WATCH: Sandman featurette will drive fans of Neil Gaiman’s iconic series mad with excitement

September 20th, 2021 by Marc Comments

While we all continue to pace the floor in anticipation of Netflix’s Sandman series, the streamer has dropped a behind-the-scenes featurette that, while featuring no footage from the series, has enough locations and props to drive fans of Neil Gaiman’s timeless comic series mad with excitement.

The video, below, features Gaiman as well as stars Tom Sturridge who plays Dream and Lucifer herself, Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie.

Fans of Sandman who pay close attention – like any of you won’t – will spot Morpheus’ bag of sand, elaborate helm and the Dreamstone Ruby. We also see Matthew The Raven, Sandman’s helmet, the Magdalene Grimoire and… is that Abel’s baby Gargoyle?!

If none of this means anything to you, just imagine how much fun this series is going to be and if it does, imagine how exciting it’ll be to see this all come to life onscreen!

Gaiman previously assured fans the series is still set for a 2021 release despite that damned virus… we hope he’s right.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
