Netflix has the goods if you’re looking for family friendly fun this winter and all-new fantasy adventure film Slumberland recently made its debut on the streaming service. Scenes of lavish locations and colorful environments make up a large portion of the film so naturally viewers want to know more, like where Slumberland was filmed.
With a big name such as Jason Momoa attached to a production, it’s no surprise Slumberland has gained some attention. Here’s everything we know about the new fantasy flick.
Slumberland release date and plot preview
Slumberland made its debut on Netflix on November 18, 2022. It has a run time of one hour 57 minutes.
The streaming service often adapts literary works into major motion pictures and Slumberland is no different. Based on comic strip Little Nemo In Slumberland by Winsor McCay, the film loosely follows the same plot.
However, there are some major differences. Unlike the comic strip, the film features a young female protagonist rather than a young boy.
The plot follows Nemo as she escapes the challenges of daily life into a fantasy world known as Slumberland. Here the young girl meets a range of characters and faces numerous adventures.
Production began on February 18, 2021 and wrapped on May 19 the same year. Filming should have taken place much sooner as the project was announced in 2020 but Slumberland faced delays for several months due to the covid-19 pandemic.
Where was Slumberland filmed?
Interestingly, the shooting took place entirely in Canada, mainly in Toronto. A number of other productions have been filmed in the city, including horror sensation IT and, more recently, Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet Of Curiosities.
Fictionhorizon reports members of the production team were spotted filming at the Royal York Hotel in Front Street. The luxury hotel in downtown Toronto appears in several other productions including The Handmaid’s Tale and Miss Solane. The Royal York Hotel provides a remarkable backdrop.
The rest of the filming took place in Pinewood Toronto Studios.
