The original cast of the 1984 Ghostbusters reunited virtually for Josh Gad on his fun Reunited Apart web series! The full episode of that has been released online, and it’s highly entertaining!
Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts, and even William Atherton all showed up. They were also joined by director Ivan Reitman, and his son and director of the upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Jason Reitman.
It’s very entertaining to hear everyone reminisce and share stories about this movie. Murray shared the story of the time he realized that Ghostbusters was going to be a huge deal, saying:
“Ivan asked us out at Thanksgiving and showed us the early cut of the ballroom scene. The first catching the slimmer scene. Remember this? Danny? Sigourney? Anybody remember this? Jason? [They do not.]… but he showed us those scenes without all the special effects done in it. From that moment on, I remember going back to work on Monday and going, ‘Guys, let’s all calm down. It’s going to be really big.”
When talking about the upcoming movie, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Murray said that it will bring the same magic that the original movie did for fans. When talking about the script he said:
The script is good. It’s got lots of emotion in it. It’s got lots of family in it, with through lines that are really interesting. It’s gonna work.
There are also a few other surprise guest’s appearances in the episode.
