    I imagine any one who played a kid in the first one and came back got immediately put back in that role. It's hard enough to cast these kind of iconic face characters, so you may as well try to make it as easy as possible.

    Hopefully Max is in the house, although I could see them using a dummy of her for the junkyard scene along with Dustin.

    Also that last one screams Lupita Nyong’o

    I feel like the promotional picture only features the kids as the primary characters but we'll see Joyce, Hopper and the others as well in the house like we did last year with Hopper, Joyce, Steve at certain times and Nancy and others if so.

    Season 3 was the best so far. I was feeling around episode 4 or 5 it was dragging a little but the ending 2 episodes were amazing. I honest think they could have ended the series this season, but I know the money train keeps on moving. Hopefully they don't try to milk it. Also I know a lot of people complained about the marketing product placements and tie ins, but I think that is the call back to the 80's. I think movies and TV really started doing that and the nostalgia hits the right beats. I love the Scoops Ahoy tie in with Baskin Robins in Burbank, sadly it ended on Sunday.

    (Loaded question) Okay so we all know that Ghostbusters has been officially announced and we know, through rumor maps and such, that it will be going in SS 22, where ST things was last year and that ST is going in SS 25, where Poltergeist was last year. Just looking at the SS map, 25 looks a lot bigger than 22. Because ST now has that bigger space, and will reportedly feature scenes from both S2 and 3, will the house be significantly bigger than last year, or will they just use up space as necessary? Because, someone correct me if I am wrong, but I heard that A&D doesn't use up all the soundstage space for every house they produce, if they don't have to (i.e. Poltergeist)

    If ST was mega, they would’ve said so.

    I imagine they may stretch the limits a bit.

    That's correct. They build what they build/what they are resourced to build. Casting limitations on something like Stranger Things, and how it relates to a house's pacing, likely prevent something longer than typical (thus, why it's not considered a mega-house).

    Now, this house will likely have larger scenes than a typical house (Starcourt, especially, may end up being the size of a full façade), but the total number of scenes won't drastically increase.

    Most houses only take up about 9,600 sq feet.

    When the set of Starcourt was dismantled, they left the ice cream store set intact. One worker said he heard it was going to "an amusement park" . FWIW!

    If that's true, I sincerely hope they are bringing it to Orlando's house!

    If the set actually is coming to theme park, Orlando makes the most sense given the close proximity to Atlanta, which is where all of the Starcourt stuff was filmed.

    I'd really like to see that, I'm really hoping they put out a little teaser of the house like they had done last year, give us a little more hype and peak of what's to come.

    I have to think that record has to be the big "critter" from Midnight Snack 2: The House Swarming last year.

    At least by sheer mass. Some stilt walkers were probably taller, but I would think that would be larger.

    Well both the skull in Poltergeist and the creature in Slaughter are definitely up there, I'd sure like to see what they do with the Mindflayer creature during the Starcourt Mall scene. :)

    Just cause the thought just occurred to me: Given the heights of the actors last year, and that you have to be 18 to work the event, is most of the cast female? Or just some petite teens/young adult men?
