Within the classics of halloweendefinitely beetlejuice by Tim Burton is one of the most beloved titles of the public. Well, the film released in 1988 would present one of the most iconic characters of the horror genre, in addition to a visual proposal which back then was equaled only to the visions of artists like Jim Henson.
The impact of Beetlejuice has been such that it has been referenced in different tapes and series in addition to having an animated series and his own musical on Broadwayso earlier this year it was confirmed that after 34 years, Tim Burton would make a sequel.
So far the movie still in development stage -although it had been contemplated to start shooting at the end of this year-, and it has been confirmed that both Michael Keaton as Winona Ryder they will return in their respective papers.
