Remember Tim Burton's '80s classic flick Beetlejuice? As in, Beetlejuice the ghost who started a revelation for black and white striped trousers everywhere (and not necessarily a good one)? Well we have excellent news, as Winona Ryder confirmed in an interview with Late Night host Seth Meyers last night that Beetlejuice 2 is 100% happening. Winona revealed she had to keep schtum for a while, saying to Seth: "I think I can confirm it. It was very hush hush, top secret. But then when Tim Burton was doing some press for Big Eyes [his 2014 film], he did this interview saying 'Yeah, yeah we're doing it. Winona's going to be in it.' But I don't really know much more than anybody else!" Winona played goth teen Lydia Deetz in the movie, and Michael Keaton played Beetlejuice. Keaton's been super keen to film a sequel for ages as long as Tim Burton continues directing.

Yay! We are soooo excited to see the sequel. In fact we might go home and rewatch the first one right now to get us in the mood.

But one more thing. Winona also admitted in the interview that a security guard at an airport once wouldn't let her get through the check-in gate until she said 'Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice.' LOL. We want to meet that security guard.

Just chilling
