Season three of Stranger Things premieres on July 4. The official trailer for the new season was unveiled last month. The show premiered on Netflix in 2016. In 2017, the cast won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
Creation Entertainment was founded in 1971 by Gary Berman and Adam Malin. In 1991, Creation Entertainment became the very first studio licensee for the production of film “stills” when Paramount Pictures granted the company a landmark agreement for the Star Trek franchise that covered photos as well as a wide range of collectible souvenirs.
Working closely with the Paramount/Viacom Consumer Products team and with the inspiration of one of Creation’s earliest patrons, Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, Creation designed and produced a myriad of Star Trek t-shirts, hats, mugs, photos and assorted autographed collectibles.
In 2009, Creation began its involvement in the hugely successful Twilight Saga films and books. The company launched an official North American Twilight Convention Tour, playing to enthusiastic crowds anxious to meet stars including Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelli, Kellan Lutz, and many others.
Currently, Creation Entertainment offers a number of show-specific conventions for programs like Riverdale, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, General Hospital, and Star Trek.
