However, her acting career also includes several high-profile European projects. No name has currently been given for Bellucci’s character, and it’s unclear if she has any connection to other versions of Beetlejuice.
The original Beetlejuice, which focused on the ghostly title character who is taken on by two other disgruntled ghosts of the family that has taken over their house, was known to be a big hit, also spawning a stage play and an animated series, but fans have been waiting decades for a canonical sequel to be made. Burton hinted last year that the time for Beetlejuice 2 he was approaching, saying: “I’m working on ideas and stuff, but it’s all very early. We’ll see how it goes. How is that for an unanswered answer“. Finally, in April 2023, the film was officially announced.
