(CNN) — For those curious about the upcoming “Ghostbusters” reboot, information is easy to find on social media.

Director Paul Feig of “Bridesmaids” and “Spy” fame has been sharing photos and information on what fans can expect when “Ghostbusters” premieres in theaters on July 22, 2016.

Here’s what has has revealed so far:

1. The new Ghostbuster uniforms are reminiscent of the original

Not only do we know that the all-female cast will don similar uniforms to those worn in the original 1984 film, but also we know that proton packs are still their weapon of choice.

2. The Ecto-1 is back!

Feig shared shots of Ecto-1, the famous car used to transport the Ghostbusters from one spooky scene to the next.

3. The cast and characters

Feig revealed the characters’ names after fans asked on Twitter. The new names are in no way reminiscent of Peter Venkman and Egon Spengler from the original.

So who you gonna call this time? Ghostbuters are Erin Gilbert, Jillian Holtzmann, Abby Yates and Patty Tolan.

While we already knew the film stars Melissa McCarthy and “Saturday Night Live” favorites Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, it’s not clear yet who is playing whom.

Other actors in the movie include Chris Hemsworth, in the secretary role originally played by Annie Potts, and Andy Garcia.

4. How they’re busting ghosts

And yes, for those who love to cosplay as Ghostbusters (and there are plenty of you out there), there’s lots of information on how to create your own in time for the movie a year from now.

Now you won’t be afraid of no ghost!
