Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetl… oh, sorry.

Our king of all things dark, beautiful and awesome, the one and only Tim Burton has some great news for the world: Beetlejuice 2 is happening. And we will have our original Beetlejuice and Lydia back!

In an interview with MTV News, the always fun Josh Horowitz took the chance and asked Burton if he will direct Beetlejuice 2. The answer was simple yet firm: “Oh yeah”.

That was enough to make all of us Burton/Beetlejuice fans go wild with excitement. But what about Winona coming back as Lydia?

“Ooh yeah, yeah yeah yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah”, Burton said.

Well, those were a lot of “yeahs” and I love it! There can only be one Lydia and that’s Winona. The best part is that Burton enjoys working with her, to the point that working with her on a music video for The Killers was the little push he need to go ahead with the cast.

“I was so happy to see her. So those kinds of elements mean something to me. Michael, and her… and that character, I just miss it, there’s some freedom about that character that I love”, Burton explained.

Can you imagine what Beetlejuice and Lydia could be up to after all these years? It’s going to be crazy!

Earlier this year, Michael Keaton confirmed he was in talks with Burton over the sequel and on October he mentioned they were waiting for a script. Now it seems that everything is falling into place and we could have Beetlejuice 2 soon!
