THE SANDMAN Featurette Gives Us A First Look At Some Behind-The-Scenes Footage

A full teaser was probably wishful thinking, but Netflix has released a behind-the-scenes featurette for its adaptation of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman, and it's a must-watch for fans of the comic series.

News

We were promised a first look at The Sandman as part of Netflix's "Geeked Week," and the streamer has now released a brief behind-the-scenes featurette which opens the door to Neil Gaiman's incredibly detailed world.

Though we don't get to see any of the main cast members in costume, the video does feature plenty of concept art and props, including a first look at the designs for Morpheus' helm, pouch and ruby, Matthew the Raven, and more. If you look closely, you'll also spot a first glimpse of the character design for the Dream King himself on an artboard.

Check out the featurette below, which also includes interview snippets with stars Tom Sturridge (Dream) and Gwendoline Christie (Lucifer).

The 11-episode first season of The Sandman is expected to adapt the first arc of the Vertigo comics series, "Preludes and Nocturnes," which finds Dream captured by a black magician and held prisoner for the better part of a century. When he finally escapes, he sets about recovering three very important items, encountering Lucifer, John Constantine, Doctor Destiny, Martian Manhunter and more on his travels.

Gaiman is developing the show along with David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. No premiere date has been set.
