Disguise to launch new costume range based on Ghostbusters and upcoming Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Toy and consumer products manufacturer JAKKS Pacific has entered into an agreement with Sony Pictures Consumer Products for its costume division Disguise to produce costumes based on the hit film Ghostbusters, as well upcoming theatrical release Ghostbusters: Afterlife (set to release exclusively in US cinemas on 19 November).

Disguise will design, market, manufacture and distribute costumes, costume accessories, inflatables and trunk-or-treat kits for both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters: Afterlife, commencing this autumn.

“There are few films that become a pop culture phenomenon that simultaneously lend themselves to Halloween costumes so brilliantly as the Ghostbusters franchise does,” says Tara Hefter, President and GM of Disguise. “Disguise is beyond thrilled to be working with Sony Pictures Consumer Products for the first time…Ghostbusters: Afterlife is sure to be a hit and will bring even more kids into the Ghostbusters fan club.”
