Actress Mckenna Grace is confirmed to be reprising her role of Phoebe Spengler in the upcoming untitled sequel to "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" at Sony Pictures.
Her Afterlife reveal came while speaking about how she was "constantly pressuring" the film's director, Jason Reitman, for more information about what the sequel's plot will be. "I literally have no ounce of a clue what the story is," McKenna said, not even knowing what to expect from her character Phoebe. Although she may not be in the know when it comes to the plot points, McKenna is thrilled to be returning to the Ghostbusters fold. "I'm just excited to do a second one," she says, "I'm just excited to be Phoebe."
Sony revealed a sequel to 'Afterlife' was in the works back in June with the Spengler family moving to New York City. The "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" sequel is currently targeting a December 2023 release.
The latest chapter in the original Ghostbusters universe, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, made its theatrical debut in November 2021 and grossed over $200 million at the global box office.
A brand new animated series AND animated movie are also on the way, so Sony/Columbia Pictures are currently all-in on expanding the Ghostbusters Universe as much as possible.
