Sadie Sink Playing Winona Ryder’s Daughter In Beetlejuice 2

Sadie Sink Could Play Winona Ryder’s Daughter In Beetlejuice 2

Stranger Things actress Sadie Sink is reported to be cast in Beetlejuice 2 as Winona Ryder’s daughter. A report from Giant Freakin Robot informs us that Sink has been added to Tim Burton’s long-awaited sequel.

Beetlejuice 2 has been in development for a long time and recently, it seems to be getting more traction than ever. The sequel to Burton’s 1988 film has been in the works since 1990. But for some reason, it couldn’t get started.

GFR’s news tells us that Sink will be playing the daughter of Lydia Deetz, whom Winona Ryder portrayed in the original film. The report of Sadie Sink being added to the cast is good news. Because for the first time, even though we barely hear any news, means that they already have an idea of how the sequel will go forward.

So far, it has been reported that Ryder, Catherine O’Hara, and Michael Keaton will be back to reprise their roles. Tim Burton is also back to direct the film. Even Geena Davis expressed her interest to come back. Although we’re not sure about Alec Baldwin, especially with his current legal troubles. And what about Jeffrey Jones?

There are rumours that Burton’s favourite actor Johnny Depp might be in the film. Not only that, but the rumours also include Robert Downey Jr. and Helena Bonham Carter.

Beetlejuice 2 is being produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment.

Sink got international recognition in Stranger Things’ second season. It also goes without saying that her co-star Winona Ryder also made an incredible comeback because of the Netflix show.

Sadie Sink even got multiple nominations and awards for the series and for the movies Dear Zoe and The Whale. Many find her very memorable because of her outstanding performance in Stranger Things’ fourth season. In fact, fans say that she deserves an award for it. In other words, her career is on the fast track.

This is the first time we have heard of a fresh cast. So, we are excited about the lineup, and with Sadie’s track record, this seems right up her alley.

The Beetlejuice sequel has been in development for many years. Back in 2016, Tim Burton was quoted to have said:

Beetlejuice 2 is a go and has been approved by the Warner Bros. team, we have talked with the cast members we wanted for the film and they are all on board, this includes both Winona and Michael. We have the script in hand everything is in place all we need to do now is get ready to start filming.

Winona Ryder even said that it was happening. However, all that was six years ago. Since then, Tim Burton has worked on Dumbo in 2019, and, more recently, Netflix’s Wednesday.

The sequel can continue in so many ways. For one thing, they must explain how Beetlejuice will hurdle that last scene in the movie. How does he wriggle himself out of that shrinking head situation? Or maybe he doesn’t, but Lydia would still be the key for everything to start rolling again.

Also, could the new character, Lydia’s daughter, have anything to do with bringing Beetlejuice back? That would be something to see.

Despite being such a welcome development, it still cannot be considered official. Thus, there is still that bigger chance that it isn’t actually happening. Even though I am excited to see a sequel, I would want to hear it from Tim Burton himself.

If Beetlejuice 2 would genuinely happen, what do you think would be the story? Are you looking forward to seeing Sadie Sink in the sequel?
