Geena Davis Explains Why She’s Not In ‘Beetlejuice Beetlejuice’

Most of the Beetlejuice cast from the 1988 film return for the 2024 sequel, Beetlejuice Beetlejuice. Geena Davis is not one of them.

“No, I’m not. I’m not in the remake,” Geena, 68, told Entertainment Tonight on Thursday. “Oh, you were expecting that I would be? Yeah, no, you know what? Because my theory is that ghosts don’t age … Not that I have.”

In the original film, Davis appeared as ghost Barbara Maitland, who is seen by Winona Ryder’s character, Lydia Deetz.

“Our characters were stuck the way they looked when they died forever, so it’s been a while, it’s been a minute,” Davis said.

Davis has not seen the trailer for the sequel.

“I heard the trailer came out and somebody said they were crying, so I have to see the trailer,” she said.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice stars Jenna Ortega as Astrid Deetz, Lydia’s daughter. Winona, Michael Keaton, and Catherine O’Hara are set to reprise their roles. Justin Theroux, Monica Bellucci and Willem Dafoe were also added to the cast. Tim Burton returns to direct the film.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice is scheduled for release in theaters on September 6.
