A sequel that has been in the works pretty much since the recently deceased took our heart and souls, Beetlejuice 2 finally seems to have steam behind it to make it happen. This might be just the thing to bring Burton back to his tragically comedic roots, when CGI and big budgets were not as readily available as it is now. Burton’s track record has become a tad shaky in the recent past. At the same time his reputation as an artist has skyrocketed thanks to movies like Big Fish, now a Broadway musical, and Big Eyes which has received critical acclaim.
Returning to one of Burton’s first and groundbreaking films might just be what is needed to bring our creepmaster du jour back to the graveyard. And with the cast jumping on board faster than you can read stereo instructions, it is clear that audiences aren’t the only ones who have missed the ghost with the most.
