Trailer Thoughts is a regular feature in Artsy Draft where I react to a new release trailer from movies and TV series.
So, two days ago, Netflix released an official trailer for the new season of Stranger Things. I freaked out, yes. And I watched it around five times just to absorb every single detail. Because let me tell you, TONS of things happened during the spare of 2 minutes and 50 seconds. Here are a few scenes that made me shrieked in chronological order:
0:05 — Yurtle the Turtle is back!!!
0:06 — WDYM EVERYONE’S HAPPY YOU’RE HOME 😭
0:25 — My ginger queen looking effortless!
0:26 — Why everyone looks 17?!
