Who else is dying to see Ghostbusters: Afterlife? I’m a Ghostbuster fool who will suffer all fools if need be. I love all things GB equally. Yep, sorry guys. I even dug the 2016 film. Don’t kill me! I’m just into GB gear and the ghosts and the whole dang world built around them. I was probably the only dude in the theater losing his mind over a Proton pistol used by Kate McKinnon in the later moments of the film. These reasons are why I’m losing my damned mind over the new ghost we were introduced to last week. His name is Muncher. He is blue and chubby and awesome.
The peek at Muncher came about during MasterChef Junior: Spain. The segment featured a look at the Ecto-1 and our new little blue ectoplasm filled Muncher.
This whole thing tracks considering we also know that we are receiving Hostess Twinkies that are themed to Ghostbusters: Afterlife. They are filled with blue cream to mimic the ectoplasm. Muncher obviously is a nostalgic thread from the same place that Slimer came from. Both of them being chubby focused, non terminal repeating phantasm class 5 full-roaming vapors.
The official synopsis goes like this:
“When a single mom and her two kids arrive in a small town, they begin to discover their connection to the original ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.”
The peeks we have seen so far of Ghostbusters: Afterlife have not featured many ghosts. Well, none really outside of fast moving little dude that the kiddos are chasing down Summerville’s main street in the Ecto-1.
The fact that we would have already seen Ghostbusters: Afterlife if it weren’t for COVID drives me crazy. But, hey at least we will be receiving the film in the fall. It definitely feels like a fall type film. The newest release date is set for November 11 and we are hoping they stick to that. The only thing better would slightly better is if it would get bumped up to Halloween.
What do you guys think about Muncher? Let us know in the comments section.
