Egon states that Ivo Shandor began plotting to summon Gozer to destroy the world shortly after UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne. Professor Broom states that UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo was just the public face of the "Occult Wars" that began shortly after the First World War. During this time, Grigori Rasputin (yes, THAT Rasputin) began plotting to summon the Ogdru Jahad to destroy the world. Both of them failed, but were eventually succeeded in their efforts.

Since it involved incubating a powerful cosmic entity, the initial stages of Dana's pregnancy took years instead of weeks. Fortunately, she had a husband to attribute the pregnancy to at the time when it became more apparent. Oscar's presumably strong spiritual presence is what attracted the pink slime in the beginning of Ghostbusters II, even before Vigo chose him as his vessel.

[[WMG: Venkman's experiment at the beginning of ''Ghostbusters'' was actually working, and the "mood slime" in ''Ghostbusters II'' comes from human waste.]]

\n** They might be called "terror dogs", because they kinda look like dogs and they are scary. Maybe that's just the English name of a zuul. Kinda like guinea pigs is the English name of what the natives of South America knew by a completely different name (and are not pigs). Or how Hounds of Tindalos in the Cthulhu Mythos are not actual dogs - but the "hound" descriptor is a good way to describe the unknown due to an analogy.

** Egon shows some symptoms of Aspergers syndrome, too- social awkwardness and a similar obsession with a single topic (the supernatural). This troper doesn't fall on the autism spectrum, but several of my friends do, and one of them described Egon and Ray as "two halves of one Aspie."

Plus, Egon has a collection of "molds, spores and funguses".

** Alternatively they will all die horrible and embarrassing deaths as a TakeThat at the fans of the original who were complaining about the new movie.

[[WMG:The cameos of those in the original film in the reboot will have a PassingTheTorch meaning to them.]]
The actors will be brought back to do some sort of way of acknowledging the newer team. It won't be as the characters from the previous film but little nudges. I think maybe the cameos will be in selling the team their equipment. Perhaps Ernie Hudson sells them the Echo-1 and Annie Potts will sell them their base of operation. Maybe Dan Aykroyd suggest an idea for the Proton Packs and Bill Murray comments about them needing uniforms.

*** Well, maybe the planet and its inhabitants are even bigger.

We don't know exactly how old she is, but it's entirely possible she was around during the time of the dinosaurs. She visited then and, like the people in the above theory, the dinosaurs chose the form which was the most harmless: a rock. [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt They were wrong]].

the species that we call demon dogs are called the Zuuls? proof? "many shubs and zuuls knew what it was like to be roasted in the belly of a sloar that day"

to:

\n* Two problems with this theory. One: the species is referred to in multiple sources as "terror dog." Two: even in the human world, it's not uncommon to name a person after a different species. Ask anyone named Robin, Bunny, Tiger, ect.

** In the Wii version of the Game, Egon's notes in Tobin's Spirit Guide essentially validate Ray's choice. Egon remarks that had any of the Ghostbusters truly thought of nothing, Gozer may have simply moved on to someone else to make its' choice, and that it might have chosen literal "nothingness" as its' final Destructor form.
