Who’s here to take on all your bio-exorcism needs? Who’s ready to raise hell at any given opportunity? Who’s partial to a bit of Harry Belafonte-soundtracked spectral activity? Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Yes, the black-and-white-striped ghoul has officially been summoned – and not only is he heading back to the big screen, he’s living it large on the cover of Empire too. This summer, Beetlejuice finally returns in the long-awaited, brilliantly-titled Beetlejuice Beetlejuice – with filmmaker Tim Burton back behind the camera, Michael Keaton revving it up in the title role once more, and the legendary Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara now joined by Wednesday star Jenna Ortega. Buckle up: the ghost with the most is back.

This month’s issue of Empire takes a world-exclusive deep-dive into the making of Beetlejuice Beetlejuice – going on set with Burton to get the inside scoop on a sequel several decades in the making, and speaking to the filmmaker himself about how one of his most beloved creations made its way back from the dead. Plus, we talk to Keaton about being back in the suit all these years later; Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara about re-entering Beetlejuice’s wild world; and incoming cast members Jenna Ortega, Willem Dafoe, Monica Bellucci, and Justin Theroux about conjuring up fresh chaos with the greatest ghoul in town. All that, and it’s packed with never-before-seen images from the film, creature effects supervisor Neal Scanlan discussing his practical magic, and plenty more besides. The juice is well and truly loose.

This month’s newsstand cover sees Beetlejuice and three generations of the Deetz family – Astrid, Lydia, and Delia – back in action.

And that’s not all – also inside the issue, we go face-to-facehugger with Alien: Romulus; tiptoe around the set of A Quiet Place: Day One with the filmmakers and cast; look out onto Kevin Costner’s Horizon with the filmmaker himself; get caught up in storming summer blockbuster Twisters; and much, much more.
