The Original Ghostbusters Take Their First Photo with the New Cast
How many comedians who also bust ghosts can you fit in one picture? The original Ghostbusters cast and the new found out today. Sony also just debuted a featurette on each Ghostbuster from Paul Feig's film, a closer look at the Ecto-1, and you can hear a sampling of the new theme song from Fall Out Boy and Missy Elliott.
As we reported previously, the original cast will meet with the new today on Jimmy Kimmel Live to celebrate Ghostbusters Day. And here's your proof.

Left to right starting in the back it's Bill Murray, Leslie Jones, Dan Aykroyd (who recently gave his thoughts on the film), and Ernie Hudson. Then down in front we've got Annie Potts, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, and Kristen Wiig. Paul Feig posted another photo and also mentioned Sigourney Weaver's absence was because she's working on a movie in London.
I mean, c'mon, how can this picture NOT make you happy? This is an epic group of people. Happy Ghostbusters Day! ???????????? pic.twitter.com/s5kSvaRZs5 — Paul Feig (@paulfeig) June 8, 2016
It's also 32 years to the day Ghostbusters was first released in theaters (Gremlins, too!). Sony has released some featurettes to let you get to know the new characters better. Fair warning, these videos include some new footage and guest-stars so you might want to skip them if you were hoping to go in fresh.

Listen very closely on this Ecto-1 video and you'll hear the new Ghostbusters theme.
