The new movie has Phoebe (McKenna Grace) working with her brother Trevor (Finn Wolfhard), her mother Callie (Carrie Coon), and her former teacher Gary Grooberson (Paul Rudd) to keep the legacy of the Ghostbusters alive. In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, they need some help to take on a bad guy who is turning the world’s fears into a weapon.

A baddy to explore in a new trailer

In a brand-new trailer for the movie, we get a bit more information about how the team-up between the new Ghostbusters and the old team is going to work. Having Peter (Bill Murray), Winston (Ernie Hudson), and Ray (Dan Aykroyd) on their side is going to help. But the coolest part is that Janine Melnitz (Annie Potts) finally gets her own suit!

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is bringing the Ghostbusters back to New York City. After all this time, it’s nice to just be back in the city with the team. And even better that they still have the firehouse to go to!

The Afterlife post-credits scene revealed that Winston has kept the firehouse despite the Ghostbusters disbanding. That decision appears to prove wise in the first trailer, which features a New York that has frozen over:

The synopsis of the film is as follows: 

“In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.”

A bang-up cast for the return to the firehouse

Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, and McKenna Grace are all reprising their roles from Ghostbusters: Afterlife. Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts are also reprising their original Ghostbusters roles yet again, though we do not have confirmation if Sigourney Weaver will be joining the cast this time around.

We also have Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, Celeste O’Connor, and Logan Kim joining the cast. Afterlife director Jason Reitman co-wrote Frozen Empire with Gil Kenan, who also directs the sequel.

Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire is set to release on March 22, 2024.
