Ghostbusters Afterlife: 7 Fast Issues We Know In regards to the Sequel
Ghostbusters Afterlife has ties to the original films
Unlike the very entertaining Ghostbusters 2016, Ghostbusters: Afterlife won’t be a complete reboot of the franchise. Instead, it will be a sequel and third installment in the original Ghostbusters films. It will have many connections to the first two Bill Murray films.
The official Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer has so many Easter eggs, from the Ghostbusters suits to Ecto-1. The biggest thing that connects this film to the original films is that Callie, Phoebe, and Trevor are all family members of one of the original Ghostbusters. It is not known who Trevor and Phoebe’s grandfather are, but most evidence suggests they are grandchildren of Egon Spengler (played by the late Harold Ramis).
Phoebe’s looks are very similar to a younger girl version of Spengler, and in the trailer you can see Spengler’s Ghostbusters suit hanging in the closet of her grandfather’s house. Lots of details surrounding Ghostbusters: Afterlife are kept under wraps, but this may only be the beginning of the introduction of older Ghostbusters into this world.
