“It sucks something out of you,” the 65-year-old director continued. “It takes something away from your soul or psyche; This is very disturbing, especially when it concerns you. It’s like a robot takes your humanity, your soul.”

Burton said a big budget project like Beetlejuice 2 leaves him physically and mentally exhausted. He often vows not to do more expensive projects, but his love for the creative process keeps him coming back for more.

“That’s why it’s hard for me to watch the films afterwards, because I still feel the emotionality of them. I don’t get any approval for this. But I enjoy all the people I’ve worked with,” he said.

“On that last point Beetlejuice 2, I really enjoyed it. I tried to strip everything away and go back to the basics of working with good people, actors and puppets. It was like going back to the reason why I like making films.”
