WATCH: New video from set of Ghostbusters 2020 shows the classic Ecto-1 back in action!

It’s back! A new video (below) liked from the set of Ghostbusters 2020 seems to show the classic Ecto-1 back in action.

The car looks battered and old, and the ladder seems to be on the wrong side, but this resembles the car as it appeared in the original Ghostbusters movie in 1984 rather than the car (Ecto-1A) as seem in Ghostbusters II.

Which is odd because, if this is a sequel – essentially Ghostbusters III – as expected, then the 1A is the car that is should be.

But there’s likely an explanation – maybe the Ecto-1 and 1A are actually different cars as some have suspected or maybe there’s alternate reality shenanigans afoot.

Or maybe – just maybe – it’ll not be addressed in the movie at all?

With way, it’s great to see this iconic car back on the road for an all-new GB movie.

What do you all think? Let me know in all the usual ways, guys.

Ghostbusters will return to theaters on July 10, 2020.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
