The Sandman is coming to Netflix much sooner than expected …and we now have a trailer. Plus, we have posters. And a release date. Basically, we have a hell of a lot of information thanks to Netflix Geeked Week …enough that we probably just need to take a breath here and try to process that it’s finally here. It’s coming. And it looks amazing.
“I’m the king of dreams,” the trailer begins, and it doesn’t let up from there. We don’t get a glimpse at all the characters, or a clear idea of a plot for those not familiar with the Neil Gaiman comics, but for those of us who are, there’s plenty to be excited. And, even if you don’t know the source material, the show brings the right vibe to hook everyone in.
For example, here are the character posters. Don’t they just look perfect?
And here’s the full trailer:
The Lord of Dreams has been summoned, and captured, by mortal men. Once free from his captivity, this eternal ruler of Dreams will realize that his troubles are only just beginning. The Sandman is a Netflix series based on the groundbreaking comic book series created for DC by Neil Gaiman. The series is Executive Produced by Neil Gaiman, Allan Heinberg, & David S. Goyer.
