Tim Burton Confirms Winona Ryder Will Return for BEETLEJUICE Sequel
Director Tim Burton recently sat down for an interview with MTV and confirmed that he’s still planning on directing Beetlejuice 2. He also revealed that Winona Ryder will return to reprise her role as Lydia Deetz. When asked if Ryder would be back, he said,
“Oh yeah, yeah yeah yeah. Oh yeah, oh yeah. Yeah yeah, oh yeah,”
Ryder hinted that she would be included in the film about a year ago. It’s good to get a good solid confirmation from Burton, though. He also said,
“I worked with [Ryder], I hadn’t seen her in awhile… and she was so great. 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.”
In a previous interview, Burton said this sequel is closer than ever to happening. I can’t wait to see these characters back together on the big screen. It’s going to be really interesting to see what has happened to them over the last 30 years. I can’t believe that it has been that long.
