Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire stars McKenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard share reasons to watch new film

MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire feels a lot bigger, said Mckenna Grace, who plays Phoebe Spengler in the movie.

“It’s in New York, it brings us back to where the Ghostbusters originated so that’s special,” said McKenna. “New villain, new storylines, new problems that at least Phoebe has never encountered. It’s bigger scale, more blockbuster, action, there’s a lot. It’s very fun.”

In Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire, the Spengler family returns to where it all started – the iconic New York City firehouse – to team up with the original Ghostbusters, who’ve developed a top-secret research lab to take busting ghosts to the next level. But when the discovery of an ancient artifact unleashes an evil force, Ghostbusters new and old must join forces to protect their home and save the world from a second Ice Age.


Besides McKenna, the film also stars Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon, Finn Wolfhard, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt, Celeste O’Connor, Logan Kim and original Ghostbusters Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts.

For Finn Wolfhard, who plays Phoebe’s older brother Trevor, one of the most fun things to look forward to is seeing the new Ghostbusters work with the OG Ghostbusters. “This movie is incredibly fun because you have the original Ghostbusters teaming up with the new Ghostbusters,” said Finn. “It’s hard to believe that we’re all in the same room together, working on the same scenes. It’s very surreal but super rewarding.”

Frightening and fun

Frozen Empire’s big bad is a ghost named Garraka, who can freeze people to death. “I think that Garaka is a very frightening, frightening villain,” said McKenna.

Garraka’s deadly power is not the only thing our heroes have to worry about. There are more ghosts to face off… much, much more. “It’s pretty intense when every single ghost that the Ghostbusters have captured are all going to be released and wreak havoc on New York City,” she added. “And there’s a massive, giant crazy demon god trying to take over the world and kill everybody with ice. It’s a little bit frightening and a little bit intense.”

Thankfully, the Ghostbusters franchise is known for mixing scares with comedy very well. “There’s a lot of scary moments, but it always has a levity to it because of all the comedy, which the first one did expertly well,” said Finn. “Gil [Kenan, director] and Jason [Reitman, writer/producer] have tried to inject that kind of DNA into these films.“

Made for fans by fans

McKenna Grace, Finn Wolfhard, and the rest of the cast are fans of the original films, and of course, the original Ghostbusters. “Being a part of an incredible legacy is a big honor,” shared Finn.

“It’s for the fans made by fans, so there’s a lot of love,” added Grace.
