Although we have saw some previews from the upcoming Netflix adaptation of that of Neil Gaiman The sand man and I heard everything on the interesting casting of the show, the streaming service was careful not to reveal its take on the Endless, the family of anthropomorphic beings at the center of the story. That is, until today’s special Tudum event.

This live-action story (the tale has already been done in audio) is based on the Gaiman comic that ran under DC’s Vertigo imprint now missing in the late 80s and early 90s with resurgences here and there. Artists involved included Dave McKean, Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg, Jill Thompson, Shawn McManus, Marc Hempel, Bryan Talbot and Michael Zulli. After months of simply leaving fans wondering how the new show could compare to the source comic, Netflix finally shared a great look at the series during a presentation hosted by executive producer Neil Gaiman and cast members Tom Sturridge. and Kirby Howell-Baptiste, who portray siblings Dream and Death, respectively. Looked.

The cast of this one is quite impressive and includes Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, non-binary actor Mason Alexander Park as Desire, another brother of Dream, Donna Preston as the twin of Desire, Despair, Vivienne Acheampong as Lucien, Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess. We also have Boyd Holbrook as Corinthian, Sanjeev Bhaskar as Cain, Asim Chaudhry as Abel and Jenna Coleman like Johanna Constantine. Plus Joely Richardson and Niamh Walsh as older and younger versions of Ethel Cripps, and David Thewlis like Ethel’s son, John Dee. Kyo Ra will play Rose Walker, Stephen Fry will play Gilbert, Rose’s protector, and Razane Jammal will play Lyta Hall, Rose’s closest friend. There’s also Sandra James Young as Unity Kincaid, a wealthy heiress and benefactor of Rose, and none other than MODOK himself, Patton Oswalt as the voice of Dream’s emissary, Matthew the Raven.

Here are some new character posters also released via official social media, @Netflix_Sandman on Twitter and @thesandmanofficial on Instagram.
