Jenna Ortega has been spotted on the set of Beetlejuice 2 in Hertfordshire after Winona Ryder was seen at a former school near Hitchin earlier this year.

Back in May, crews had been spotted at the Princess Helena College site in Preston, which closed to students in 2021, with claims they are capturing footage for the sequel to the 1980s classic.

The rumours were confirmed when pictures of Ryder, who is reprising her role as Lydia Deetz, were snapped showing her sitting in the passenger seat of a Tesla leaving the disused school.

The 51-year-old was sat beside the male driver, thought to be co-star Michael Keaton, with the car kitted out with camera equipment.

Now, as excitement builds ahead of the film's scheduled release on September 6, 2024, a new star has been spotted on set in Hertfordshire.

Jenna Ortega, who is playing Lydia Deetz's daughter, was spotted an unconfirmed location in the county, wearing what appeared to be a wedding dress and veil.

The 20-year-old star was spotted arm-in-arm with actor Filipe Cates, while Ryder was also on set once again for the filming.

Beetlejuice 2 also sees Michael Keaton returning in the title role, while Catherine O'Hara, Monica Bellucci and Willem Dafoe are also set to star.

Beetlejuice 2 will once again be directed by Tim Burton, with Blue Hawaii used as a working title for the film - in reference to plans for an original sequel called Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian, which were drawn up in the early 1990s before being scrapped.

The original story had the Deetz family moving to Hawaii to unwittingly develop a vacation paradise on an ancient burial ground, but the plot for the 2024 film is currently under wraps.
