You'll never guess what terrible creature the all-female four must bust in the remake of the much-loved Ghostbusters films...

A ghost! Surprise!

The villain for the new Ghostbusters movie has been revealed in the unconventional form of a Mattel toy.

Here's an Instagram snap from toy fanatic Pixel Dan, taken at Toy Fair 2016 in New York:

Alongside the image, Dan wrote:

Confirmed at this morning that this is the main villain in the new movie.

Looks somewhat familiar, doesn't it? A bit like this guy:

Who ya gonna call?
Who ya gonna call?

We do know there'll be a powerful demon in the forthcoming film, and his name will be Rowan (Neil Casey). Also, the busters will tackle an invasion of ghosts in Manhattan.

Back in December EW reported on the new ghosts:

Dead criminals from all eras of New York’s under­belly past have returned to roost among the living in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot. Pilgrims, old-­timey sailors, Revolutionary War spirits, and even a couple of zoot­-suited gangsters are ready to take on four formidable female busters looking to rid the city of its phantasmic filth.

So it seems the descriptions don't quite match up. Hmm ... We'll have to await more information to get any solid answers on what the new version of the Ecto-1 ghost mobile will be chasing. Any ideas?

For some ghoulish nostalgia, check out these apparitions from the '80s:

This is the first feature film in the franchise since the first two in 1984 and 1989. Plot details are still as murky as ectoplasm.

Here's the trailer teaser from February 14 for the new film:

The film premieres in the US on July 15.

What kind of ghost would you like to see in the remake?
