The Fan Theory That Reminds The Stranger Things Cast Of Jumanji

"Stranger Things" has become a fan obsession since its release in 2016. Season 4 was so massive that The Duffer Brothers split it into two volumes, which premiered this past May and July.

The new season took place six months since the Battle of Starcourt. Struggling with the aftermath, our group of friends are separated for the first time and having to navigate the complexities of high school hasn't made things easier. In this most vulnerable time, a new and horrifying supernatural threat surfaces, presenting a gruesome mystery that, if solved, may finally put an end to the horrors of the Upside Down.

The cast includes Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Millie Bobby Brown, Finn Wolfhard, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, Brett Gelman, Cara Buono, and Matthew Modine. This season, Jamie Campbell Bower and Joseph Quinn joined the series.

Naturally, with such a popular show, there are plenty of detailed fan theories. So which one reminded the actors of "Jumanji?"

Could Stranger Things be more similar to Jumanji than we thought?

For an interview with Vanity Fair, Joe Keery, Natalia Dyer, Maya Hawke, and Joseph Quinn took turns reading, confirming and denying "Stranger Things" fan theories from Reddit. PaulDePaola proposed that "The whole show is just an elaborate D&D game. The kids are actually all grown up and fantasizing about their childhood nightmares." Keery, who read the theory, expressed that he loved the theory, calling it a great idea. 

Quinn decided to further discuss the theories by asking who would play the old versions of the kids. Keery and Hawke came up with Bill Hader for Finn and Natalie Portman for Millie. It then registered to the actors that the idea is easy to compare to the beloved movie, "Jumanji." Where would Nancy, Steve, Robin, and Eddie fit in? Keery thinks they'd just be the bards, while Quinn mentioned they'd probably just be people the kids encounter in their normal life. 

Imagine Steve Harrington as the postman!
