One of the more notable parts of Fan Fest was the teased surprise by Jason Reitman, which was revealed to be a set of outtakes and alternate take dailies from the original film, which he'd edited together (including adding some of the original score music for added effect). For the time being, Ghostbusters News is the first out of the gate with a short snippet from Venkman invesigating Dana's apartment, but I'm sure we'll see more material once people have had a chance to get home, relax, and download stuff from their SD cards. :)

Here is the panel between father and son Reitman, part 1:


This also reveals the little surprise Jason had. They found unused footage of GB84 in a bunker and he needs it for the new movie. He would not tell why, though.

I wonder what footage of GB84 he would need that he couldn't use from GB2. (Perhaps the family is related to Peck? Would also make sense why the mother is single, and why the connection to GB is not clear to them.)

Okay, so I'm getting deja vu from that 4th one. A still showed up on the official Ghostbusters website in 2016.

So in the lost footage recording, at the 18:24 mark, they showed a deleted scene of Ray flipping switches on this machine that's a background prop in the actual movie then he takes a drink.

I vaguely remember it was supposed to be the charging station for the Proton Packs. I could be wrong. But I know I saw it before, there was still of this on a trading card? A one of the book adaptations? I think this thing was talked about here on GBFans but for the life of me I can't find the thread.

But looking at the clothing Ray wears in the scene plus some previous stills of Egon, and what he's wearing, working on the trap and thrower seen in I know at least the GB Storybook

I think this scene/stills take place in Chapter 10 right before the take out dinner scene and Janine gets the call from the Sedgewick. Ray and Egon looks like they might have even been in the same scene. Like in the 2nd floor lab area where Dana was interviewed, while Egon is hard at work on the equipment like there's nothing wrong, Ray has become a little dispassionate at the lack of calls - and that's implied by the way he's flipping the switches and taking that drink. Then the scene shifted to I guess Peter bringing up the Chinese takeout, Ray informs it represents the last of the petty cash, etc.

EDIT: Devilmanozzy helped and pointed me to appearance of the machine in the Ghostbusters Handbook. (Spook Central has it: https://www.theraffon.net/~spookcentral ... manual.pdf) and it appeared in the 'interview' scenes near the camera when Dana is interviewed and left of possessed Louis when he smells a pizza slice.

There's also a still of Janine talking to Egon in that same lab area on SC.
