Not much has been revealed about Sony's animated Ghostbusters feature since it was first announced in 2015, but it might be going for a different approach than previous franchise installments; namely, audiences may watch the events of the movie unfold from the vantage point of the ghost rather than its human characters.
According to That Hashtag Show, plans for the animated film revolve around the story of the Ghost, with the Ghostbusters as supporting characters. (Or as close as can be, since the film will still likely named after them.) No other information on the film, such as a cast or which Ghost it may focus on be, has been revealed as of yet.
Sony's goal is for the animated film -- directed and animated by Fletcher Moules -- to feel similar to the Real Ghostbusters cartoon from the '80s and '90s, which is responsible in large part for Slimer becoming the iconic Ghost that he is. Should the studio follow through with the reported approach to the movie, it would provide audiences with an interesting turn on the standard Ghostbusters film formula -- and is sure to also be a perfect marketing tool that Sony can flaunt alongside Slimer and the Ecto-1.
