Product Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The official behind-the-scenes companion guide to the first two seasons and beyond, featuring exclusive color photos and stunning concept art.

Note: This book has been designed to mimic a used book. The marks, scuffs, and tears on the cover and pages are an intentional design element.

Stranger things have happened. . . .

When the first season of Stranger Things debuted on Netflix in the summer of 2016, the show struck a nerve with millions of viewers worldwide and received broad critical acclaim. The series has gone on to win six Emmy Awards, but its success was driven more than anything by word of mouth, resonating across generations. Viewers feel personal connections to the characters. Now fans can immerse themselves in the world—or worlds—of Hawkins, Indiana, like never before. Inside you’ll find

• original commentary and a foreword from creators Matt and Ross Duffer
• exclusive interviews with the stars of the show, including Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, and David Harbour
• the show’s earliest drafts, pitches to Netflix, and casting calls
• insights into the Duffers’ creative process from the entire crew—from costume and set designers to composers and visual-effects specialists
• deep dives into the cultural artifacts and references that inspired the look and feel of the show
• a map of everyday Hawkins—with clues charting the network of the Upside Down
• the Morse code disk Eleven uses, so you can decipher secret messages embedded throughout the text
• a look into the future of the series—including a sneak preview of season three!

Adding whole new layers to enrich the viewing experience, this keepsake is essential reading for anyone and everyone who loves Stranger Things.

UP IN THE AIR
 
It’s one of the most eye-popping displays of Eleven’s amazing powers: as the young heroes are pursued by Brenner and his “bad men” through the streets of Hawkins, the gifted girl stares down a white van coming straight toward Mike and her and sends it soaring overhead. The vehicle crashes to the street below, blocking the pursuers’ path and allowing the kids to escape. Special effects coordinator Caius Man explains how he helped Eleven make the van fly:
 
“From our standpoint, it really wasn’t that supremely complicated. A flying car is a flying car. There were some unusual aspects to that because of the unnatural way they wanted it to fly, where it lifted sort of straight up and then tipped forward, so it took a little engineering. But it worked when we did it.
 
“We actually physically fired a van. We towed one down the street, and the van had in it two nitrogen cannons, two nitrogen sleeves that fired a high-density plastic slug out of the bottom of them to push it up into the air. One was just hitting a little harder than the other, which is what resulted in it going end over end the way it was supposed to.
 
“We built a small test in our shop. Basically, we built a plywood van with a couple of pneumatic cylinders, and we hopped it around the shop a bunch of times and were satisfied that it was going to function. [The Duffers]
wanted to see a full-size version of it to make sure that we could get it sufficiently high [so that they] could composite the children on the bicycles underneath it. What we did is, we shot it in the air, and then we had the kids ride down the street with the camera in the same position. Then we just cropped the two images together. We didn’t shoot the van over kids. That would be insane.
 
“We took it to a parking lot—a similar van, not exactly the same van—to a parking lot at Screen Gems, at our studio, and shot it. It launched, and everybody was excited. It landed exactly where I told them it was going to land, and pretty much everything was as it should be. On the day, we pointed three cameras at it, and we had a camera in the middle of the street that was aimed straight at it. It was the POV of the kids, and we fired it up over the camera. The first time we did it, we had a mechanical flaw. Instead of jumping up in the air, the front end jumped up and not the back, and it shark-attacked the camera in the middle of the street and destroyed it. So that didn’t work as well as we would’ve liked.

“It turned out to be a mechanical failure in a part that we replaced. The body shop fixed up the bumper in a couple of days, and we shot it again two weeks later. It was flawless and beautiful. As Shawn [Levy] described it, the gag’s so nice, we did it twice.”

This book is for nerds. No seriously that''s what the duffer brothers said in the foreword and boy are they right! You will get an overload of all geek artifacts such as Dungeons and Dragons, video games, Stephen King novels, horror movies, the works. What I liked about this book is that the brothers are unabashedly nerds and are sharing their love of geekdom with their audience.

It’s almost as if you are hanging out with them and you are talking about various subjects with such passion that has influenced their creativity. One of my favorite authors as of late is Larry Flores (Creepy Vibes, The Fire Diaries) who has a lot in common with the Duffer brothers as far as their love of geek culture. You can tell that they were influenced by the same things growing up in the 80s. However, Larry’s wheelhouse is dark humor. Getting back to the book, its designed with YOU in mind.

The main characters all have Dungeons and Dragons type player cards that decorate their bio complete with strengths and weaknesses which is a nice touch. Also I loved how the book addressed all of the Easter eggs in the show. For example, The Duffers favorite movie is Jaws so that heavily influenced the reason why you didn''t see the demagorgon until the last episode of season 1.

The book gives you the most in-depth details you could ever want if you are a fan of this show. No stone is left unturned. So if you love Stranger Things than this is a no-brainer but the best part is that it really does feel like the Duffer brothers are right there with you and well...that just pays for itself

It''s just so cool to see and hear all these insights from the directors, producers, etc. about what it really takes to make such a fantastic show and how much thought is put into every little detail. It makes you appreciate the show so much more and the dedication of those creating this series - that includes actors and everyone else - is evident on each page. So so cool and fun to read.

The first thing you notice about this book is that its creators have, like the TV show’s creators, done their best to evoke that 80s feel. It’s been made to appear like a secondhand book, complete with tastefully tatty cover and price sticker (from Melvald’s General Store, of course), nicely covered in a clear plastic protective sleeve. Inside, meanwhile, the photos have the slightly desaturated/high contrast look of a book printed thirty-plus years ago. And to cap things off, there’s a fold-out map of Hawkins and a detachable “Morse Code Pocket Signal Disk” — a duplicate of the one El uses in season 2 — at the back. So, if you’re a fan of the show and are wondering which to get, ebook or hardback, you should know that the hardback is really worth having. It’s a thing of tatty, nostalgic beauty. The text goes through the history of the show, from its development by the Duffer Brothers, the assembly of the cast, and the filming of season 1 (which gets the most attention), to the phenomenon of that season’s success, then season 2. It mostly goes through the plot of both seasons, using that as a way to look (never in huge depth) at various aspects of the making of the show, both technical and artistic. There are brief interview snippets with cast and crew, and the book’s peppered with little 80s-appropriate features on the main actors (D&D character sheets for Mike, Dustin, Lucas and Will, Hawkins Lab secret files on El, Joyce and Hopper, and so on). And there’s loads of full-colour photos throughout, many of which I hadn’t seen before — so, not just stills from the show as you’ll have seen it on-screen. (I guess they’re from alternative takes or an on-set photographer.) A great book for fans of the series, then. It ends with a 6-page Epilogue hinting at what’s coming in season 3. (Or Stranger Things 3, as it’ll no doubt be called, unless the Duffers follow their Jaws obsession and call it Stranger Things 3D! Now there’s an idea…) (There are a handful of morse code “secret messages” hidden in the book, which you can use the code wheel to decipher. Don’t expect them to make much sense, though, but perhaps the internet will have worked out exactly what they mean by the time you’re reading this.)

STRANGER THINGS FANS NEED THIS BOOK! Its fantastic, love how much is packed into it. Making the book look old with the old plastic cover with the FAIR sticker is a nice touch. Lots about the show and characters. Covers series 1 and 2. Also when you come to the part about The Upside Down, you have to turn the book upside down (Get it?) in order to read it. Not finished it just yet, taking my time with it. But I did get emotionally when I seen a certain character bio. Hurry up series 4 already!
