In August, Netflix released the first teaser for the big-budget, family fantasy film "Slumberland", directed by Francis Lawrence (Constantine, I Am Legend, Hunger Games, Red Sparrow). After a while, also full trailer and poster were released. While the first teaser only gave a small glimpse into the unusual character of Flip, the trailer brings him to the fore as we get a better glimpse of his journey with the girl Nemo.

The screenwriters of the film are David Guion and Michael Handelman (Night at the Museum: The Secret Tomb), while the executive producers are Guion, Handelman and Ray Angelic. The main stars in this film are Jason Momoa (Aquaman) as eccentric outlaw Flip who is half-human, and half-monster, and Marlow Barkley (Single Parents) as Nemo, a little girl who travels to the secret world of dreams in search for her father. It is a film based somewhat on the 1905 comic strip "Little Nemo in Slumberland" which was written by Winsor McCay.

Slumberland takes the audience to a magical place, a dream world where the precocious Nemo and her eccentric sidekick Flip embark on the adventure of a lifetime. After her father Peter is unexpectedly lost at sea, the girl's idyllic existence is turned upside down when she is sent to live in the city with her well-meaning but boring uncle Phillip. Her new school and new daily routine are challenging, but at night, a secret map of the fantasy world of Slumberland connects Nemo with Flip, a gruff but lovable outlaw who quickly becomes her partner and guide. She and Flip soon find themselves on an incredible journey through dreams and nightmares.

The rest of the acting crew is made of Kyle Chandler (Friday Night Lights, Argo), Chris O’Dowd (State of the Union, Moone Boy), India de Beaufort (Veep, One Day at a Time), and Weruche Opia (Inside No. 9, I May Destroy You). "Slumberland" arrived on Netflix in November.
