Netflix has released a new poster for the first season of Stranger Things inspired by one of the series’ biggest influences, Rob Reiner’s Stand by Me based on the Stephen King novel The Body.
Not only did were the young characters created by The Duffer Brothers inspired by the four friends in Stand by Me, the brothers actually used the Stand by Me script when casting the roles of Mike, Dustin, Lucas, and Will due to not having much material written beyond the pilot during the casting process. In addition, the brothers also titled the fourth episode of the series “The Body” after the title of the original King novel.
You can check out the poster below.
Stranger Things 2 stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, and Noah Schnapp. In addition to Astin, the series has also added Paul Reiser (Aliens), Brett Gelman (Jobs), Dacre Montgomery (Power Rangers), Danish actress Linnea Berthelsen, and Broadway star Sadie Sink into the mix as well. Here’s the official synopsis:
It’s 1984 and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
Stranger Things 2 hits Netflix October 27, 2017.
