent in Hollywood, join the cast as Lydia Deetz's daughter. Tim Burton, the director, stated his excitement for bringing back the adored characters and emphasized that the follow-up would uphold the original's charm.

What Is The Beetlejuice 2’s Plot?
The film will most likely follow Winona Ryder's Lydia and her daughter (played by Jenna Ortega) as they confront Michael Keaton's Beetlejuice and the World of the Dead.
At one point, writer Seth Grahame-Smith indicated that the film takes place "26 or 27 years" later, taking up where the previous film left off (via Collider):
“This will be a true 26 or 27 years later sequel. What’s great is that for Beetlejuice, time means nothing in the afterlife, but the world outside is a different story.”
However, things may have changed because Grahame-Smith's script was reworked in 2017 before Warner Bros. placed the movie on hold for many years.
The sequel might have the Deetz family having lived with the paranormal world at their doorstep for decades, with Lydia, her daughter, and the rest of the Deetz clan invited into the Neitherrealm, rather than ghosts and ghouls invading the real world as in the first film.
