Mckenna Grace shares a TikTok video of the iconic firehouse from the set of the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel.
It’s Ghostbusters Day! We still don’t know all that much about the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel, but Mckenna Grace has shared a video from the set showcasing the iconic Ghostbusters firehouse
Mckenna Grace posted the video on TikTok in full costume as she strolls through the interior of the firehouse set, which also includes the Ecto-1, before heading outside. The exterior mostly consists of the surrounding street and an awful lot of green-screen.
The return to the original headquarters of the Ghostbusters was teased during CinemaCon in April, but it’s great to see it back in action. The official Ghostbusters Twitter account also dropped a teaser poster for the Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel with the ghost logo covered in ice. What could it mean?
Ghostbusters: Afterlife director Jason Reitman was expected to take the helm of the sequel, but he stepped down to allow Gil Kenan to direct. “It’s an absolute honor to pick up the proton pack and step behind the camera for the next chapter of the Spengler family saga,” Gil Kenan said in a statement at the time. “I just wish I could go back to 1984 and tell the kid in the sixth row of the Mann Valley West that one day he was going to get to direct a Ghostbusters film.”
In his own statement, Jason Reitman said: “A few years ago, my father handed me the keys to Ecto-1 and together we made Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Words will never express how grateful I am to have made a film with my father by my side. It’s now time to hand those keys to my creative partner and fellow Ghostbuster Gil Kenan, a brilliant director who will keep the Spengler spirit alive. I can only hope to provide him the same producorial care and support that my father showed me.” Reitman did co-write the script for the sequel with Kenan and will also produce.
In addition to Mckenna Grace as Phoebe Spengler, the sequel also features the return of Finn Wolfhard as Trevor Spengler, Carrie Coon as Callie Spengler, Paul Rudd as Gary Grooberson, Celeste O’Connor as Lucky Domingo, Logan Kim as Podcast, Dan Aykroyd as Raymond Stantz, and Ernie Hudson as Winston Zeddemore. Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, James Acaster, and Emily Alyn Lind are also included in the case, as well as a surprising return from the original movie.
The Ghostbusters: Afterlife sequel will hit theaters on December 20th.
