Strange paranormal activity literally starts shaking the city to which they have moved. The children discover the secret of their grandfather and also his equipment. And also a jumpsuit on which “Spengler” is written, indicating that they are Egons grandchildren.

The film looks nice and fresh. Fresh because it is a direct sequel, but it is also very different from the original films. The children seem to be the main characters. The tone is not that flapping either.

Paul Rudd plays a supporting character in Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Paul Rudd plays a supporting character and the one who introduces the legend of the Ghostbusters to the children, because they have acquired an almost mythical quality.

We know that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts will repeat their roles from the original films, although they do not appear in the trailer.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife’s official summary reads: “From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman comes the next chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe. In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, when a single mother and her two children arrive in a small town, they start their connection with the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy that their grandfather has left behind to discover.
