More 80's nostalgia is coming back with the new Ghostbusters movie releasing on New Year's Day!

Fond memories of being glued in front of the TV, singing along to the iconic Ghostbusters theme song when it came on. Wishing for a pet ghost like the lovable Slimer (the second friendliest ghost after Casper) or ... the incredibly cute Marshmallow Man.

Fast forward today, we get to share these experiences with modern kids!

How will they react to this cartoon and movie classic?

From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman, comes the next chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe.

In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, when a single mum and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind. The film is written by Jason Reitman & Gil Kenan.

Starring Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace and Paul Rudd. Directed by Jason Reitman.

Below, you'll find everything to introduce your kids to what the 80s was all about! 30-minute cartoomercials (my word for cartoons that were really toy commercials!), wholesome storylines, and synthesized theme music!
