Sony Pictures has released the first trailer for its upcoming film Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

The film is a sequel to Ghostbusters (1984) and Ghostbusters II (1989), ignoring the events of the Ghostbusters reboot (2016) which was set in a different continuity. The movie picks up thirty years after the events of Ghostbusters II when Egon Spengler's daughter Callie (Carrie Coon) and her children Trevor (Finn Wolfhard) and Phoebe (Mckenna Grace) move into a farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. As they adjust to their new home, supernatural events begin taking place, sparking the interest of Mr. Grooberson (Paul Rudd), a fan of the original Ghostbusters team. Some of the disturbances seem to be related to a mine belonging to the Shandor Corporation, presumably also the creation of Ivo Shandor (who built the apartment building that proved so troublesome in the first film).

It's been confirmed that original Ghostbusters Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson), Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts) and Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) will appear, and Egon (the late Harold Ramis) will appear in flashback material using footage from the original films.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife will be released on 10 July 2020.
