'A Stranger Things Christmas' carries on from where season one ended.
'Stranger Things' has been turned into a 'Peanuts' style cartoon called 'A Stranger Things Christmas' which has now gone viral. Apparently kicking off from where season one left off, it follows the same format as 'A Charlie Brown Christmas' and features several of the main characters as Charles Schulz cartoons.
'Stranger Things' gets animated
The short film was created by filmmaking duo Leigh Lahav and Oren Mendez and follows Will Byers in the aftermath of his rescue from the Upside Down. Despite being apparently safe and well at home, he just can't shake the feeling that something's wrong with him. Possibly because he keeps regurgitating alien slugs.
Set in the same snow-ice backdrop as 1965's 'A Charlie Brown Christmas', it begins with Will and his lisping friend Dustin talking behind a wall just like Charlie and his lisping friend Linus. 'Will Byers, you're the only person I know who can be rescued from a mysterious paranormal universe and still find a way to feel crummy about it', says Dustin. 'Maybe what you really need is some good psychiatric help.'
Like the original, Will goes ahead and seeks out psychiatric help; though Eleven's only advice is, of course, 'Eggos'. Probably better than Mike's suggestion of listening to the intensely creepy 'Stranger Things' soundtrack. It's all okay in the end for Will though, when he finally realises that he should 'feel happy the whole town came together to save [him]'. However, the final image in the clip is of a filthy Barb lying in darkness covered in alien slugs, and who still has not been rescued from the Upside Down.
There's also no Snoopy in this re-imagining, though there is a Snoopy-sized demogorgon.
'Stranger Things' is set to return to Netflix with season two next year, and while most of the cast have been confirmed to come back, Millie Bobby Brown who plays Eleven (and creators Matt and Ross Duffer) refuse to confirm or deny her return after her character's mysterious disappearance in the final episode.
