Not this coming June but *next* June will mark the 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters, as Ivan Reitman’s film was originally released on June 8, 1984. Via Ghostbusters News and KidScreen, we’ve learned that all sorts of 35th anniversary fun is in store for 2019, including new consumer products inspired by the classic film.
KidScreen shared the 35th anniversary logo and details…
“A number of partners will launch new products timed with next June’s anniversary event, including Playmobil (figures and playsets), Mattel (games, activities and crafts), NECA (collectibles and novelty gifts), Hybrid (apparel), Mad Engine (apparel), C-Life (apparel) and Hallmark (social expressions, plush products and ornaments). Key categories for the consumer products program will include toys, apparel and publishing. Products will begin rolling out globally on June 8, 2019, with subsequent ranges launching in anticipation of Halloween and the holiday season.
Beyond the toy shelf, the celebration will also hit the road with an orchestral tour featuring musicians performing the film’s score live at screenings in the US and Canada. Additionally, Sony will launch a number of social media campaigns in celebration of the movie’s anniversary, as well as an augmented reality game entitled Ghostbuster World that will let users capture ghosts in the real world.”
Additionally, the new Ghostbusters website is launching this June 8, Ghostbusters Day!
