During its Geeked Week, Netflix gave news of the series adapted from the graphic novels of Neil Gaiman: The Sandman.
“Shall we find out what happens when dreams come to life?” During the second Geeked Week, Netflix has lifted the veil on some details of its upcoming event series. The Sandman, adapted from the eponymous graphic novels of Neil Gaiman, is already causing a stir on the Internet. In question, the choices of casting which did not delight the fans of the first hour. It must be said that this is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated productions of the moment. Nevertheless, the novelist’s involvement in the creative process should reassure them.
In a video, broadcast live Tuesday evening and shared on YouTube by the platform, Neil Gaiman in person gives us a first glimpse of what awaits us. With sets that are already shaping up to be sumptuous, the screenwriter and executive producer intends to bring his imagination to life. On this occasion, we also find two members of the cast who undoubtedly embody the two most important protagonists of the series. Morphée or Dream in the language of Molière will be played by Tom Sturridge (Good Morning England) while Gwendoline Christie will play Lucifer. The actress, who distinguished herself in the role of Lady Brienne of Tarth in Game of Thrones will find another star of the HBO series since Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister) incarnera Roderick Burgess. Kirby Howell-Baptiste (Cruella) will play Death.
For the moment, Netflix does not give the release date of this new series. We can expect it to be released no earlier than the end of 2021. By then, we should be entitled to several more images and probably a trailer in the coming months. We will therefore keep our eyes open.
