Brace yourselves, because it looks like ‘Beetlejuice 2’ is seriously happening, you guys. After years of borderline delusional dreaming, many involved in the 1988 film have confirmed that they’re all onboard!

Whip out your pinstriped pantsuits, because Beetlejuice is making a comeback– it looks like it anyway. One of the film’s original stars Winona Ryder recently revealed that, following years of speculation, a sequel to the creepy comedy is actually going forward!

‘Beetlejuice 2’: Winona Ryder Confirms Sequel Is ‘Happening’

Who ever thought this day would come? Nearly 30 years (!) after its release, a Beetljuice sequel seems likely!

No confirmation has been given just yet, so in order to get up to speed, MTV has compiled all of the affirmative info which basically says the sequel is a go! Here’s the breakdown:

Back in February of last year, original star Michael Keaton told the outlet that, if the film’s director Tim Burton was on board, then he would be too.

So what did Tim have to say? “Oh yeah,” replied the director. And would the original stars also be returning? Tim again said, “Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah.”

Well, it may only be two words, but we’ll take ’em!

So back to Winona, then. Is the actress on board? “Yeeeeaaah,” she said. “It looks like it’s really happening.”

And there you have it! A lot of “yeahs” later, and the prospects are looking good!

For those who’ve forgotten (or may be too young to even recall), Beetlejuice tells the spooky tale of the Maitlands, a couple who dies in a car accident and remains stuck in limbo, unable to leave their country home. When a new family moves in, the Maitlands attempt to scare them off, but their efforts are fruitless. To assist in their haunting, they hire Beetlejuice (Michael), but he ends up wreaking havoc for everyone.

Along with Michael and Winona, the film also starred Alec BaldwinCatherine O’hara and Geena Davis.

Tell us, would you like to see a Beetlejuice sequel?
