The Sandman, a massive epic that is regarded as a graphic book canon, had a suitably difficult journey to the big screen. Thankfully, Netflix jumped in and struck a deal to turn The Sandman into a TV series in 2019.

See what Gaiman himself had to say about how challenging it was to secure approval for a fantastic The Sandman adaptation: I didn’t have trust that we would always arrive, but I did have faith that the most crucial thing was to stop making subpar copies.

Gaiman explained to Total Film. “Once a subpar version is produced, it’s difficult to recover from that. It may sound absurd, but Howard the Duck was my favourite comic when I was between the ages of 14 and 15… A New Breed of Hero was then published. The duck Howard the become a crude joke. I saw scripts that could have made that happen, but I never wanted that to happen to Sandman.

The Sandman Trailer

At least until its Comic-Con event, Netflix had kept the series’ existence a closely guarded secret. Before them, the only official clips from The Sandman were a trailer promoting the release date (which you can see above) and a brief teaser that didn’t reveal much. However, the platform took over Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con for a panel this Saturday and unveiled a much better preview of what’s to come, along with a brand-new video. The Corinthian is the opponent Morpheus will go up against in the new clip, which contrasts with the date announcement preview’s emphasis on Morpheus and his return.

We also learn a little more about the world-building for the series’ infamously dense lore, including how dreams and nightmares function in this reality and how humans will end up in danger amidst all the unconscious crossfire. The trailer also features Lucifer Morningstar by Gwendoline Christie, and guess what? She simply has amazing looks. No argument about that. Got that.

Gaiman has assured devoted Sandman readers that the first two graphic novels will be covered in the Netflix series’ first season. You can rest easy knowing that Gaiman personally participated in the making of The Sandman and gave the adaptation his blessing.

“I can say that Stephen Fry as Gilbert is waiting for you, Boyd Holbrook as the Corinthian, the serial-killers convention,” Gaiman added to Total Film. “We also get to punch above our weight on casting, because there are people who love Sandman and desperately want to be in it. Everybody is on Sandman because they love it. And it’s magic.”
