A bit far off from now sadly, but I’m always excited to announce new Ghostbusters animated news!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony has announced that they will be releasing a new Ghostbusters animated series entitled “Ghostbusters: Ecto Force” which will be hitting the small screen in 2018. This series is said to be part of the cinematic universe the begins with this summer’s Ghostbusters reboot that is directed by Paul Feig and stars Melissa McCartney, Leslie Jones, Kristin Wiig and Kate McKinnon.
The series will take place in the year 2050 and will follow a new cast of ghost chasers who capture ghosts and spirits from around the world with help from local teams and some very cool gear.
It sounds like it will be aimed at a younger audience, which isn’t surprising since the original films animated series was also aimed at the same crowd (I.E.; my generation).
As fun sounding as this is, imagine if Sony released a more mature Animatrix type series or one off film. It could be made by different animators showcasing the true horrors that some of the Ghostbusters face and what kind of toll it takes being on the team.
Hey, a fanboy can dream can’t he?
