The Ghostbusters live on. Though we may never get a sequel to 2016’s Ghostbusters starring Kate McKinnon, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Leslie Jones, Sony Animation is still moving forward with their animated feature about the ghost hunting team.
According to The Hashtag Show, the animated film will be unique in that we will not be following the living and breathing Ghostbusters on their next adventure, but will rather experience the film from the point-of-view of a ghost. No further specifics are known about the narrative at this point, but this is the first real detail we have about the film, so we’ll take it.
Fletcher Moules, best known for the Clash of Clans short he directed, will be directing the feature-length animated Ghostbusters film. The film is said to share the spirit of the ’80s animated TV series The Real Ghostbusters, where Slimer more or less became a member of the official team. So, it is possible we are getting a film told from the perspective of that popular specter, though there are a number of different directions Moules could take this idea.
Though there is no release date for the animated Ghostbusters film yet, but producer Ivan Reitman has previously said the plan is for a new Ghostbusters project to drop in 2019. Expect to learn what it’s like to be an innocent ghost hunted by a group of non-licensed clowns in two years… maybe.
