Tim Burton and Warner Bros. have sparked a wave of excitement across the movie realm, delivering a long-awaited announcement: Beetlejuice 2 is officially on the cards! Fans have been clamoring for this sequel since the original “Beetlejuice” graced our screens in 1988. Now, it appears the wait is nearly over. The sequel is rumored to commence filming this week, with a release slated for September 2024.
