So here’s some news that should be more pleasing. I’m still of the opinion that Beetlejuice is one of Tim Burton’s most fun films and a proper ‘making of’ documentary is long overdue. Well, a fundraising campaign was launched back in 2018 for Documentary for the Recently Deceased: The Making of Beetlejuice, and though that particular campaign was unsuccessful, the documentary seems to have been completed anyway. A full trailer has been released and you can view it below.
The documentary will apparently cover all aspects of the Beetlejuice production: from filming in East Corinth, Vermont, to the stop motion and special effects work, including stop-motion sequences digitized in 2K especially for the occasion, as well as:
Interviews with cast and crew,
Behind the scenes photos and videos,
Rare production archives such as concept arts, blueprints,
Tour of East Corinth, Vermont,
Interviews with people of East Corinth who were there for the filming,
Meet fans that create great stuff about the movie,
Meet Props Collectors,
Meet Tom Spina, who worked on restoring the props, 30 years later,
Meet Kyle Lambert, our poster designer.
Adam F. Goldberg [The Goldbergs] produced the documentary which is currently in post-production.
