stranger things season 2

Stranger Things, the original Netflix TV series has been a massive hit thanks to its gripping story, 80's retro setting and tips of the hat to Spielberg, John Landis, Steven King and John Carpenter to name a few.

But eight episode is just not enough for something as high quality as this.  So today it was officially announced that Netflix will be bringing us season 2 of Stranger Things and it's called...um...well Stranger Things 2.

Show creators Ross and Matt Duffer have already teased us with some ideas and hinted that the second season will have a lot of Indiana Jones references.

They told IGN that a second series would pick up a year after the first left off, to compensate for the growing child actors. A time jump would also give the writers an opportunity to create new mysteries.

The brothers teased that a sequel would explore the after-effects of Upside Down on Will, saying: “Season two would be very differently, structurally.

“It would be that everything seems great on the surface and then there are hints that things aren’t okay or that there are lingering effects from what happened last year.

“The initial instinct is to push that back and sweep that crap back under the rug but eventually it becomes impossible to ignore and so they have to confront the repercussions of everything they’ve experienced.”

Stranger Things 2 will hit Netflix with nine episodes next year.

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” toys unveiled in series of original stop-motion animated shorts debuting online today

Launch heralds global UGC contest celebrating fan content, creativity and storytelling

A team of Star Wars superfans today revealed the new toy line for the highly anticipated “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” movie via a series of fan-made animated shorts launching on the Star Wars YouTube channel. As part of a competition in collaboration with creative network Tongal,a team was assembled to write, direct and produce original, fan-made stop-motion shorts starring key toys from the new line to kick off a global UGC contest that asks fans to share their own “Rogue Stories.”

star war go rogue“These fan-created shorts are a tribute to the incredible content that the Star Wars community posts online every day,” said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. “The Go Rogue campaign was designed with Star Wars fans in mind – we want them to be front and center in the run up to ‘Rogue One’ by imagining and creating their own Rogue Stories."

When Star Wars news breaks, many fans worldwide react by sharing their own videos online. According to new research, fans posted over 838,000 pieces of Star Wars-related content on YouTube in the past year alone, which is more than 2,296 per day and nearly 96 per hour. Star Wars fan-generated content is also incredibly popular, accruing more than 16.3 billion views in the last year – equivalent to everyone in the world viewing at least two fan-created videos.

The global contest, which kicks off September 30, invites fans to share their own short stories or skits set in a galaxy far, far away… Winning entries from around the globe will be chosen by a panel including “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” director Gareth Edwards. Beginning September 30, teen and adult fans can enter the Go Rogue contest on StarWars.com/GoRogue. In addition to the global contest on starwars.com, in the U.S. and parts of Canada, kids 8-12 can participate on Disney.com/MyRogueStory. Winners will be invited to Lucasfilm in San Francisco to attend a screening of “Rogue One,” and see their short story on the big screen.

The fan-created shorts showcasing the new line of “Rogue One” toys for the first time launches on the Star Wars YouTube channel today, with new installments rolling out through September. The team was led by James DeJulio at Tongal, and the series was written by Kevin Ulrich and brought to life by stop-motion animators and directors Dan MacKenzie and Tucker Barrie. The stories follow the adventures of “Rogue One” toys from Hasbro, LEGO, FUNKO, JAKKS Pacific, Mattel and Disney Store as they try to track down the building instructions to the LEGO Star Wars Death Star set which have been misplaced by the Empire. 

“I’ve been a Star Wars fan my whole life so this is a dream project,” says James DeJulio, co-founder of Tongal. “It’s been amazing to see what an inspiration Star Wars has been to so many members of our creative community, whether that’s coming up with their own Star Wars storylines, or playing out scenes with Star Wars toys at home with their kids. I’m excited to share this first ‘Rogue Story’ with the world and hope it inspires other fans to share theirs.”

Fans can pre-order a handful of select items seen in the “Rogue Stories” beginning September 2 at mass retailers, Disney Store locations and disneystore.com. The full range of new “Rogue One” and Star Wars products will be available globally starting on
September 30. Join the global #GoRogue conversation on social.

Tongal’s creative network includes 120,000 writers, directors and animators across 150 countries. For more information, go to www.tongal.com.

We all love Stranger Things which is available on Netflix right now.  It has a wonderful 80's retro feel with a heavy dose of Steven Spielberg.  If you haven't watched the eight episodes yet then you are missing out on one of the best TV shows in years.  Check out our review here.  Developer Infamous Quests have put together a playable point n' click game in the same vain as the classic Lucasarts games such as Monkey Island and Maniac Mansion.  You can play it here.

In the game you play Chief Hooper who searches through the woods following the disappearance of Will Byers.  It lasts about 15 minutes but it's free so get downloading.

In the mean time another clever fan of Stranger Things has put this video together showing what an 80's game would look like on your C64 or Atari.  It's full of retro goodness and if you're of a certain age it will definitely make you smile.
