Spoiler alert: If you haven’t seen “Hawkins Lab Massacre” yet, don’t read “Unknown Things” Season 4’s Volume 1 Final Episode.
The second part of “Stranger Things” season 4 will debut in less than a month. But which member of the Hellfire Club could wait a long time for answers to all the questions posed by the shocking Volume 1 finale and the revelation that Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) created an upside down and a big bad vibe? Campbell Bower) within the supernatural realm.
The “unfamiliar things” creators Matt and Ross Duffer, professionally known as the Duffer Brothers, were reluctant to spread the word. Diversity Thursday to talk about the first seven episodes of Season 4 – but they gave us plenty to continue until Volume 2 debuted July 1.
How old should a person be until the scenes with Eleven appear in the rainbow room?
Matt Duffer: Oh my God. That is the big question.
Ross Duffer: We’ve done the math, it’s been a while.
MD: I’ve been doing math for two and a half years.
RD: I guess he was 20s late?
MD: 29, I believe
RD: We did all the math, it adds.
MD: We’re not good at math, but we have people in our room who are good at math and I’m pretty good at math. But if anyone on Reddit is saying otherwise, they may be right.
I think it’s like the early 30s?
MD: That may be true, how old Jamie is [Campbell Bower] Is
RD: In the early 20s / 30s, I don’t remember where we landed. But we did the math.
At what point in the timeline does Eleven create an upside down about the series starting?
RD: You’re killing us! Again, we did the math. I think he’s something
MD: She’s 9 and we meet her when she’s actually 11; Eleven is 11. So what you see in these flashbacks is actually two years ahead of the flashbacks you see in Season 1. Because I remember when we were doing Young Eleven visual effects, we sent them Season 1 content. , But we also sent goods from them [when Millie Bobby Brown was on] “Once upon a time in Wonderland.” When we do the math, that’s the age he really should be in those flashbacks. So we sent a lot of “once upon a time” videos to our visual effects team.
RD: I’m very familiar with Millie’s performance in “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland”.
I’m trying to figure out if this is something I don’t understand or don’t understand – but why did Will get frozen down on the day DemoGorgan took him and why didn’t he start backing up?
MD: That’s a very good question. This is actually one of the few questions we raised this season that will not be answered in Volume 2. But it is setting the stage for some big revelations in our final season. But all the way back, we’ve already said it, but in the middle of Netflix, Season 1, they went, “Can you explain to us what’s upside down and where these monsters are coming from, all these stuff?” We spent about a week writing all the myths with our writers and in fact there we defined what is upside down and where these monsters came from and what it means. And so this season, we’re giving the audience a lot of information, but there are still secrets about the upside down, and that’s great. But we really wanted to point it out this season because it’s going to play such a big role …
RD: You can learn more in Volume 2.
MD: I’m sure someone on Reddit will find out based on what they saw in Volume 2.
RD: It’s not clearly stated, the answer to your question, but we know the answer.
So, I didn’t miss anything?
MD: No, you don’t know. This is a great question.
Is there any reason why Eleven’s speech pattern is inconsistent and different from other children’s in Brenner’s program?
MD: Oh, are you talking about her bidding pattern in season 1?
Yes Why, in relation to the other children in the program, he seems to have difficulty speaking, and if there is any reason why Eleven does not have some kind of socialization or why we speak like others. The kids
MD: All right, she Is Equally socialized with other kids and then she goes in – and she doesn’t remember any of it – she goes in, you learn a little more about this in Volume 2, I think I’m revealing a little bit, but she goes into a coma, reawakening Yes, there is no recollection of these events and then she grows up in complete loneliness by Brenner, who does not dare to bring another number, for fear of it happening again. So he chooses to focus only on her. She lives alone, in a lonely room. This is the eleventh we meet in season 1. Two years apart and really limited memories of what happened to him. And so this is one of the reasons for the speech.
It makes a lot of sense and I understand now! So fans have noticed that in season 2 of season 4, Rolling Camera has a date of March 22, which is considered Will’s birthday. Did everyone in the universe forget Will’s birthday or was it unknown?
RD: How would you like to respond to this? (Laughter)
MD: (Mother-in-law) The honest response is, obviously, like the show’s characters, we forgot Will’s birthday. So the debate now is whether we can adjust Will’s birthday or let him really be sad.
RD: Oh my God, Jenny, I don’t want to write this to you because you’re going to get us in trouble for forgetting her birthday. (Laughter). I wrote that date 6 years ago!
MD Do you know how George RR Martin has someone – I mean, his story is huge – and Stephen King is someone who keeps track of this stuff? We need We don’t have that So Ross and I, and I don’t remember well, but we love Will, and I don’t want people to think we don’t love Will because we forgot – we do! But now we’ve mentioned Dustin’s birthday this season (Laughs), So we are very careful not to forget people, in case of timeline …
RD: Here’s my idea. I think we know what we’re going to do and George Lucas did it.
MD: We’re thinking that her new birthday, Jenny, is going to be on May 22, because “May” might fit in Winon’s mouth. [in the Season 2 scene where Joyce says the date of Will’s birthday]. Then that would be the situation we George Lucas-ing.
RD: Of course it means her mother forgot her birthday! This is very mean. This was clearly a mistake, and we apologize. We apologize to the fans.
MD: And especially to Will! This is an injustice.
Millie says you have to kill more characters. So can we expect more deaths in the latter half of the season or will you relieve us at this point or what?
RD: I don’t really want to say, but I would definitely be concerned about the characters going to Volume 2. I hope that’s kind of the meaning, because it’s dark weather and the kids are no longer kids. So everyone is in danger. And there’s a kind of ominous feeling that things can’t go well. Now, whether they do or not, you have to see.
Since everyone is so divided this season – I know what characterizes what you do for the season, everyone goes to their little pod, and they rearrange and we have these fun outings – but what were you doing? Groups in California this season and why were they so far away? Is there a major reason why they need to stay away from everyone else at this time?
MD: Well, what we like about it, for me, is the reason you are describing. I think if there is a formula for “unfamiliar things”, everyone’s idea of solving a piece of the puzzle and then joining forces together, it’s not as possible as before. That’s why we like the idea of throwing that challenge on our characters, so far away from Eleven Hawkins that he can’t sweep like he used to before Superman and save the day. His powers.
RD: And Hopper can’t come in and just blow up the machine.
MD: I think it’s one of the reasons for the season – a lot of people, I’m so happy, are saying it’s scary. And I think that’s one of the reasons Eleven isn’t there. Because it happens so many times that she is able to come in and save our characters and she is not there. And so they feel particularly vulnerable. And I hope you feel that way, and you should, that they were not the first to openly and weakly advance in this final battle with Vekna.
So I have another one that Millie and Noah Snape have also said that the audience has stopped explaining Will’s sexuality. But Finn Wolfhard said we’ll find out who “likes” in the latter half of the season. Are you going to address Will’s sexuality directly?
MD: The full strain of the story hasn’t passed yet because we’re actually in episode 7, which we call the end of our second act. So there’s a lot of resolution in the story; We’re trying to do the same with the character’s arcs. And I mean, that applies to Will’s pressure. So after playing those last two episodes it will be much easier for the actors and all of us to talk. But of course, her journey and stress is far from over.
