Keaton, reprising his iconic role as the mischievous and eccentric ghost Beetlejuice, described the sequel as “beautiful”a term that encapsulates not only the visual aspects of the film, but also its emotional depth. “It is very good. And handsome. Beautiful, you know, physically. You know what i mean? The other one was so fun and visually exciting. It’s all that, but really nice and interestingly poignant here and there. I wasn’t ready for that, you know. Yeah, that’s great,” remarked Keaton during his appearance at The Jess Cagle Show.

Keaton’s praise didn’t stop at the film’s visual and emotional appeal. He also praised the performances of both returning and new cast members, signaling a dynamic ensemble that is sure to please fans. “It’s great and the cast, I mean, Catherine [O’Hara], if you thought it was funny last time, double it. She’s so funny and Justin Theroux is like, I mean, come on. Keaton was excited. O’Hara returns as Delia Deetz, while Theroux joins the cast in an as-yet-undisclosed role. The sequel also features Jenna Ortega as daughter Lydia, Monica Bellucci as Beetlejuice’s wife, and Willem Dafoe as a dead B-movie actor, adding new layers to the beloved universe.

“It’s so much fun and I’ve seen it now, I’ll see it again after a few tweaks in the editing room, and I can say with confidence that this is great.” Keaton shared. The journey from the original “Beetlejuice” to its sequel has been a long one, but if Keaton’s early raves are anything to go by, it will have been worth the wait. The showtime for the sequel is set September 6.
