When you’re in the Upside Down, time seems to fly by. Last week on the 15th of July 2021 marked the fifth anniversary of the town of Hawkins being revealed to viewers for the first time. Here’s a lovely little Stranger Things flashback to mark the occasion.
It’s hard to think it’s been a half-decade since we marched through Hawkins, Indiana, demanding #JusticeForBarb!
In honour of Stranger Things fifth anniversary, let’s go back to the beginning with a Stranger Things flashback video including some of the hit show’s most memorable moments. From Eleven’s iconic pink outfit and love of Eggos to the gang’s heartfelt camaraderie and the beauty of Steve’s floofy hair, seeing the cast’s familiar features makes us want to re-watch the show all over again.
It goes without saying that the kids have also grown quite a bit since we first met them. Just check out the cast photos below.
Each has gone on to become a celebrity in their own way. Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard are both in high demand in Hollywood. Brown appeared in her own Netflix film, Enola Holmes, as well as the blockbuster Godzilla vs. Kong. Wolfhard will next be seen in the highly anticipated sequel, Ghostbusters Afterlife, which will be released later this year.
