Netflix’s first ever online TUDUM fan event has been going strong this morning with panels, interviews, and sneak peeks of upcoming films, series, and more! Among the included content came the teaser for the highly anticipated adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman.
According to IMDb, the series synopsis reads as follows:
A wizard attempting to capture Death to bargain for eternal life traps her younger brother Dream instead. Fearful for his safety, the wizard kept him imprisoned in a glass bottle for decades. After his escape, Dream, also known as Morpheus, goes on a quest for his lost objects of power
Tom Sturridge (Velvet Buzzsaw) stars in the title role of the Sandman aka Morpheus, the King of Dreams opposite Charles Dance (Game of Thrones) as the wizard Roderick. The cast also includes Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones) as Lucifer, Kirby Howell-Baptiste (The Good Place) as Death, Sanjeev Bhaskar (Yesterday) and Asim Chaudhry (Black Mirror Bandersnatch) as Cain and Abel, and so many more!
There is no official release date for the series at this time.
The teaser looks gorgeous and Sturridge manages to somehow even take on the angular otherworldly appearance of Morpheus in the final moments as we see him in his cell, but don’t take my word for it. Check out the video for yourself!
