AMC (the company I'm still furloughed from) updated this on our official website and Facebook yesterday...

My favorite segment, of course:
"Sony Pictures launched the first official look at the new film on December 2, 2019, and with it established not only the new group of central protagonists that the story will follow, but also the mystery at the center of the plot, and how everything will link back to the events featured in both GHOSTBUSTERS and GHOSTBUSTERS II."
I'm the type that gets excited by the mere mention of II
in any article about Afterlife
, and it's so exciting to read that the events of II
will have some significance to the "mystery" of the plot in the new movie. My own instant reaction is that there's some possibly some important common factor in the major supernatural events of 1984 and 1989, and along with the new characters, we get to learn what that is.
Let the speculation begin!
Edit: This was also interesting, as far as the official movie canon is concerned.
"While there, the kids learn not only about a series of strange earthquakes that have been plaguing the town, but also the secret history of heroes in the 1980s who saved the world twice
from strange invasions of evil forces in New York."
