Tim Burton’s ’80s classic Beetlejuice is coming back for its long-awaited sequel, and we finally know what it has in store. The first trailer for Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is here, and it sees Michael Keaton getting ready to wreak havoc as our favorite chaotic ghost.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice sees three generations of the Deetz women returning to Winter River after an unexpected family tragedy. The trouble starts when Lydia’s rebellious teenage daughter Astrid accidently opens a portal to the Afterlife.

“With trouble brewing in both realms, it’s only a matter of time until someone says Beetlejuice’s name three times and the mischievous demon returns to unleash his very own brand of mayhem,” reads the film’s official logline.

In addition to Keaton as Beetlejuice, this long-awaited sequel will also mark the return of Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara as Lydia and Delia Deetz. Jenna Ortega (Wednesday) will join them as Lydia’s daughter Astrid, along with Willem Dafoe (Poor Things), Justin Theroux (The Leftovers), Burn Gorman (Turn: Washington’s Spies), and Monica Bellucci (Matrix franchise).

Tim Burton came back as the director of Beetlejuice Beetlejuice, while the Wednesday duo Alfred Gough and Miles Millar wrote the script. Warner Bros. Pictures will release the film theatrically on September 6.
