Geena Davis, who starred in the original Beetlejuice opposite Alec Baldwin, revealed why she won't appear in the sequel.

The actress played Barbara Maitland in the first 1988 comedy and was married to Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin), who both passed away in a motor accident and became ghosts.

Recently, Davis spoke with ET about the upcoming sequel, Beetlejuice Beetlejuice. When asked about appearing in the newest film, she confirms she's not attending — possibly due to age.

“No, I'm not,” the actress said. “I'm not in the remake. 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.”

“Our characters were stuck the way they looked when they died forever, so it's been a while, it's been a minute,” she added.

She hasn't watched the trailer yet to see how the new film looks. However, she mentioned she'd get to doing so.

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

About Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

The new Tim Burton film will have many elements of the original movie but also feature many new faces and elements.

As for returning actors, PEOPLE confirms Michael Keaton will reprise his role as the mischievous Beetlejuice. Also, Winona Ryder is returning as Lydia Deetz. Plus, Catherine O'Hara will be back to play Lydia's mother, Delia Deets.

Jenna Ortega will star in the sequel, which will be released on Wednesday. She's set to play Lydia's daughter, Astrid.

Monica Bellucci will play Beetlejuice's wife, and Willem Dafoe will play a dead law enforcement officer.

Davis isn't the only actor that isn't returning. Baldwin will also not be in the newest movie.

As for what the new film is about, details are still a bit under wraps. However, Beetlejuice unsuccessfully tried to marry Lydia when the last film ended. When things go awry, it ends with the house becoming normal as the Maitland and Lydia's families live together peacefully — Beetlejuice-free.

So, it's unclear where exactly the new film picks up. However, the plot is supposed to focus on the adult Lydia and her daughter running into issues with Beetlejuice and the dead underworld in which he (and other souls) inhabit.

The trailer was released last month. It shows Astrid riding her bike and then joining Lydia and Delia. There, they attend a funeral. Astrid comes across the model that Adam built up in the attic. Then, Beetlejuice appears, saying, “The Juice is loose.”

Beyond that, there's no indication of where it goes from here. But whatever the plot, it looks like a wicked ride.

Deadline states that Keaton saw a cut of the new movie and said its visuals are “beautiful” and that it has an “emotional” story.

“It's just so fun, and I've seen it now,” the actor said on The Jess Cagle Show. “I'm going to see it again after a couple of little tweaks in the editing room, and I confidently say this thing is great.”

So prepare for a ghoulish good time as Beetlejuice Beetlejuice haunts theaters on September 5, 2024.
