WATCH: We're reintroduced to some classic characters in new Ghostbusters: Afterlife trailer

We also get to see some of the classic ghosts from the original movies.

It has been 32 years since the last Ghostbusters movie (not including the 2016 reboot), and while we were originally to get a new sequel in 2020, the pandemic put a stop to that.

Now, over a year of delays later, we get a brand new trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife, and we also get a much stronger sense of how the story will tie into the original movies.

A single mother (Carrie Coon) and her two children (McKenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard) move to a new town, apparently to check out a house left behind by their relative, Igon Spengler.

At the same time, the small town is being struck by random earthquakes, which may be related to an old mine once belonged to the alleged occultist Ivo Shandor.

We've already been introduced to Paul Rudd's character, a local school teacher who is investigating the earthquakes, but this new trailer reintroduces us to Janine (Annie Potts), and some of the iconic ghosts - the Marshmallow Man, Slimer, and we're pretty sure that was the Demon Dog busting out of the supermarket.

And then, right at the end of the trailer, we get a slight glimpse of Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd), and rumour has it that Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson will also be making appearances in the final movie.

The movie is being directed by Jason Reitman (the son of Ivan Reitman, who directed the originals), and is co-written by Reitman and Gil Kenan (Monster House, Poltergeist).

Ghostbusters: Afterlife is released in Irish cinemas on Thursday, 11 November.
