The video showcases classic Stranger Things elements and Illaiyaraja can be seen battling the rift through his powerful tunes. The series is directed and written by the Duffer Brothers. Caitlin Schneiderhan, Paul Dichter, Kate Trefry and Curtis Gwinn have also co-written the show.
The video opens with kids running towards a tent-like structure that has various games. Once they get in one, the screen shows them 'Stranger Things'. They run into a dark forest, only to see Ilaiyaraaja orchestrating a company of musicians. He is seen in his trademark white dress in the video.
Fans were impressed with the video and showered the Netflix post with appreciation and love. One of them wrote, “This is crazy!” and another commented, “Goosebumps!” One of them also requested for Tamil versions of the previous seasons and wrote, “Release previous seasons in Tamil.”
Talking about the new season, actor Sadie Sink, who plays told Reuters, "(It) really kind of just dives deeper into some of the bigger questions that I think a lot of the fans have been asking. I think people are going to really be very satisfied with this season."
"There's always a lot of humour in the show.... The hallmark of the show is being able to bring humour to really serious and dark supernatural circumstances," actor Joe Keery, who plays Steve said.
