Ghostbusters: The Animated Movie

In conversation with The Wrap, director Jennifer Kluska revealed Sony’s animated Ghostbusters film will enjoy a unique visual and tonal style in order to explore the “bigger, weirder stage” of both “the supernatural” and “the telling of ghost stories.”

It feels sort of very right and fitting to come back to Ghostbusters in an animated form. It feels like so many Ghostbusters fans come from that space as well. And that gives you this bigger, weirder stage to play upon. And I think we want to obviously do something very new and different, as we always do but we know that there are so many Ghostbusters fans who just are waiting to see this franchise animated again.

By design this is going to be different. I think all of the films that Sony does are very consciously stylistically and tonally different and more and more also visually. The technology and the artistry pushes the medium and we are going to be looking for our own approach that’s going to be a very specific link to the Ghostbusters franchise, to the world of supernatural and to the telling of ghost stories.

The Witcher

Showrunner Lauren Hissrich also confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that The Wild Hunt— a team of spectral hunters glimpsed at the end of season two—will also appear in the third season of The Witcher.

I think a couple of things are gonna happen right now. We set up the Wild Hunt for Ciri in the middle of Season 2 as her thinking, ‘I don’t quite understand what this is. I don’t understand why they’re in this dreamscape that I’m having.’ And then, obviously, at the very end, she visits the dark elves’ sphere and she realizes ‘these people are after me.’
