A Beloved Original Ghostbusters Character Returns In Frozen Empire

Since Slimer wasn’t in the previous “Ghostbusters” movie, his “Frozen Empire” comeback is surely good news for dedicated fans of the franchise. What’s more, this surprise announcement also hints at the overall tone fans can expect in the forthcoming sequel.

Just after the first “Frozen Empire” trailer dropped, Kumail Nanjiani — who plays a part in the film — posted on X (formerly known as Twitter), “I am a huge fan of The Real Ghostbusters (the animated series) and that show was a point of reference for this movie. The filmmakers wanted to make a long episode of the animated series. So if you love that show as I do, be excited.”

Whereas in live-action, Slimer is a fun side character, in the “Ghostbusters” cartoon series, he’s part of the core cast and an eventual member of the Ghostbusters team. Between Nanjiani’s tweet and Slimer’s return, it appears that “Frozen Empire” will resemble a story from “The Real Ghostbusters.” Without seeing footage of him in action, of course, it’s still unclear if he’ll behave like he did in previous movies or like his animated counterpart, but Nanjiani’s post raises the possibility of a Slimer that works with the Ghostbusters team for the first time in live-action.

Directed by Gil Kenan, “Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire” arrives in theaters on March 29, 2024.
