Netflix has officially unveiled the teaser trailer for The Sandman. According to the initial teaser, the tale will be very similar to the original comics. The streaming series is based on Neil Gaiman’s graphic novels of the same name, which he began writing in 1993. Dream, sometimes known as Morpheus, is the king of dreams, and the Sandman follows him. Dream is one of the seven Endless, strong beings who represent concepts such as Death, Destiny, Despair, and Desire in this realm.
The teaser shows Morpheus (Tom Sturridge), or Dream, as he is trapped and imprisoned by a group of sorcerers. Dream is the king and personification of dreams and all that is not reality. The trailer follows Dream as he breaks free from captivity and returns to his world, only to discover that it has deteriorated during his captivity. The trailer also offers first looks at various cast members who portray characters from the original comics.
