Netflix has released the first official trailer for its upcoming The Sandman series, an adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s DC Comics book series that ran from 1989 to 1996. Described as a blend of myth and dark fantasy, The Sandman follows the Master of Dreams known as Dream, Morpheus and other names.
Dream, played by Tom Sturridge, is captured and held prisoner for a century and his imprisonment sends a spiraling effect across both the dreaming and waking worlds. As Dream is freed by mortals, he seeks to restore his former power and establish order. On his journey, Dream will need to track down sacred magical items within the world of Dreaming assisted by head librarian Lucienne. There they will be met with foes such as the escaped nightmare Corinthian (Boyd Holbrook) and the demon Lucifer (Gwendoline Christie).
The Netflix series is developed and executive produced by the original writer Neil Gaiman, showrunner Allan Heinberg, and David S. Goyer.
