Ghostbusters: Afterlife Mini Marshmallow Men

Original 'Ghostbusters' star, Bill Murray, has reacted to a teaser clip of the new movie which features cute miniature marshmallow men.

In the video shared by Sony Pictures, fans of the franchise see Bill on a video call with Ivan Reitman as he is shown the clip of the upcoming 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' movie.

Bill laughed as he watched the movie's star, Paul Rudd, wandering around a supermarket in Summerville, Oklahoma when he notices a packet of Stay-Puft Marshmallows moving. Bill warned, "marshmallows, look out!"

Then a tiny living version of the marshmallow brand's logo character, Mr. Stay-Puft, emerges from the packet, as Bill laughed along with the clip.

It's understood that Bill will cameo as his original character in the 2021 movie, along with Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Annie Potts.

Ivan, who features in the video call clip with Bill is the movie's producer, while his son, Jason Reitman, takes over as director.

As the teaser continues we see Bill laughing as a gang of miniature marshmallow men cause havoc in the supermarket by toasting each other and even turning themselves into s'mores.

The amused actor, who played Dr. Peter Venkman, said "that's funny, I've never seen anything like that, that looks good." He added, "that's got the feel, doesn't it?" A statement that fans may take as a positive endorsement for the franchise's reboot.

Mr. Stay-Puft has been an iconic character in the Ghostbusters franchise after first appearing in the original 1984 'Ghostbusters' film as the physical manifestation of the apocalyptic Sumerian deity Gozer.

The marshmallow men may not be the only throwback to the original film that will find its place in the new movie. We already know that the movie revolves around the grandchild of one of the original Ghostbusters. Although it's not yet been confirmed, the collection of spores, moulds and fungus seen in a previous trailer suggest a connection to Egon.

The trailer also introduces us to the Shandor Mining Company, almost certainly a reference to Ivo Shandor, the leader of the Cult of Gozer.

Ghostbusters fans will finally get to see Jason Reitman's extension to the Ghostbusters universe when the film lands in cinemas on November 11, 2021.
