Netflix has revealed the first teaser trailer for the fantasy-adventure movie “Slumberland.” Starring Jason Momoa in the leading role of an eccentric outlaw, Slumberland will release on November 18, 2022, on Netflix, worldwide.
Adapted from the comic book series "Little Nemo in Slumberland," the film follows a young girl Nemo (Marlow Barkley), who discovers a secret map to the dreamworld of Slumberland, and with the help of an eccentric outlaw Flip (Momoa), she traverses through dreams and flees nightmares, with the hope that she will see her late father again.
The teaser trailer shows a young girl Nemo, who has just lost her father. Everything is turned upside down in Slumberland, where all your greatest wishes can come true. From jet-setting through the clouds to sailing across the sea, Flip takes Nemo through her wildest fantasies, giving the phrase “sweet dreams” a whole new meaning.
Slumberland is directed by Francis Lawrence from a script by David Guion and Michael Handelman for Netflix. Based on the comic book series by Winsor McCay, it stars Jason Momoa, Weruche Opia, Kyle Chandler India de Beaufort, Chris O'Dowd, and Marlow Barkley.
Momoa plays Flip, a nine-foot-tall creature with shaggy fur and a full set of curved horns who is half-man, half-beast. Marlow Barkley plays Nema, a young girl searching for her father in a mythical world; her character is a gender-swapped version of the comic book's titular character, Nemo. The film also stars Ava Cheung as Ho-Sook, Luxton Handspiker as Matt, Jamillah Ross as Agent Orange, and Owais Sheikh as Frank.
Little Nemo in Slumberland was a full-page weekly comic strip that ran in the New York Herald from October 15, 1905, until July 23, 1911. The strip was renamed In the Land of Wonderful Dreams when McCay brought it to William Randolph Hearst's New York American, where it ran from September 3, 1911, until July 26, 1914. When McCay returned to the Herald in 1924, he revived the strip, and it ran under its original title from August 3, 1924, until January 9, 1927, when McCay returned to Hearst.
