Ghostbusters Afterlife is an upcoming American comedy film directed by Jason Reitman. In co-writing the screenplay with Gil Kenan, he presents a supernatural adventure that mocks many aspects of current events and pop culture.
It is a sequel to Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II, and the fourth film of the franchise. Thirty years after the events of Ghostbusters II, a single mother with two children moves to a small town in Oklahoma, where they discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters.
The crew for the film, with director Ivan Reitman, researched designs from the original Ghostbusters movie to keep consistency in character design. One of the reasons for the creation of Muncher, a ghost similar to Slimer from Ghostbusters: The Afterlife. Reitman said that “Something happened to Slimer over the years that people started thinking of him as the dalmatian of the firehouse. He was originally an angry dude who was very scary and we really wanted to get back to that.”
Ghostbusters: Afterlife is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2021. The film was delayed three times from an original July 2020 release date due to the COVID-19 pandemic. RealD 3D will be used for release in theatres.
Movie Plot and More
The 2021 version is just like the adventure films you grew up with. Single mother Carrie Coon moves to a small town with her two teenage children, played by Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace. The family lives in their late grandfather’s house and finds his equipment that leads them to his mysterious past – which we get a glimpse of at the end of the trailer.
The trailer also hints at Bill Murray’s cameo in the film, making us feel nostalgic over this old Ghostbusters story while also setting up for the next 2020s installment.
