The Ghostbusters cast just got a whole lot smaller!

The 1984 classic got a gender-flipping remake in 2016. Now, to help promote the DVD and Blu-ray release of this summer's hit flick, it's changing again -- this time with kids!


ToddleWood founder Tricia Messeroux recruited four girls and one boy for a photo shoot to recreate the Ghostbusters movie poster, and ET was behind the scenes.

"I love the proton pack and the outfit," said 8-year-old Brooklyn Barrios, who was dressed as Kate McKinnon's character. "I ain't afraid of no ghost!"

Barrios was joined by 7-year-old Deamoraya Newsome (dressed as Leslie Jones), 8-year-old Gavin Keathley (dressed as Melissa McCarthy), 6-year-old Declan Holvath (dressed as Chris Hemsworth) and 10-year-old Karis Merrill (dressed as Kristen Wiig). While the grownup cast asked people to call on them when they saw a ghost, ET found out who the kids would call in such a situation.

"My mom," Newsome admitted.

"Maybe my dad," said Keathley. "And also my mom."

"My brother," said Barrios, "because he is really strong."

Since 2008, Messeroux has transformed everyday kids into well-known superstars through her company, ToddleWood, dressing up children as celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, P. Diddy, Audrey Hepburn, Jennifer Lopez and more in fun photo shoots.

Ghostbusters is now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital.
