Ghostbusters: Ecto Force postponed for animated feature


In June 2016, Sony Pictures Animation announced Ghostbusters: Ecto Force, an all-new animated series meant to wrangle up the paranormal sometime in 2018. According to the franchise’s creator Ivan Reitman, the show’s production has been temporarily suspended to focus attention on an upcoming animated Ghostbusters feature film.

Yeah, we put [Ecto Force] on hold. We got a lot of inquiries and interest from different, uh, television networks to put it on and then at the last second, we decided to hold on the deal and really focus on the new Ghostbusters animated feature and sort of have that kick off the world and I think it’s because I knew the animated feature was going to bring–going to at least go a long way to bring back the classical story we originally started and, uh, I wanted that to come first.

This information was revealed through an interview Empire conducted with Reitman at the San Diego Comic-Con. He also gave some brief hints on the new Ghostbusters animated film, hinting that the movie may be told through the perspective of a ghost and will explore the ghost world. The animated feature is set to come out as early as 2019/2020. Ivan Reitman is set to co-direct the film alongside Fletcher Moules.

Sony Pictures Animation launched two animated TV series this year in co-operation with two Canadian animation studios. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was produced by DHX Media and launched on Cartoon Network and YTV. Produced by Nelvana, Hotel Transylvania: The Series debuted in June on Disney Channel and will run on Teletoon this fall.
