Sony Pictures’ animation division has announced plans for “Ghostbuster: Ecto Force,” a new animated TV series based on the franchise and being spearheaded by the original 1984 film’s director Ivan Reitman.
Set in the year 2050, the new show will focus on a whole new generation of Ghostbusters and the project is eyeing an early 2018 debut. It’s hardly the first cartoon based on the franchise as the 1980s saw “The Real Ghostbusters,” an animated series based on the films and one which still holds a place in many fans hearts.
