Now, almost forty years after the birth of this franchise, Ghostbusters She goes back to the family that put her where she is today. Jason Reitman, son of the director of the first two films, was chosen to carry out this film full of heart and love for the original story. In this sense, it is clearly a case of a film aimed directly at fans of the brand. Therefore, it is important to know what movies to watch if you do not have so much knowledge.

This new movie, Ghostbusters: The Legacy, dialogues directly with the 1984 film, with the first. Both from the most characteristic elements of the franchise, such as the Cadillac with its license plate Ecto 1, like the ghostbusters traps, even because of the stories that the characters will tell. In each mention that someone makes of what used to be the chaos in New York in the 80s with the ghosts in the streets, only reference is made to the events seen in that first film.

Who stars in Ghostbusters: The Legacy

The film directed by Jason Reitman has a cast starring children, with Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard like the main ones. The two of them give life to the grandchildren of Egon Spengler, character played by Harold Ramis (who passed away in 2014), and they are the ones who, after moving to the middle of nowhere on a farm, begin to discover old artifacts that made ghostbusters famous almost forty years ago.

The cast is completed, among others, by the figures of Carrie Coon, as the daughter of Stay, and Paul Rudd, like the school teacher somewhat unmotivated by the educational system. Of the two, it is Paul the one who seems to have the most fun in the whole film and is the one who often acts as an “encyclopedia”, telling the children what are the things they found in the basement of the abandoned farm. The third piece in the story is the one that says Logan Kimchi in the role of Podcast: It is his second job as a professional but he manages a humorous rhythm worthy of an actor with many years of career.
