The Netflix fantasy adventure will premiere the same day Momoa’s Western The Last Manhunt opens in digital and theatrical release.
Let’s just go ahead and proclaim Nov. 18 as Jason Momoa Day, and give the C&I reader favorite his fair due.
That’s the date when The Last Manhunt, the eagerly awaited Western that credits Momoa as an executive producer, co-writer and co-star, is set for digital and theatrical release. And it’s also the date Netflix will premiere Slumberland, a lavish fantasy adventure inspired by Windsor McCay’s classic comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland, in which Momoa stars as Flip, a larger-than-life outlaw who guides a little girl through a fantastical search for her missing father.
According to Netflix: “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.”
Here is how Flip explains the rules of the game to Nemo.
And here is the Netflix trailer for Slumberland.
