‘Beetlejuice 2’ – Set Photos Show Winona Ryder as Lydia Deetz 36 Years Later!

Filming is now underway on Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice 2 over in England, and Daily Mail UK has shared some photos from the set this afternoon. The paparazzi shots, which you’ll find below, give us our first look at Winona Ryder’s impending return as Lydia Deetz, the iconic character she first played in Tim Burton’s original Beetlejuice movie over 35 years ago!

Ryder’s Lydia Deetz was of course the central protagonist in the 1988 classic, and her iconic goth-black hair with pointed bangs is back in business in these early sneak peek shots.

Warner Bros. brings the sequel to theaters on September 6, 2024.

Jenna Ortega (“Wednesday,” Scream VI) is joining Michael Keaton in the long-awaited sequel, with Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara both returning.

Monica Bellucci (Irreversible) will be playing Beetlejuice’s wife!

No word yet on plot details, but it’s known that Jenna Ortega will be playing the daughter of Lydia Deetz, the character Winona Ryder is of course returning to play.

Willem Dafoe and Justin Theroux recently joined the cast as well, with frequent Burton collaborator Danny Elfman coming back to compose the film’s score.

The original Beetlejuice was directed by Burton in 1988 and has become a cult favorite. It starred Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis as ghosts who haunt their old home. When a little girl (Winona Ryder) accidentally unleashes a mischievous ghost (Michael Keaton), the ghosts try to drive the homeowners (Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones) out of the house.
