Ghostbusters: Afterlife Updates: There was a whole chapter devoted to the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which included a look at the new ghost Muncher, in a recent episode of the Spanish television series MasterChef Junior.
The latest chapter of the Ghostbusters series is both a franchise revival and a direct sequel to both the original films, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. Meatballs and Stripes director Ivan Reitman helmed the 1980 hits, while Afterlife will be directed by his partner, Jason Reitman, who is known for the Juno and Up in the Air films.
Thirty years after the second film, Ghostbusters: Afterlife will take place, following a family who moves to a remote, barren town and how they soon discover the amazing mysteries that their grandfather hid, like the relation of the family to the Ghostbusters.
The story of the film seems apt, passing on to the next generation, just as the series itself has been passed on from father to son.
It has been confirmed that after seeing the movie with his son Jason, Ivan genuinely cried, confirming that the original director had seen something extraordinary about it.
According to some news about this Ghostbusters: Afterlife
There was a lot of Ghostbusters material in the MasterChef episode, according to Ghostbusters News, including a clearly identifiable car known as the Ecto-1 and a backdrop shot of an old farmhouse that looked like a still from the upcoming film. However, the life-sized Muncher replica that was suspended off a metal post was the key centerpiece.
Although Muncher from the original Ghostbuster films looks very similar to Slimer, he has several arm-legs instead, more like a tardigrade, and is neon blue, unlike Slimer’s fluorescent orange.
With viewers being expected to see the return of Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts, who will all reprise their original roles, Wolfhard will be joined in the film by Paul Rudd and Carrie Coon.
Joining the current wave of ghost hunters with a new creature that is close to Slimer, like Muncher, can be seen as a nod of appreciation and reverence for the previous films, but also as a pledge to offer a fresh and new concept.
Ghostbusters: June 11, 2021, ectoplasma-ing theatres will be the afterlife and the slimy, caterpillar-Esque Muncher.
