Tim Burton's long-awaited Beetlejuice sequel is believed to have wrapped filming after the production was forced to go on hiatus due to the Hollywood strikes, and some set videos from the last few days of filming have now found their way online.

We got a glimpse of one returning star, Winona Ryder (Stranger Things), as Lydia Deetz in the initial batch of set photos earlier this year, and a first look at Michael Keaton as the titular Ghost with the Most leaked online last week.

That shot was quickly removed (you can probably still dig it up somewhere) after take-down notices from Warner Bros., but you'll find a (very) quick glimpse of ol' Betelgeuse in one of these new videos - though we're not sure if it's actually Keaton or a stunt double.

The vids also give us another look at Jenna Ortega as Lydia's daughter, Astrid, as she rides her bicycle through town.

Plot details are still under wraps, but we've heard that Astrid will be estranged from her mother at the beginning of the movie, and is planning to get married, possibly to Justin Theroux's character. 

Check out the videos at the links below.

Keaton spoke about returning as the manic Bio-Exorcist in a recent interview with Empire.

"Beetlejuice is the most f--kin’ fun you can have working. It’s so fun, it’s so great. And you know what it is? We’re doing it exactly like we did the first movie," he says. "There’s a woman in the great waiting room for the afterlife literally with a fishing line – I want people to know this because I love it – tugging on the tail of a cat to make it move."

"[Burton] and I were talking about it years and years ago, never telling anybody," he continued. "I said, ‘if it happens, first of all, we’ve both said we’re doing it many times. We both agreed, if it happens, it has to be done as close to the way we made it the first time. Making stuff up, making stuff happen, improvising and riffing, but literally handmade stuff like people creating things with their hands and building something. F--kin’ great. It’s the most fun I’ve had working on a movie in I can’t tell you how long."

Catherine O'Hara is also set to reprise her role as Lydia's mother, Delia Deetz. New cast members include Monica Bellucci as Betelgeuse's wife, and Willem Dafoe as an afterlife cop.

Wednesday creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar penned the script.

Beetlejuice 2 is set to release in theaters on Sept. 6, 2024.

Betelgeuse?
MarkCassidy - 11/25/2023, 10:36 AM
@Comicmoviejunki - Say it twice more and it's showtime.

@Comicmoviejunki - it's how you spell Beetlejuice in universe.
ClintThaHamster - 11/25/2023, 10:39 AM
@Comicmoviejunki - That's the actual spelling of his name in the first movie, named after a star in the Orion constellation.
santoanderson - 11/25/2023, 11:08 AM
@Comicmoviejunki - Betelgeuse was the original title, but WB marketing executives were afraid nobody would watch the movie if it had an “unpronounceable” title, so they changed the name up a more phonetic “Beetlejuice”.
Vigor - 11/25/2023, 11:38 AM
@santoanderson - I'd aay it was the right call

Are you using A.I. art as the thumbnail?🤔

@Comicmoviejunki - that's how it's spelled on his headstone

@AmazingFILMporg - I don't think so...it's been around for a while. Artist is credited below.

Hoping this is a blast!

Willam Dafoe as an afterlife cop sounds intriguing?m. Hopefully this can be a successful far too late sequel like Top Gun Maverick, Ghost Busters Afterlife, Cobra Kai, or Blade Runner 2049 and not a terrible far too late sequel like almost all the rest of them.

@mountainman - I love Rocky Balboa, Rambo, TMNT and Psycho II.
mountainman - 11/25/2023, 1:35 PM
@Batman91 - Rocky Balboa might be the overall best Rocky Film. The first Creed was really good two. So that’s a great example.

Rambo isn’t to my taste, but I really only enjoyed the first two in that series.

TMNT is a reboot not a sequel.

No thoughts on Psycho 2.

I’m sure there are more 20+ year old sequels that are good.
Batman91 - 11/26/2023, 6:14 AM
@mountainman - TMNT was purposely made so that it could work as a sequel. The test tube is cracked in a way where it could say TGRI or TCRI and the time sceptre from Turtles III is in their trophy case. At any rate it's not as hard a reboot as the 2014 movie. I've always called it Turtles 4.
Matador - 11/26/2023, 11:41 AM
@mountainman - Only if he plays it like Boondock Saints cop.

santoanderson - 11/25/2023, 11:13 AM
Man, I really hope this movie brings back some of that 80’s/90’s playful Tim Burton energy. His more recent stuff has gotten so tame and predictable.
Thing94 - 11/25/2023, 5:17 PM
@santoanderson - Tim Burton is directing it??
AmazingFILMporg - 11/25/2023, 11:58 AM
This movie is gonna be huge. 1 billion incoming 💪♥️🖖
Feralwookiee - 11/25/2023, 12:04 PM
I guess we don't have to have that uncomfortable conversation about Beetlejuice marrying Ortega in this one at least, as she's 21, and clearly too old for his tastes.

More importantly, will there be any STOP MOTION, non cgi sandworms?
lazlodaytona - 11/25/2023, 12:05 PM
Keaton can do no wrong in my eyes. Can't wait for this.
I hope it doesn't end up being a Dumb and Dummer To .... I don't want this film to destroy the original.
DocSpock - 11/25/2023, 12:34 PM


C'Mon you perverts. just admit how much you want to be that bicycle.

Nibble nibble.....

ModHaterSLADE - 11/25/2023, 1:04 PM
Can' wait. The first movie is a classic.
ThouBear8 - 11/25/2023, 1:11 PM
I absolutely love Keaton's enthusiasm. I can't wait for this, the first one is one of my all time favorite movies.
bobevanz - 11/25/2023, 1:34 PM
Glorious, please be decent..
JollyR - 11/25/2023, 6:43 PM
