Long thought to be “unfilmable,” Neil Gaiman’s beloved and iconic comic series from the early ‘90s has finally gotten a live-action adaptation, courtesy of Netflix. The Sandman tells the tale of Morpheus, a.k.a. Dream, one of a group of immortal beings known as the Endless who escapes a 100-year captivity and sets about on a mission to reclaim his kingdom and his power. Along the way, he’ll encounter literal nightmares, travel to hell, and have a heart-to-heart with the nicest member of his family, Death.

The Sandman was developed for Netflix by Gaiman, David S. Goyer, and Allan Heinberg. It stars Tom Sturbridge, Boyd Holbrook, Jenna Coleman, David Thewlis, Gwendoline Christie, and Patton Oswalt.
