Josh Gad really is the gift that keeps on giving as he's reunited the original stars of yet another classic movie.

Gad, whose famous roles include snowman Olaf in the Frozen movies and Gaston's sidekick LeFou in the live-action Beauty and the Beast, has shared a preview of the latest episode of his series Reunited Apart on YouTube and it promises a virtual reunion between the stars of iconic 1984 comedy Ghostbusters.

Judging by the preview, the reunion will feature the film's director Ivan Reitman and actors Bill Murray (Peter Venkman), Dan Aykroyd (Ray Stantz), Ernie Hudson (Winston Zeddemore), Sigourney Weaver (Dana Barrett) and Annie Potts (Janine Melnitz), as well as Reitman's director son Jason who helms upcoming sequel Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

The preview kicks off with Gad chatting to Jason, who asks which of his films Gad would like to talk about before he suddenly realises that Gad actually wants him to connect him with his dad.

Potts then makes an appearance to ask whether Gad believes in things like "UFOs", "the Loch Ness Monster", "telekinetic movement" and "the theory of Atlantis".

Happy to play along Gad answered: "If there's a reunion in it I'll believe in anything you say".

The full episode will premiere on Gad's YouTube channel on Monday (June 15), which promises to give us all a great Monday.

This isn't the first cast the actor has sprinkled his reunion magic over either, as he's already managed to get the stars of The Goonies, Lord of the Rings and Back to the Future back together too.

What's more, the Reunited Apart series has been created to raise funds for different charities with the Ghostbusters episode raising money for Equal Justice Initiative, an organisation that works to end mass incarceration, excessive punishment and racial inequality in the US.

Frozen 2 is available to pre-order on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K now.
