[The following contains spoilers for Ghostbusters: Afterlife]

Ghostbusters: The Afterlife Looks like it’s going to end up being a bit divisive, at least in part depending on your stomach for “We’re doing it for the fans!” The thing every big franchise revival has to experience these days, but at least one viewer really liked the movie and the way it’s been so generous. Ghostbusters legacy.

This viewer is Violet Ramis Steele, the eldest daughter lately Ghostbusters Actor Harold Ramis who spoke to him recently The Hollywood Reporter On the movie Jason Reitman and what he has to say about remembering the people we’ve lost. THR Don’t spoil it, but we will (here’s your last warning): Egon Spengler, the character who played Ramis in the first two Ghostbusters, appears in hereafter As a ghost – after he died trying to prevent some bad ghostly things from happening.

Stem said THR That Reitman was smart about focusing on “capturing the character of Egon” and “not necessarily” Ramis himself, which is either a reference to the fact that this Egon does not speak or they made a point to specifically make the character look like “beautiful and trim” Egon. Stiel also emphasized that Reitman made the film “about loss and grief” with “surreal” similarities to real life even though it was still comedic. “In the end,” she says, Ghostbusters: The Afterlife It’s about “how the people we love are always with us. They don’t go away”.

Reitman secured the approval of all of Ramis’ children before he put his plan for Egon into action, as Stiel initially thought it was a “weird” idea, but eventually had at least a say in the development of the CG character, saying she was “too generous” of the director to make it Feel like part of the movie.
