‘Stranger Things’ Drops Trailer for Season 3

Hold your breath and grab your nearest box of eggos. Netflix has dropped the trailer for Season 3 of Stranger Things (finally!) and this season looks even more exciting than the second. Featuring the return of all the actors from the previous season, including Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matazarro, Caleb MacLaughlin, Charlie Heaton, Sadie Sink, and Dacre Montgomery. A new addition to the cast is actress Maya Hawke, who made her screen debut in the BBC 2017 adaptation of Little Women. She will be playing a new character who works at the town’s mall, which looks to be a centerpiece for the season.

Highlights from the trailer include the characters dealing with something more horrible than any demogorgon: puberty! Yes, it seems this season will be about growing from kids into teenagers in this season and dealing with the pressures of growing into adulthood. The kids, from Eleven to Mike to Max, all looking to be handling these confusions with appropriate teenage angst and it looks to add even more drama to the circle of friends. Of course, not all threats are grounded in reality, and besides the themes of maturity, the monsters are coming back in full force as well. Glimpses of a terrifying new beast are seen near the end of the trailer, a grisly thing pulsating with tentacles and teeth. Not to mention, the whole thing is set to the chaos of July 4th, with images of fireworks and celebrations littered throughout the trailer.

We look forward to seeing the continued adventures of the Stranger Things crew this summer. The new season drops on July 4th and should prove for a binge-worthy time.

9 Quotes About Fireworks for a Sparky 4th of July!

Fireworks are by far and away the most exciting thing about July 4th! Enjoy your day and night, see the fireworks and be safe! 

 

“We shall go wild with fireworks…And they will plunge into the sky and shatter the darkness.
We don’t have any fireworks that big” 
― Natsuki Takaya

 


“When you meet someone
so different from yourself,
in a good way,
you don’t even have to kiss
to have fireworks go off.” 
― Lisa Schroeder

 


 

“Colored lights blink on and off, racing across the green boughs. Their reflections dance across exquisite glass globes and splinter into shards against tinsel thread and garlands of metallic filaments that disappear underneath the other ornaments and finery.

Shadows follow, joyful, laughing sprites.

The tree is rich with potential wonder.

All it needs is a glance from you to come alive.” 
― Vera Nazarian

 


 

“July 4th fireworks exhale over the Hudson sadly.
It is beautiful that they have to disappear.
It’s like the time you said I love you madly.
That was an hour ago. It’s been a fervent year.” 
― Frederick Seidel

 


 

“You’re much better than fireworks. They’re all over in a moment, and you’re going to stay for a fortnight. Besides, fireworks are noisy, and they make too much smoke.” 
― Kate Ross

 


 

“I want to feel them against my bare skin. 
I want their colourful touch to burn itself into my body
and set my blood on fire with chemicals and fury, 
to drag me from a place of retreat and smothered tears 
into destruction and gloriously bright fire falling.” 
― Miriam Joy

 


“The fireworks went on for nearly half an hour, great pulsing strobes, fiery dandelions and starbursts of light brightening both sky and water. It was hard to tell which was reality and which was reflection, as if there were two displays, above and below, going on simultaneously—one in space-time, mused Max, and the other in time-space.” 
― Sol Luckman

 


 

“At the water’s edge, barrels of pitch blazed like huge bonfires. Their reflection, crimson as the rising moon, crept to meet us in long, wide stripes. The burning barrels threw light on their own smoke and on the long human shadows that flitted about the fire; but further to the sides and behind them, where the velvet ringing rushed from, was the same impenetrable darkness. Suddenly slashing it open, the golden ribbon of a rocket soared skywards; it described an arc and, as if shattering against the sky, burst and came sifting down in sparks.” 
― Anton Chekhov


 

“I ignite the wick, and the firework takes flight. In that moment, I wish my existence were as simple as being set on fire and exploding in the sky.” 
― Adam Silvera
