Netflix just debuted a new trailer for The Sandman at San Diego Comic-Con, giving us a brand-new look at the upcoming adaptation. The new trailer for The Sandman, which dropped on Saturday (July 23), reveals some exciting new footage and offers a great tease of what to expect from the series. The trailer focuses heavily on Tom Sturridge’s Morpheus/Dream/Sandman, as well as Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer and Doctor Who actress Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine.
Watch the trailer below:
There is another world that waits for all of us when we close our eyes and sleep — a place called the Dreaming, where The Sandman, Master of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), gives shape to all of our deepest fears and fantasies. But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for a century, his absence sets off a series of events that will change both the dreaming and waking worlds forever. To restore order, Dream must journey across different worlds and timelines to mend the mistakes he’s made during his vast existence, revisiting old friends and foes, and meeting new entities — both cosmic and human — along the way.
Based on the beloved award-winning DC comic series written by Neil Gaiman, THE SANDMAN is a rich, character-driven blend of myth and dark fantasy woven together over the course of ten epic chapters following Dream’s many adventures. Developed and executive produced by Gaiman, showrunner Allan Heinberg, and David S. Goyer.
