It stars Tom Sturridge as the titular character, and he is joined by other actors such as Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death.

It is believed the story will begin with Dream being captured by the Order of Ancient Mysteries and then escaping as he sets out to restore order to his kingdom of the Dreaming. Dream is known as one of the seven Endless beings, and each controls a different segment of existence. The SandmanNetflix adaptation has been long-awaited by fans everywhere after many unsuccessful attempts were made by others to adapt Gaiman’s iconic work throughout the years.
