Beetlejuice fans are rejoicing because of sequel rumors since it seems like Johnny Depp will join the cast for the movie’s release which is said to be in 2025.
The rumors started at the end of the defamation trial between Johnny Depp and ex-wife Amber Heard.

The cast that supposedly will join Depp so far would be Michael Keaton reprising his role as Beetlejuice and Winona Ryder playing her legendary character Lydia Deetz. It is also rumored that Tim Burton will take over as director again
If you haven’t seen the iconic movie, the film revolves around a married couple that dies and transcends to the afterlife but their soul is somehow trapped in-between life and death until they can rest properly, and for that to happen they must expel the new owners who purchased their house, to do so, they hire the undead services of Beetlejuice.
If you make a quick Google search for Beetlejuice 2 and you will find that three familiar faces are there, Keaton, Ryder, and Depp.
The history between Depp and Ryder
If you recall, Winona was engaged with Johnny Depp for three years in the late 80s and early 90s, and Ryder has defended Johnny throughout the trial.
She has claimed that her relationship with Depp was “wildly different” than what his ex-wife says she had with the actor.
In 2020 Winona said “I truly and honestly only know him as a really good man – an incredibly loving, extremely caring guy who was so very protective of me and the people that he loves, and I felt so very, very safe with him”
Depp and Burton have been together in 8 films
“I do not want to call anyone a liar but from my experience of Johnny, it is impossible to believe that such horrific allegations are true. I find it extremely upsetting, knowing him as I do.”
Ryder has mentioned that she is “hopeful” Beetlejuice 2 can get the green light.
She spoke with USA Today on Tuesday and she confirmed it
“I’m in! I’m definitely excited and I’m really hopeful that it’ll happen”
“The only way we would do it is if everything was perfect and we had all the people – obviously Michael and obviously Tim,”
