Netflix has published a final ‘World of Dreams’ trailer for the Jason Momoa-led kid’s fantasy flick “Slumberland,” which will be available on the service on November 18th.
After her father Peter (Kyle Chandler) goes missing at sea, the young and impressionable Nemo (Marlow Barkley) has her beautiful Pacific Northwest upbringing upended when she is taken to live in the city with her well-meaning but terribly awkward uncle Phillip (Chris O’Dowd).
During the day, her new school and routine are difficult, but at night, a hidden map to the mythical world of Slumberland connects Nemo to Flip (Momoa), a rough-around-the-edges but endearing outlaw who rapidly becomes her sidekick and guide.
She and Flip soon find themselves on an unbelievable trip, crossing dreams and fleeing nightmares, where Nemo hopes to be reunited with her father once more.
The film also stars Weruche Opia, India de Beaufort, and Humberly Gonzalez, and was directed by “Hunger Games” franchise alum Francis Lawrence.
Francis Lawrence directs Slumberland, a 2022 American fantasy adventure film written by David Guion and Michael Handelman. Little Nemo in Slumberland, which was created by Winsor McCay, served as the inspiration for this. Jason Momoa and Marlow Barkley appear in the film, which also includes Chris O’Dowd, Kyle Chandler, and Weruche Opia in supporting parts.
Slumberland was released on Netflix on November 18, 2022. On March 3, 2020, it was reported that Jason Momoa would feature in a live-action version of the comic strip series Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McCay, directed by Francis Lawrence and distributed by Netflix, with production commencing in the summer of the same year.
However, due to the COVID-19 epidemic, production on the project was halted. Kyle Chandler joined the cast of the film, which previously included Chris O’Dowd and Marlow Barkley, on October 12, 2020.
Weruche Opia and India de Beaufort were cast the next year, on February 18. Filming in Toronto began on February 18, 2021, and ended on May 19, 2021. The musical score was written by Pinar Toprak.
The protagonist of the comics and prior film adaptations was originally a little boy named Nemo, but in the new reinvention, the role has been changed to that of a young girl named Nema.
The name “Nemo,” or “Nema,” has Greek origins and loosely translates to “Nobody.” It has been associated with nautical tales such as Captain Nemo from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Nemo the clownfish from Finding Nemo.
What does this have to do with Slumberland? The majority of literary “Nemos” have been adventurers on the lookout for something. They are frequently alone but make a few pals along the way. This narrative is strangely similar.
