Thanks to the worldwide popularity of Baby Yoda…sorry…Grogu from The Mandolorian, it shouldn’t be surprising that we’re seeing a LOT more movies & shows introduce cute, cuddly characters.
Characters whose sole purpose, if we’re being completely honest, is to explode all over social media and sell millions of toys.
Well, here’s the newest example.
In this new clip from “Ghostbusters: Afterlife”, PAUL RUDD is browsing in the grocery store when a bunch of miniature Stay-Puft Marshmallow Men start causing chaos.
They’re basically super-cute like Baby Yoda or even the Minions from “Despicable Me”, but they’re also kind of sinister, like the “Gremlins”.
But, come on, they’re basically tailor-made for plastic toys, t-shirts, and a thousand other marketing opportunities. Right?!?!
See for yourself by watching the clip above.
“Ghostbusters: Afterlife” is a continuation of the first two movies from the ’80s, but it ignores the 2016 reboot.
It’s supposed to hit theaters in November.
