The director reveals the biggest challenge in filming the fifth season of Stranger Things

Stranger things debuted in 2016 and the fifth and final season of the series is expected to arrive Netflix in 2024 or 2025.

With this, the audience saw the child cast Stranger things grow up and become an adult, but that’s also one of the problems of the show.

Due to gaps between releases and between seasons, as well as the writers’ strike, the actors are less and less like they should have been when the series was created.

Second Screen triggeringdirector Shawn Levy he commented jokingly that he is unable to slow down the rapid aging of the series’ actors and hopes there is a way to rejuvenate them.

“The writing was not complete when the strike began. We were supposed to start filming in June and have been on hold ever since. This is killing us, because these children will not slow down the aging process. I beg them to do it, but apparently the AI ​​can’t do it. Indeed, AI could do this, but not in real life. Only on the screen.”

How old is the cast of Stranger Things?

The story of Stranger things began in the 1980s and the fourth season ended in 1986.

From the fourth to the fifth season there will be no time jump, so it will be difficult to explain how the young cast has aged so much from one season to the next.

To give you an idea of ​​the difference between the ages of the characters and the actors, in the fourth season all the main characters, Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas and Will, are 15 years old.

In turn, the respective actors who play them are about five years older. Millie Bobby Brown is 19 years old, Finn Wolfhard is 20 years old, Gaten Matarazzo is 21 years old, Caleb McLaughlin is 22 years old, and Noah Schnapp is 19 years old.

While the older characters such as Steve, Nancy, Jonatahn and Robin are around 19 years old, the respective actors are around 30 years old.

Even if the negotiations for the writers’ and actors’ strike are not over, the recordings of the series remain at a standstill. And this will definitely have a negative impact on the appearance of the characters Stranger things.

Using CGI and makeup can be a way around this, but a time jump can create complications in the plot.
