At this time, there is no denying that Stranger Things is Netflix’s biggest success. Even though the show is about to enter its last season, the franchise will continue since spinoffs that enhance the world are planned. Now that we have our first details on one of their spinoff ideas, it appears that they are entering the animation industry.
Currently being developed on Netflix is a Stranger Things anime series. It is anticipated that this will be the first of many planned spinoffs for the franchise of the program, and it will also signify its entry into the animation genre.
The Stranger Things Tokyo spinoff will focus on two video game-loving twin boys who live in the suburbs of 1980s Tokyo and who become embroiled in a big adventure after coming into contact with the Upside Down. It is anticipated that the series would last about “6 hours.”
We may still need to treat the news with caution as neither Netflix nor the main trades have officially acknowledged it. However, it was reported by a reputable Netflix news source, so it is quite likely to be accurate.
It is not unexpected to learn that Netflix is going to create an anime adaptation of the well-known series given their aspirations to create other Stranger Things spinoffs to grow the franchise and their extensive body of original anime work. In some of their original properties, like Altered Carbon, they had already done that.
Since it appears like the series will examine the idea of the Upside Down from the perspective of various countries, this adds to the mythology that they are developing with the main program and makes the concept even more intriguing.
Before we learn anything important about the project, it may be some time as neither Netflix nor the Duffer Brothers have officially confirmed it. Even still, it’s intriguing to learn about some of their ideas for the Stranger Things series when the main series is over.
Netflix offers streaming of Stranger Things’ first four seasons.
