McKenna Grace teases her return as Phoebe Spangler in Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2 in a new TikTok video. Ghostbusters: Afterlife was released in 2021, with Grace joining a new cast that also included Paul Rudd, Finn Wolfhard, and Carrie Coon, with Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Ernie Hudson all making appearances. The story follows the family of Egon Spangler, Harold Ramis’ character from the original films, as they move to rural Oklahoma to take care of his affairs after his passing, only to discover a ghostly threat. Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2 is currently filming, with the core cast returning to continue the Spangler family story.
Grace took to TikTok to share a video that teases Phoebe’s look in Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2.
The video sees the actor as herself before transitioning to Phoebe’s distinct black, curly hair, with the caption reading, “Who ya gonna call?” While Grace was already known to be part of the sequel, this offers one of the first glimpses of her character’s return look, with her now being roughly four years older since she filmed Ghostbusters: Afterlife.
What To Expect From The Ghostbusters: Afterlife Sequel
Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2 is filming, with the production teasing their return to the infamous firehouse. The sequel’s story is under wraps, but it will continue to follow the Spangler family, with Grace, Wolfhard, and Coon returning. However, the film is shifting from rural Oklahoma back to New York, where it all began, with Rudd’s Grooberson also tagging along.
Set photos have also recently confirmed Ernie Hudson’s presence, along with the return of William Atherton, who played the antagonistic Walter Peck in the original Ghostbusters. The cast has also been expanded to include Kumail Nanjiani and Patton Oswalt, James Acaster, Emily Alyn Lind, and Celeste O’Connor. While their roles are unknown, Rudd was seen possibly hiding a Ghostbusters flight suit under a black cloak, hinting at a new team in Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2, which could include Nanjiani and Oswalt, with Atherton’s Peck again acting as a hindrance.
Jason Reitman, the son of the late Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, was at the helm of Ghostbusters: Afterlife. He is still onboard as a producer for the sequel, but he turned directing duties over to Gil Kenan, who co-wrote both films with Reitman. While a new director is behind the camera, the creative team remains the same, with the sequel’s look and tone likely to be on par with the last film. Further details on Ghostbusters: Afterlife 2 will be forthcoming as production continues.
