The Sandman, based on the Neil Gaiman comic book, is coming to Netflix.
The Sandman has landed on Netflix and is based on Neil Gaiman’s dark fantasy comic. The film boasts a stellar cast.
Dream, also known as Morpheus and by other names, is one of the seven Endless, a family of creatures claimed to be older than any other supernatural being.
In an interview with Empire Magazine, Neil Gaiman discussed the various tones and styles employed throughout the series, stating: “The first episode makes you realize, “Oh, I get it: it’s like Downton Abbey, but with magic.”
“In Episode 2, when you see Gregory the Gargoyle in The Dreaming, you will be left wondering, “What the heck is this?” Episode 5 is as dark and terrible as things will ever go, followed by Episode 6, which is likely the most upbeat of all the episodes.”
The Sandman Release Date
The series becomes available on Netflix on August 5.
What Happens In The Sandman?
This is The Sandman’s plot: “In 1916, an occult ritual captures Morpheus, the king of dreams and one of the seven Endless. After 105 years of captivity, he escapes and embarks on a mission to restore order to his realm of the Dreaming.”
Neil Gaiman, teasing the plot further, stated (via Comicbook.com): “It will be scary, but it will also be many other things because the fun of Sandman is that there are many different ingredients in the soup, and you can taste them all.”
