A new batch of concept art from the highly praised Stranger Things has been released, via Screencrush.
The new pieces of art feature Barb, the Upside Down, and the mysterious egg seen a few times throughout the first season.
Screencrush caught up with Aaron Sims Creative, the studio behind these pieces of concept art, and got their comments on the egg.
“The egg was a design for something you actually see a couple times in the show, whether you recognize it or not. There are a couple encounters where we see the Demogorgon hunkered over, eating something – when Nancy goes into the Upside-Down through the tree, and when Eleven finds the creature in her ‘vision,’ it’s hunkered over this egg, feeding off of it. It’s not clear whether or not this is the creature’s offspring – we don’t even know if it’s the same species. The only info we have is that the creature is feeding off this egg somehow.”
They then commented on the death of Barb, saying:
“Based on our original discussion with the Duffers on this design, we wanted to go really graphic with it to highlight the horrific aspects of Barb being eaten,” Sims shared, “and something then growing on top of her – thus, the ribs poking out of her stomach in the first shot.”
The show features Millie Bobby Brown as Eleven, Winona Ryder as Joyce, Caleb McLaughlin as Lucas, David Harbour as Officer Hopper, Natalia Dyer as Nancy, Noah Schnapp as Will, along with many other cast members. Read the full list here.
