[Video] ‘Beetlejuice’ Writer Shares 5 Things You Didn’t Know; Lydia Originally Died in a Fire!



The original New York premiere for Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice took place on March 29, 1988, ahead of its wide release one day later, which means that today is technically the 30th anniversary of one of the most beloved movies of all time. Think you know everything there is to know about the “ghost with the most,” do ya?

In celebration of the 30th anniversary, Yahoo sat writer Larry Wilson, who came up with the film’s story alongside Michael McDowell, down in a chair and had him share five fun facts you might not know about the classic film. Things like the original title for Beetlejuice, and the fact that not only did Lydia originally die, but she had a sister!

In the video, Wilson also details his idea for a direct sequel.

I had an idea for a sequel right away and it would have been a continuation of the story,” he shared with the outlet. “Mr. Deetz [Jeffrey Jones] would have developed a crush on Geena Davis’s character. That would have been my idea. It would have been driven by character and not driven by a premise.”
