If you enjoyed watching The Sandman, there is good news for you today. Netflix has just released a brand new episode to complete the first season of the show!
According to Buzzfeed, the 11th episode contains two stories: A Dream of A Thousand Cats (an animated episode) and Calliope (a live-action episode).
The first part tells a story of a Siamese cat dreaming of a new world.
A Dream of A Thousand Cats will star familiar people in special guest voice roles such as Sandra Oh, James McAvoy, Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Joe Lycett, Diane Morgan, and Neil Gaiman himself.
The second part, Calliope, tells the story of a muse who has a history with Dream.
The episode stars a number of new cast members such as Melissanthi Mahut as Calliope, Arthur Darvill as Richard Madoc, Kevin Harvey as Larry, Amita Suman as Nora, and Derek Jacobi as Erasmus Fry.
The bonus episode is inspired by two stories in the comic series written by Neil Gaiman: A Dream of a Thousand Cats (Sandman #18) and Calliope (Sandman #17), drawn by Kelley Jones and inked by Malcolm Jones.
According to director Hisko Hulsing, it was his mission to make sure the first part of the new episode looked as mesmerizing and hypnotic as he could.
We combined the paintings with classically drawn 2D animation, based on realistic 3D animation of telepathic cats in order to create a trippy world that feels both grounded and dreamy at the same time. Untold Studios in London created the breathtaking 3D animation of the cats. The wonderful 2D animation, oil paintings and stylizing were all done at Submarine Studios in Amsterdam.
Director Hisko Hulsing said in the press release.
