The Dream King or we should call Sandman Netflix's new series, all set to amaze you with its amazing plotline. Neil Gaiman fans' fantasies are coming true very soon, thanks to Netflix. Or, to put it another way, their Dream has come true.
After years of unsuccessful attempts to reproduce the Morpheus narrative on the big screen, the streaming service is developing a TV series based on the author's signature DC comic book The Sandman.
To correct the chaos that his absence has sparked, the Dream King must travel across different worlds and timelines.
Everything we learned about The Sandman is now available.
Recap of the Comic Series
Before we dive into the details, let's remember everything we remember about The Sandman comic series books. The Sandman #1 was published in 1989, and the main plot remained constant for 75 volumes until 1996.
(Other supplements followed, including an essential precursor, Finale.) The show's original logline describes Neil Gaiman's iconic, bizarre comic book series as well as any other.
What is the significance of The Sandman?
In 1916, a group of occultists tries to capture and confine Death's soul. Due to an error in their enchantment, they instead capture Death's brother Dreamcalled Morpheus, or The Sandman.
Decades pass where all dreams are shattered and humanity endures in frantic night terror, till one day Dream escapes his mystical prison and travels in pursuit of the occultists' artifacts.
In his quest for an identity that has been lost to him for years, he encounters old biblical figures, the children of Adam and Eve, Cain and Abel, as well as the rest of his spirit family (Desire, Destiny, Despair, Death).
The entire trailer for The Sandman, including all of its fantasies, dreams, and hauntings, was released during the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con, two weeks before the series' release.
Before that, Netflix released a brief schedule teaser, which gives us a sneak peek at the dimly-lit, dark drama that will follow. Morpheus, the older god of dreams, has indeed been absent for a long time, and he has now returned to a world that he had left.
A first-look teaser allows us to see a tiny excerpt of the plot in which a group of magicians perform a ceremony to capture Death itself but instead summon her brother.
