Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is Mini, but Mighty in New 'Ghostbusters: Afterlife' Clip
The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is back. But he is not quite a huge as the last time fans saw him. In a new clip for Ghostbusters: Afterlife that dropped Wednesday, Stay Puft is mini but mighty.
In the preview for the highly anticipated Sony film, Paul Rudd's character is confronted by a cute, tiny Stay Puft before being overrun by a throng of evil Mini-Pufts.

The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man is, of course, one of the most iconic characters from the Ghostbusters series, giving the guys plenty to deal with at the end of the first film.
From director Jason Reitman and producer Ivan Reitman, Ghostbusters: Afterlife continues the original series storyline and features several of the actors from the first two films reprising their characters, including Bill Murray, who is back as Dr. Peter Venkman. Murray said in a recent interview it was not easy returning to the role, but he is excited for the film.
“I think [Reitman] has really got something,” Murray said during a Q&A at the recent 36th Santa Barbara Film Festival. “It was hard. It was really hard. That’s why I think it’s going to be good. We were just in it for a little while, but it was physically painful. Wearing those packs is extremely uncomfortable. We had batteries the size of batteries. They now have batteries the size of earrings. It’s still a really heavy thing to wear, all the time."
Ghostbusters: Afterlife, written by Gil Kenan and Jason Reitman, is due in theaters Nov. 11.
