Ghostbusters Original Cast Kimmel

Even if you’re not excited about the new Ghostbusters reboot/sequel, you might want to tune in to Jimmy Kimmel Live next Wednesday.

On June 8th, Kimmel will celebrate Ghostbusters Day (the anniversary of the original movie’s release date) by uniting the cast of the original movies with the cast of the new movie. That’s right: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts will all appear together on television for the first time in a very long time.

The four beloved Ghostbusters stars will be joined by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, who are taking over as the new Ghostbusters in the upcoming film.

“Seeing the original and new Ghostbusters all together (will be) like being in the presence of the comedy gods on Mount Olympus,” Ghostbusters director Paul Feig told USA Today in a statement. “This is an epic summit of some of the funniest people on the planet. Long live the Ghostbusters!”

Continuing the celebration, the original Ghostbusters will be re-released in over 800 theaters around the US. The screenings will also feature a sneak peek at the new Ghostbusters movie, which is scheduled to release on July 15th.
