Netflix revealed the highly-anticipated teaser for its next comic-book to TV series adaptation, The Sandman. It was unveiled during Netflix’s Tudum fan event. The series will be a dark fantasy one, helmed by Allan Heinberg.

Netflix is partnering up with DC Comics for the show, and the release is almost here. The story revolves around Dream (Tom Sturridge), also known as Morpheus. Dream is one among other Endless beings who had roamed the Earth since the dawn of time. He gets captured by mortal men, but Dream escapes, and now decides how to extend his will on to the world.

More about Dream

Neil Gaiman and Dream

Dream is an anthropomorphic personification of dreams – meaning, a natural process endowed with human form and personality. He gets captured by a cult and was imprisoned for seven decades. In the first teaser, we see him avenging himself.

The teaser is causing a lot of excitement, and ends with a ‘coming soon’ note at the end. We can expect it to arrive by late 2021 or early 2022.

The series stars Tom Sturridge as Dream, Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne, Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian, Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess, Asim Chaudhry as Abel, and Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain. Heinberg will serve as showrunner.

Neil Gaiman had mentioned that these characters have breathed and walked around and talked in his head. Having them step out of his head and into reality with the Netflix series makes him ‘incredibly happy.’ Gaiman expressed his gratitude towards the actors and the collaborators, such as Netflix, Warner Bros. and DC. Special thanks was also given to Heinberg and David S. Goyer for bringing the stories to life.
