Stranger Things creators The Duffer Brothers have found inspiration from many films from the 80’s, and perhaps none have been more influential than E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. In this episode of TSTP, join Addi, Darrell, and John as they talk about the connections between Stranger Things and E.T. The Extra Terrestrial. This is the first episode of a series where we’ll be watching movies that inspired Stranger Things. Some topics discussed are news, fun facts about E.T., how Stranger Things and E.T. are related, memories from watching E.T. for the first time, and favorite moments from the movie.
One of Addi’s favorite moments is when E.T. collects the different gadgets (like the alphabet toy, the blender) and creates the communication device. One of Darrell’s favorite moments is when E.T. meets Gertie, and one of John’s favorite moments is when E.T. gets drunk.
