**Edit: Apparently Stern never got the license, just considered it. Maybe Spooky jumped onboard. (They would kick it with a perfect theme for them) I guess Cletus the cross eyed chicken does know more than me**
Stern considered doing Beetlejuice. But no designers showed interest at the time. Now they have Keith Elwin, and he has said his third game is already "in the can". He has relatively younger interests and seemingly different perspective that lacks from the other designers at Stern. With Franchi's artwork and Elwins design, this perspective machine could be a slam dunk.
Winona Ryder said in December that a Beetlejuice 2 was going to happen. A lot of rumors over the years of the film being shelved and then resurrected, but this seems to be happening soon-ish. A bonus for someone to make the pin happen.
I personally really like the thought of the original movie being made into a pin. The theme music alone would be killer as you play. So many modes, etc.
I really can see this coming to be reality this year, if not 2021.
Hell, they made Munsters and it did well, so Beetlejuice becoming a reality is no stretch.
Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice!!!
