Now, months after this new film is released, Sony has released a new clip that reveals the return of Stay Puft, the famous marshmallow man of the franchise, who now will not return alone, but there will be many like him. The new less than a minute long video features several tiny Marshmallow Man in a convenience store (via ComingSoon).

Stay Puft Marshmallow Man first appeared in Ghostbusters – 97% of 1984 and also had a cameo in the Ghostbusters reboot – 73% of 2016. His appearance is that of a kind of giant marshmallow doll; He wears a sailor’s bow and scarf, as well as a sailor’s hat with the words Stay Puft, which translates to ‘Stay Fluffy’, the fictional company the doll belongs to in the film.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife follows single mother Callie (Carrie Coon) and her two children, Trevor and Phoebe (Finn Wolfhard and Mckenna Grace), who move to Summerville, Oklahoma after inheriting property from a previously unknown relative.
Unexplained earthquakes shake the city shortly after the family’s arrival and there is an old mine nearby named after Ivo Shandor, who built the Manhattan building that channeled the forces of evil in the original film. Rudd plays a local teacher who befriends Callie and her children and helps them discover their connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.
