Looks like there’s going to be a new Ghostbusters cartoon coming in 2018. Currently titled Ghostbusters Ecto Force, the new film aims to send the Ghostbusters into future as it takes place in 2050. It features an all new team that will be taking the Ghostbusters on tour as this series will take place around the world so the busters can team up with other Ghostbusting teams. My analysis can be seen below and by analysis I mean pure speculation since details are paper thin. Enjoy!
New Ghostbusters Cartoon vs Movie
In my opinion this concept already sounds better than what we’re getting with this new movie. It’s staying true to the Ghostbusters mythos rather than erasing it with a reboot. The Real Ghostbusters cartoon was an important part of my childhood and The Extreme Ghostbusters helped usher me into manhood. I can only hope that Ghostbusters Ecto Force helps me deal with the stress of mortgages, balding and an oncoming midlife crisis. DANG KIDS. GET OFF MY LAWN….AND LEAVE MY ECTO COOLER ALONE!
About Ghostbusters Ecto Force
What was I talking about? Oh yes, Ghostbusters Ecto Force… as a bonus it’s being produced by the same team that brought us the Ghostbusters in the first place. As long as they treat it with the love and care that the rest of the series iterations have been provided I’m not sure where they go wrong. Let’ just hope the ill-fated 2016 movie doesn’t bomb so hard that the backers of this project don’t go running for the hills leaving the project in limbo. (No pun intended.)
What’s one thing from the Ghostbuster Franchise you want to see carried over into this new cartoon? I’m hoping for Melissa McCarthy! Who’s with me? Okay…Fine just get me more of that sweet sweet Ecto Cooler.
