Ghostbusters FAQ

How many Ghostbusters Movies are there?

There are four Ghostbusters movies: Ghostbusters (1984), Ghostbusters II (1989), Ghostbusters (2016), and Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021). A fifth film, Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, is scheduled to be released on March 22, 2024.

The main canon consists of the original Ghostbusters film, Ghostbusters II, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and the upcoming Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire. The 2016 Ghostbusters film was intended to be a reboot of the series, but it was considered a critical and commercial failure and a planned sequel was canceled.

What are the Ghostbusters' names?

The original Ghostbusters are Peter Venkman (played by Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson).

All four Ghostbusters from the original film appeared in the sequel, Ghostbusters II.

The younger Ghostbusters in Ghostbusters: Afterlife are Trevor Spengler (played by Finn Wolfhard), Phoebe Spengler (Mckenna Grace), "Podcast" (Logan Kim), and Lucky Domingo (Celeste O'Connor). Original cast members Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) briefly returned as well. The character of Egon Spengler appeared through the use of CGI and physical stand-ins, as actor Harold Ramis died in 2014.

The Ghostbusters in the 2016 reboot are Abigail "Abby" Yates (Melissa McCarthy), Erin Gilbert (Kristen Wiig), Jillian "Holtz" Holtzmann (Kate McKinnon), and Patricia "Patty" Tolan (Leslie Jones).

Who sang the Ghostbusters theme song?

Ray Parker Jr. sang the original Ghostbusters movie theme song. Run-D.M.C. recorded a rap version of the theme song for the sequel, Ghostbusters II. Three versions of the theme, by Walk the Moon, Pentatonix, and Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott, were recorded for the 2016 Ghostbusters reboot. Other renditions of the theme song have been performed by The Rasmus and Mickael Turtle.

Who played Gozer in Ghostbusters?

Gozer was physically performed by Slavitza Jovan with voiceover by Paddi Edwards in the original film. In Ghostbusters: Afterlife, Gozer is portrayed by Olivia Wilde (physically), Shohreh Aghdashloo (voice), and Emma Portner (CGI spirit).

What is the Ghostbusters' number?

The Ghostbusters' phone number was 555-2368, with no area code given. This is shown in the original 1984 film, when a commercial for the Ghostbusters plays on Dana Barrett's (Sigourney Weaver) television.
