The fan art from 83pixelStudios on Instagram encapsulates a distinctly Burton-esque vibe, complete with its darkly whimsical aesthetics and the unmissable striped silhouette of the titular character lurking in the background. At the center, Jenna Ortega casts an arresting image, her facial expression exhibiting a blend of curiosity and rebellion reminiscent of Winona Ryder’s iconic portrayal of Lydia Deetz in the original Beetlejuice (1988).

Jenna Ortega’s star has been on the rise, thanks to her performance in the Netflix series Wednesday, Before Wednesday she was best known for her roles in You and The Babysitter: Killer Queen, where she demonstrated her adeptness in both drama and comedy.

Ortega’s casting as Lydia’s daughter suggests that the sequel will explore the multi-generational impact of Beetlejuice’s antics, opening the door to intriguing narrative possibilities.

Missing from this piece of fan art is any sign of the ghost with the most himself, Beetlejuice. Michael Keaton is, however, back as the character. Presumably, he’ll show up in his own poster soon enough.

Willem Dafoe is also set to join the Beetlejuice franchise. GFR was first to report that he will be in the cast, several months ago.

For those fans of the original Beetlejuice, this poster alone should evoke a wave of nostalgia. It’s clear the sequel aims to honor the original’s quirky style and humor while carving out its own unique place in the franchise. The introduction of Jenna Ortega’s character as the next generation dealing with Beetlejuice’s mischief promises a fresh perspective on the iconic Burton original.
