Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ In ‘Stranger Things’ Season 2 Trailer [VIDEO]
Netflix released the first "Stranger Things" Season 2 trailer at Comic-con in San Diego, California, on July 23, Sunday. It was scored to the late Michael Jackson's song "Thriller" while being creepily narrated by Vincent Price.
Released in 1984, "Thriller" was Jackson's sixth studio album of the same name. With this song and Price's narration, the "Stranger Things" Season 2 trailer made it perfectly clear that Upside Down still remains and the life of the boys will never be the same.
"They're just trying to sweep everything under a rug and pretend everything is fine and back to normal, and it's not," Ross Duffer's brother and "Stranger Things" co-creator Matt Duffer told USA Today. He was referring to the main characters Mike Wheeler, Lucas Sinclair and Dustin Harrison played by Finn Wolfhard, Caleb McLaughlin and Gaten Matarazzo, respectively.
"People have been affected psychologically," Matt said. There are also some "potentially supernatural after-effects," he added.
Matt and Ross were joined by their fellow executive producer Shawn Levy at the series' panel during the Comic-con, according to Variety. The producers confirmed that Sadie Sink and Dacre Montgomery will joined the series as siblings Max and Billy, respectively.
The show's creators also confirmed that Brown's character is a full-on character in the second season. However, they did not reveal when Eleven will finally return to Hawkins.
As seen in the Stranger Things" Season 2 trailer, the boys are wearing "Ghostbusters" costume and having some kind of a trap that was used in the movie. At the end of the trailer, the mysterious girl Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) apparently found a way to get out of Upside Down.
Despite being saved in "Stranger Things" Season 1, Will Byers (Noah Schnapp) is still hunted by his experience inside Upside Down as shown in the trailer of the second season, which is now set in 1984. The second season is full of 1980s pop cultural references including the popular arcade game "Dragon's Lair" and a Reagan-Bush 1984 re-election campaign yard sign.
"Stranger Things" Season 2 will premiere on Netflix on Oct. 27. Watch the trailer here:
