First Ghostbusters: Afterlife clip features the return of Stay Puft
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! Check out the new Ghostbusters: Afterlife clip in the player below!
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is a fictional product mascot that first appeared in the original 1984 Ghostbusters, and also had a cameo in 2016’s Ghostbusters: Answer the Call as a spectral parade balloon.
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.
