You probably thought I was going to go a weekend without talking about Stranger Things, didn’t you? Sadly, you were mistaken–but maybe you’ll be grateful when you see what the internet hath unearthed from this crazy-adorable cast. We’ve watched them get scared, we’ve been scared ourselves by this creepy VR video and we’ve been making everything stranger thanks to this Stranger Things generator based on the iconic 80s logo used on the series.
Did you know, though, that in addition to just being stinking cute, the kid members of Stranger Things are also musically inclined? Many of their performances are available online, including this video of Eleven herself, Millie Bobby Brown, singing John Lennon’s “Imagine”. (Brown also has a YouTube channel dedicated to her various performances, which she resumed posting videos to after working on the Netflix series.)
Meanwhile, I think most of my Twitter feed was completely blown away by this video of adorable Gaten Matarazzo, a.k.a. Dustin Henderson (He of the Chocolate Pudding) giving a powerful performance of “Bring Him Home” from the musical Les Miserables:
The Hollywood Reporter has rounded up several more of these musical numbers from cast members, including Winona Ryder and Joe Keery (a.k.a. Steve Harrington a.k.a. 1980s Jean-Ralphio), and you can check them out here.
So… does this mean musical episode in season two?
