After Ghostbusters: Afterlife, the upcoming Ghostbusters sequel, was delayed until March 2021 due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, there is still one thing to keep fans going in the meantime.

A documentary about the iconic 1984 comedy, Cleanin' Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters, is set to premiere next week.

The documentary features over 40 interviews with the stars of the film as well as the creators working behind the scenes who helped make the world.

"Over 10 years in the making, the documentary also chronicles the achievements made by the visual effects crew in creating the ghosts during the pre-digital age when special effects were still evolving," reads a statement.

"We truly hope to enthral and enlighten audiences, fans and filmmakers alike, as we reveal the wonderful personalities, incomparable talent, and craftsmanship that went into making a film that captured the hearts of generations; Ghostbusters."

With the sequel on the horizon (a really faraway horizon), this isn't the only time in which the original cast have been brought together to discuss the film.
