The eagerly anticipated 'Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire' trailer has just dropped, exciting fans worldwide with its promise of a thrilling sequel to the 2021 hit 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife'. Set to premiere on March 22, this film brings together an impressive ensemble of actors, blending the old with the new in what looks to be an enthralling addition to the Ghostbusters saga.

The cast from 'Afterlife', including Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Mckenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, Logan Kim, and Celeste O’Connor, are joined by fresh faces such as Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, James Acaster, and Emily Alyn Lind. Significantly, 'Ghostbusters' originals - Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Annie Potts - are making a return. The trailer highlights Annie reprising her role as Janine Melnitz, the faithful Ghostbusters' receptionist, now donning the iconic Ghostbusters uniform. This symbolises a significant evolution for her character, as revealed in her interview with Empire.

The trailer packs a nostalgic punch, showcasing the return of William Atherton as Walter Peck, a character last seen in the original movie, and fans will be delighted to see the reappearance of the franchise's famous ghosts, including Slimer and the library ghost. 'Frozen Empire' also introduces a new, potato-like ghost named Pukey.

Innovation in ghost-busting technology is evident in the trailer, with the debut of a flying-drone ghost trap, indicating an exciting advancement in the tools at the Ghostbusters' disposal.

You can watch the latest trailer below, which was recently dropped and showcases glimpses of what promises to be an enthralling addition to the 'Ghostbusters' legacy.

Franchise newcomer Kumail Nanjiani's has revealed that 'Frozen Empire' draws inspiration from 'The Real Ghostbusters', the 1980s animated series. This nod to the beloved series suggests a blend of nostalgia and fresh perspective in the film's approach to the Ghostbusters universe. His remarks on X (formerly Twitter) highlight this blend, raising expectations for a unique twist on the familiar Ghostbusters narrative.

The plot centres around the Spengler family's return to the iconic New York City firehouse, bridging the gap between the new and original Ghostbusters. This union is sparked by the discovery of an ancient artefact, unleashing the Death Chill, a new threat that endangers not just New York City, but the entire world.

In 'Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire', the alliance between the new and original Ghostbusters against a formidable enemy seems to be at the core of the story. The film promises to take the franchise to new heights, while paying homage to its roots, creating a rich, multi-layered cinematic experience. Fans and newcomers alike can look forward to a film that not only respects the legacy of the original Ghostbusters but also pushes the boundaries of what a Ghostbusters film can be.

'Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire' is set for a global release this spring on March 22.
