Netflix’s Geeked Week gave fans their first look at the long gestating live-action adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman…including a release date!

The road to The Sandman hitting the screen has been a long one. From the big screen to the small screen, it’s been a journey for the adaptation. Fans won’t have to wait much longer, however, to finally see it. During the first day of their Geeked Week presentation, Netflix revealed the first trailer for The Sandman, along with an August 5th release date:

There is another world that waits for all of us when we close our eyes and sleep — a place called the Dreaming, where The Sandman, Master of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), gives shape to all of our deepest fears and fantasies. But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for a century, his absence sets off a series of events that will change both the dreaming and waking worlds forever. To restore order, Dream must journey across different worlds and timelines to mend the mistakes he’s made during his vast existence, revisiting old friends and foes, and meeting new entities — both cosmic and human — along the way.

The Dream King arrives on August 5, 2022 only on Netflix.
