STRANGER THINGS turned Hall H UPSIDE-DOWN at their first visit to San Diego Comic-Con! The passion for this show is obvious and the energy in the room was enough to power a bunch of Christmas lights strung haphazardly in a typical Indiana home in the 80s! Show creators Matt and Ross Duffer were joined by the entire show’s primary cast (excluding Winona Ryder) to give discuss the success of Season 1 and give fans a sneak peeks into Season 2. The cast in attendance included:
- Your favorite eggo loving lady: Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven)
- The boys: Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin Henderson), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas Sinclair), Noah Schnapp (Will Byers), Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler)
- The helpful local cop: David Harbour (Chief Hopper)
- The lovebirds: Natalia Dyer (Nancy Wheeler) and Joe Keery (Steve Harrington)
Top 5 Moments from the Stranger Things SDCC Panel:
- BARB CAME BACK: The Duffer Brothers can’t get rid of Barb THAT easy! Shannon Purser (Barb) surprised the audience when approached the microphone during the Q&A and asked if Barb would be back for Season 2. Show creators confirmed that Barb IS in fact dead, and will not be returning, but her death WILL BE AVENGED!!
- NEW CHARACTERS: The show will be adding new characters for Season 2! Actors Sean Astin, Paul Reiser, Dacre Montgomery and Sadie Sink joined the panel and briefly discussed (spoiler-free) their roles within our current storyline.
- PATTON OSWALT: The famous comedian was the moderator for the panel and was a constant source of quick-witted jokes and intriguing questions for the cast and creators. You may recognize his voice as the famous Disney rat chef, Ratatouille!
- WE FINALLY GET MORE WILL: Now that Will is back from the Upside-down (OR IS HE!?!) you can expect him to be a lead cast member with plenty of screen time.
- SEASON 2 PREVIEW PREMIERE: Hall H was treated to the World Premiere of the Season 2 trailer, twice! Michael Jackson’s Thriller (with Vincent Price’s notorious narration) is the perfect 80’s track to set the mood for this eerie season.
STRANGER THINGS Season 2 of premiers this Halloween on Netflix.
