Props Are Being Stolen From Beetlejuice 2’s Set


In a bizarre turn of events, the set of Beetlejuice 2 has become a hotbed for theft. According to local Vermont authorities (via WCAX3), several items from the East Corinth set of Beetlejuice 2 have been stolen. The stolen items include six windows from the deconstructed Beetlejuice house, a large lamppost with a distinctive pumpkin decoration, and a 150-pound abstract art statue. These items were all set to be featured in the highly anticipated sequel to the 1988 cult classic.

Beetlejuice 2 has been in development for several years, with fans eagerly awaiting the return of Michael Keaton as the titular character. The sequel is set to capture the essence of the original film, with Keaton, Catherine O’Hara, and Winona Ryder reprising their roles. However, the recent thefts have cast an unexpected shadow over the production.

The Stolen Items

The thefts from the Beetlejuice 2 set have been quite specific, with the thieves targeting items that were set to be featured prominently in the film. The stolen windows were from the deconstructed Beetlejuice house and were set to be donated to the Northeast Slopes. The lamppost, adorned with a distinctive pumpkin decoration, was taken by an individual in a pickup truck. The 150-pound abstract art statue, located near the cemetery, also disappeared.

The Investigation

Local police are currently investigating the thefts, with no arrests made so far. The individuals responsible for the theft arrived at the lamppost location in an older-model GMC pickup truck shortly after midnight on July 14. They proceeded to dismantle the base of the Beetlejuice 2 statue and loaded it onto the vehicle. Three days later, the thieves returned to steal the statue itself.

Along with Keaton, Catherine O’Hara and Winona Ryder will also be reprising their roles from the original film.

The New Additions

The sequel also introduces new talent to the franchise. Jenna Ortega, who recently earned praise for her role in Netflix’s Wednesday, has been cast as Lydia’s daughter. Willem Dafoe joins Beetlejuice 2 as a law enforcement officer in the afterlife, with Monica Bellucci taking on the role of Betelgeuse’s wife. Tim Burton returns as director, working from a script by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.
