Many Ghostbusters fans were looking forward to Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which has unfortunately been delayed several times over the past year. Luckily, however, the long-awaited franchise revival is now scheduled for the end of 2021 – and Sony is already relaunching the marketing campaign. As you can see below, they revealed a new clip from the film which introduces Stay Puft “Mini-Pufts.” Fans should remember the iconic Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from the original Ghostbusters film. Well, now he’s a lot smaller – and there’s way more than one. In what can only be described as the Ghostbusters equivalent to Gremlins, or maybe even Army of Darkness, you can see the Ghostbusters: Afterlife clip below.
As perfectly summed up by Sony in the video’s description:
“Sweet. Mischievous. Savage. 🔥 Mini-Pufts are out of the bag.”
The clip also features a decent bit of Paul Rudd’s character, Mr. Grooberson. Unfortunately for him, it doesn’t look like he gets along very well with the little marshmallow creatures – and chaos ensues. While it is a very small clip, and possibly doubling for some kind of summertime promotion, it is an exciting new glimpse at the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Hopefully we’ll continue to see more from the film in the coming months, especially with the longer wait until its inevitable release date.
Here’s the plot of Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which will follow the story established in the original two Ghostbusters films…
“When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.”
The film’s new cast members include Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Paul Rudd. Meanwhile original stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts have all been confirmed to return as well.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife has currently now been scheduled to hit theaters on November 11, 2021.
