‘Beetlejuice 2’: First Glimpse of Jenna Ortega’s Character Revealed in Set Photos

Exciting set photos have emerged, giving us the initial glimpse of Jenna Ortega in her costume for Beetlejuice 2, the highly anticipated sequel to Tim Burton’s beloved 1988 film. As the cameras rolled, Ortega shared the spotlight with co-star Winona Ryder, who reprises her role as Lydia Deetz from the original movie. The images of these two talented actresses hard at work were recently published by People Magazine.


The filming of Beetlejuice 2 took place in Hertfordshire, England, where the duo was spotted shooting a grand wedding scene, reminiscent of a famous sequence featuring Ryder in the first film. However, Ortega’s attire contrasts with Ryder’s iconic red, multi-tiered ruffled dress from 1988, as she dons a more traditional white wedding gown. In May, Warner Bros. officially announced Ortega’s involvement in the film, revealing her character as “Lydia’s daughter.”

Michael Keaton, who has been experiencing a career resurgence, is set to reprise his acclaimed role as the titular character, following his well-received return as Bruce Wayne/Batman in DC’s The Flash, currently playing in theaters. Speaking at a VIP event for The Flash, Keaton expressed his enthusiasm for reprising the role, stating, “Beetlejuice is the most exhilarating experience one can have while working. It’s incredibly fun and fantastic. You know what’s remarkable? We’re approaching it exactly like we did the first movie.”

Keaton further elaborated, revealing, “Tim and I were discussing it years and years ago, keeping it under wraps. We’ve both mentioned it several times. We agreed that if it happens, it should be approached in a manner very similar to the first time around. Creating, inventing, improvising, and collaborating, with a focus on handmade craftsmanship and building something.”
