Nov. 8 (UPI) -- Sony Pictures released the first trailer for the sequel to Ghostbusters: Afterlife on Wednesday. Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire opens March 29 in theaters.

The trailer shows scenes of New York City, where the original 1984 Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel was set. The trailer also shows the beaches of New Jersey and nearby amusement park rides.

When the cities freeze in the middle of July, who you gonna call? The young cast of Afterlife teams up with the veteran Ghostbusters to battle the new threat.

Original Ghostbusters Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson appear in the trailer. Murray and Hudson even suit back up with their proton packs.

Afterlife writers Jason Reitman and Gil Kenan return to write. Kenan directs. Reitman is the son of the late Ivan Reitman who directed the first two films. The 2016 Ghostbusters remake was not included in continuity with Afterlife.
