Netflix has just revealed a new trailer for its upcoming fantasy adventure film Slumberland starring Jason Momoa as Flip and Marlow Barkley as Nema in the lead. Slumberland is based on the 1905 comic strip, Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McCay. In the comic, the plot follows a young boy Nemo, but the Netflix adaptation will follow a young girl Nema.
Slumberland follows a young girl Nema who goes on an adventure with a half man/half monster creature to a mystical land in her dreams to wish for her father’s return.
Slumberland also stars Weruche Opia, India De Beaufort, and Humberly Gonzalez. The fantasy film is directed by Francis Lawrence with a script by David Guion and Michael Handelman.
Slumberland will be premiering on Netflix this December.

The official synopsis for Slumberland is as follows:
Slumberland takes audiences to a magical new place, a dreamworld where precocious Nemo (Marlow Barkley) and her eccentric companion Flip (Jason Momoa) embark on the adventure of a lifetime. After her father Peter (Kyle Chandler) is unexpectedly lost at sea, young Nemo’s idyllic Pacific Northwest existence is completely upended when she is sent to live in the city with her well-meaning but deeply awkward uncle Phillip (Chris O’Dowd). Her new school and new routine are challenging by day but at night, a secret map to the fantastical world of Slumberland connects Nemo to Flip, a rough-around-the-edges but lovable outlaw who quickly becomes her partner and guide. She and Flip soon find themselves on an incredible journey traversing dreams and fleeing nightmares, where Nemo begins to hope that she will be reunited with her father once again.
Slumberland is directed by Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire & Mockingjay), written by David Guion and Michael Handelman (Night at the Museum; Secret of the Tomb) and produced by Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, David Ready and Francis Lawrence. The film also stars Weruche Opia, India De Beaufort, and Humberly Gonzalez.
