Stranger Things' Eddie Munson Becomes a Disney Character In Fan Art

In a new piece of Stranger Things fan art, Eddie Munson is imagined in the style of Disney's Tangled. First airing in 2016, Stranger Things tells the story of a group of youngsters in the 1980s who fight back against a variety of evil monsters from another dimension known as the Upside Down. The Duffer Brothers' hit horror/fantasy series recently returned for a fourth season, introducing a new villain in the form of Jamie Campbell Bower's Vecna, but also a handful of interesting supporting characters.

The new Stranger Things character who has since become a fan-favorite among viewers is Joseph Quinn's Eddie. The character is introduced as the leader of Hawkins High School's Hellfire Club, but he soon finds himself on the run after Vecna kills his friend, Chrissy (Grace Van Dien). Eddie and Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo) quickly form a strong bond and, in the season's final episodes, the two work together to distract Vecna as part of a plan to defeat him. The Stranger Things season 4 finale sees Eddie grab his guitar and perform Metallica's "Master of Puppets," an epic sequence that has since become the subject of much fan love online.

The love for Eddie continues in an impressive new piece of fan art from Samuel Chevé on Instagram, morphing the character with Flynn from Disney's Tangled. The fan art sees Eddie adopting Flynn's smirk and crossed-arm pose, but gives the character his signature long hair, denim vest, and electric guitar. Chevé dubs the art "Stranger Flynn," with one variation even featuring a "Guitar Hero" subtitle. Check out the fan art below:

Although Quinn's Eddie was only introduced in the first episode of Stranger Things season 4, it's clear that he has really struck a chord with many viewers. In addition to a standout performance from Quinn, Eddie seems to be a genuinely nice guy and his bond with Dustin and the other characters quickly establishes him as part of the core group. Although it's unlikely the beloved character will get his own animated spinoff considering the way season 4 ends, Chevé's fan art suggests that the format could actually be a surprisingly good fit for Eddie, with his rockstar look translating well to the medium.

With its colorful and vibrant 1980s setting, strong characters, and the otherworldly terror that comes with the Upside Down, Stranger Things is ripe for impressive fan art and creations. Eddie and Max (Sadie Sink), in particular, both seem to capture the hearts of many viewers in season 4, which is interesting considering both characters were introduced later in the show's lifespan. Stranger Things and Tangled might not have much in common on the surface, but the unorthodox combination does work surprisingly well, somehow making Eddie even more awesome in animated form.
