Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Release Date And More: Ghostbusters Frozen Empire is set to grace the cinema screens this spring, marking the culmination of a considerable wait. The announcement of a sequel to 2021’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife was made in the spring of 2022, leading to nearly a two-year anticipation for the unveiling of the final creation.
Now, in a matter of weeks, audiences will witness the return of Carrie Coon’s Callie Spengler and Paul Rudd’s Gary Grooberson to our screens – accompanied by some familiar faces. Resuming the narrative shortly after the events of Afterlife, the story unfolds in New York City, more than three decades after the occurrences in the original Ghostbusters movies. The team faces a novel threat: an assemblage of ghosts and an unusually frigid summer.
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Release Date
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire release date is scheduled for March 22, 2024, following a postponement from its initial December 2023 date. This extended waiting period spans over two years since the debut of Ghostbusters: Afterlife in November 2021.
Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire Plot
In contrast to Ghostbusters: Afterlife, where Callie Spengler (the daughter of the original Ghostbuster, Egon Spengler) and her family embarked on a new chapter in Oklahoma, Frozen Empire brings the gang back to their roots: New York City. To be more precise, they find themselves at a familiar firehouse…
Speaking to Total Film, director and co-writer Gil Kenan explained, “The move to Oklahoma in Afterlife was very much by design. We knew we had to get away from New York City in order to recontextualize what it meant to ghost-bust and what it meant to be a Ghostbuster. We wanted to refocus the stories on a character’s arc; on the arc of the Spngler family and on Phoebe in particular. We needed to get away from the apparatus of ghostbusting in order to redefine it.
“Having done that, the next task was, ‘How do you take that discovery? How do you take the path that’s been laid out in front of our characters and force them to step into the ring? What does it mean to be a Ghostbuster? What does it mean to be a Ghostbuster in New York City? And specifically, what does it mean to be a Ghostbuster in New York City when the greatest threat ever facing the institution comes to bear?’ That’s this story.”
Returning to the bustling streets of the Big Apple, certain recognizable individuals have established a clandestine laboratory for advanced research, aiming to elevate their ghostbusting endeavors. The narrative takes a compelling turn as two generations of Ghostbusters unite, compelled to collaborate when malevolent forces, unleashed by an ancient artifact, jeopardize the world by triggering a potential second Ice Age.
