Ghostbusters: Afterlife will begin haunting theaters on November 19, 2021, and the first wave of rave reviews from movie critics suggest we’re all in for a treat later this year.
Critic Scott Menzel tweeted, “Ghostbusters: Afterlife is the Ghostbusters sequel that I’ve been waiting all my life to see. It is nostalgia done right. A perfect blend of classic Ghostbusters moments with a fresh & unique twist for a whole new generation to enjoy.”
It’s an opinion returning star Sigourney Weaver agrees with. Weaver is back as Dana Barrett in the sequel to the original classics, the character she played in both of the original films.
Weaver tells ET Canada (via Movie Web), “[Ghostbusters: Afterlife] is full of heart. It’s very funny. It’s very charming. And it will surprise everybody. It’s just a glorious film.”
Two more months. The wait is almost over!
In this year’s Ghostbusters film, written by Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan:

Afterlife‘s cast includes Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Paul Rudd.
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts are all coming back for this sequel to the original classic, reprising their iconic and beloved roles.
