Stranger Things' kid actors try out '80s trivia (and don't do so well)

It's no secret that Stranger Things (opens in new tab) - which has just been green-lit for a second season (opens in new tab) - is heavily influenced by '80s movies (opens in new tab), and while the talented young actors are excellent when it comes to playing '80s kids their '80s trivia knowledge is another story.

In a Facebook Live video Stranger Things stars Gaten Matarazzo, Noah Schnapp, Caleb McLaughlin, Millie Bobby Brown, and Natalia Dyer answered '80s questions ranging from Top Gun to Michael Jackson. Check out how they fared below... 

The video also yields some other interesting, non-trivia insights, including the actors' favourite '80s movies (Goonies, E.T., Stand By Me, Pretty in Pink, and The Breakfast Club were all listed), what their favourite episodes of the season were, and which cast member is the funniest. Throughout, it's clear that the group's chemistry is just as great off the show as it is on it, which is pretty fun to watch. That will probably continue to be the case when season 2 of Stranger Things arrives next year.
