Principal photography for Slumberland began in February 2021, in Toronto after it was postponed last year due to the COVID pandemic.
Slumberland is an upcoming fantasy comedy-adventure and sci-fi movie directed by Francis Lawrence from a script by David Guion and Michael Handelman for Netflix. Based on the comic book series titled Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McCay, it stars Jason Momoa, Weruche Opia, India de Beaufort, Kyle Chandler, Chris O'Dowd, and Marlow Barkley.
The film follows a young girl (Marlow Barkley), who discovers a secret map to the dreamworld of Slumberland, and with the help of an eccentric outlaw (Momoa), she traverses through dreams and flees nightmares, with the hope that she will see her late father again.
Momoa stars as Flip, a nine-foot-tall creature that is half-man, half-beast, has shaggy fur full and full & long set of curved horns. Marlow Barkley stars as Nema, who is a young girl looking for her father in a mythic world, her character is a gender-swapped version of the title character Nemo from the comic book.

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.
Netflix announced the live-action film adaptation of the comic-book series Little Nemo in Slumberland in January 2021.
