Watch the first teaser trailer for Michael Keaton’s Beetlejuice sequel

Three generations of the Deetz family are returning home to Winter River.

The first look at Michael Keaton in the Beetlejuice sequel has been revealed.

The Batman Returns actor is reprising his iconic 1998 role as the manic phantom, with audiences getting their first glimpse of the revived ghostly look this week.

Michael, 72, wears the same black and white striped suit as he did in the first movie, along with his signature black-ringed eyes and ghostly white pallor.

Tim Burton, who directed both movies, said Michael was able to step straight back into character – despite having to be persuaded to take up the role again.

"He just got back into it," Tim told Entertainment Weekly.

"It was kind of scary for somebody who was maybe not that overly interested in doing it. It was such a beautiful thing for me to see all the cast, but he, sort of like demon possession, just went right back into it."

The new movie, like the last one, will also star Catherine O'Hara and Winona Ryder. Newcomers Justin Theroux and Jenna Ortega have also joined the cast.

"After an unexpected family tragedy, three generations of the Deetz family return home to Winter River," describes the Beetlejuice sequel.

"Still haunted by Beetlejuice, Lydia's life is turned upside down when her rebellious teenage daughter, Astrid, discovers the mysterious model of the town in the attic and the portal to the Afterlife is accidentally opened.  With trouble brewing in both realms, it's only a matter of time until someone says Beetlejuice's name three times and the mischievous demon returns to unleash his very own brand of mayhem."
