Watch The Ghostbusters: Afterlife Mini-Pufts Character Reveal

Sony Pictures has revealed the first clip from the forthcoming sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife, featuring Paul Rudd’s teacher character Mr. Grooberson having an encounter with Mr. Stay Puft… many Mr. Stay Pufts, actually!

Jason Reitman’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife will focus on single mom Callie (Carrie Coon) and her two kids, Trevor and Phoebe (Finn Wolfhard & Mckenna Grace). The family moves into a beaten-down farmhouse in Oklahoma only to discover that there’s something strange in the neighborhood. Unexplained earthquakes shake the town soon after and there’s an old mine nearby that bears the name of Ivo Shandor, who built the Manhattan building that channeled the forces of evil in the original film. Paul Rudd costars as a local teacher who befriends Callie and her kids and helps them discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife co-stars legacy actors Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts, all returning to reprise their original roles. Ivan Reitman, who helmed the first two, will produce.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be released in Fall 2021.

Watch The Ghostbusters: Afterlife Trailer

Sony Pictures has revealed the first trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, a direct followup to 1989’s Ghostbusters 2 from director Jason Reitman.

12-year-old Mckenna Grace (Captain Marvel, Annabelle Comes Home) stars in Ghostbusters: Afterlife, with Carrie Coon (The Leftovers) playing her mother and Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things, IT) as her brother. Paul Rudd (Avengers: Endgame) will be playing a teacher in the film, while Oliver Cooper and Bokeem Woodbine will also be featured. Original stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts are all expected to return for the sequel.

According to Reitman, the sequel “connects back to the Manhattan Crossrip of 1984” that was seen in the first film. “As the family arrives at an old farm, they begin to discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters. Trevor and Phoebe are about to find out who their grandfather was and whether they’re ready to pick up the proton pack themselves.”

Jason Reitman (Juno, Young Adult, Tully) directed the new film, taking over from his father Ivan Reitman who helmed the first two and will produce. Reitman, who had a cameo in 1989’s Ghostbusters 2, co-wrote the script with Gil Kenan (Monster House, Poltergeist), who is no stranger to ghost stories.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be released on July 10, 2020.
