Trailer For Audible’s Adaptation Of The Sandman Released

DC and Audible released the trailer for the audio adaptation of the Neil Gaiman classic, The Sandman.

Oh boy, we’re in for a treat based on the trailer. We get our first taste of James McAvoy as Dream in the adaptation. Also joining McAvoy are Neil Gaiman as the narrator, Kat Dennings as Death, Taron Egerton as John Constantine, Andy Serkis as Matthew the Raven, Michael Sheen as Lucifer, Bebe Neuwirth as the Siamese Cat, and Riz Ahmed as the Corinthia.

(Yes, we’re also disappointed in not having Matt Ryan and Tom Ellis voice their signature roles. But, alas, what can we do? We’re sure Sheen and Egerton will be great.)

Audible Originals editor in chief Dave Blum said of the adaptation, “Audible prides itself on creating and producing immersive and entertaining storytelling, and the exclusive audio production of Neil Gaiman’s legendary comic book series marks a thrilling addition to our original content offerings. We’re excited to join Neil and DC in bringing this extraordinary and beloved universe to Audible’s millions of listeners worldwide, for the very first time.”

“When The Sandman, also known as Lord Morpheus (James McAvoy)—the immortal king of dreams, stories and the imagination—is pulled from his realm and imprisoned on Earth by a nefarious cult, he languishes for decades before finally escaping. Once free, he must retrieve the three “tools” that will restore his power and help him to rebuild his dominion, which has deteriorated in his absence. As the multi-threaded story unspools, The Sandman descends into Hell to confront Lucifer (Michael Sheen), chases rogue nightmares who have escaped his realm, and crosses paths with an array of characters from DC comic books, ancient myths, and real-world history, including: Inmates of Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum, Doctor Destiny, the muse Calliope, the three Fates, William Shakespeare (Arthur Darvill), and many more.”
