Netflix has debuted the first clip from its upcoming fantasy adventure movie Slumberland – and it looks fantastically gorgeous.
Released during its Tudum 2022 global fan event, Netflix gave us our first proper look at the family movie starring Jason Momoa. And by all accounts, it looks like it’s going to be an entertaining and potentially heartbreaking Netflix movie.
Check out the extended clip below:
The 80-second clip doesn’t reveal much about the film’s plot, but it does show the solid chemistry that exists between Momoa’s Flip and Marlow Barkley’s Nema. The former revels in laying down Slumberland’s rules for his partner in crime, but, unbeknownst to Flip, there’s more to Nema than meets the eye. Looks like Flip has had his work cut out in the prank department.
Away from the pair’s natural relationship, Slumberland looks like it could be a beautiful movie to watch. Those chairs that unfold, the butterflies building a new dream world, and that cute pig toy look like they will leave viewers in awe and wonder in equal measure.
Based on Winsor McCay’s Little Nemo in Slumberland comic strip, Slumberland will see Nema team up with Flip to try and see her late father Nemo (Kyle Chandler) one last time. Weruche Opia, India de Beaufort and Chris O’Dowd are among the film’s supporting cast. Meanwhile, Francis Lawrence – who directed the Hunger Games films – is directing, with the film’s screenplay written by David Guion and Michael Handelman (both Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb).
Netflix is scheduled to release Slumberland in time for Thanksgiving (November 24), with the film coming to the streaming service on November 18.
