Warner Bros. Pictures has released a brand new featurette and two posters teasing adult Danny Torrance’s (Ewan McGregor) return to the Overlook Hotel following the traumatic chain of events that happened there in his childhood.
Director/writer/editor Mike Flanagan, author Stephen King and star Ewan McGregor all star in the featurette, titled ‘Danny’s Journey’, discussing Danny and his powers and what state he’s currently in, with King describing him as “a man at the end of his road”
Check out the featurette and poster below!
Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.
Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.
Doctor Sleep is directed by Mike Flanagan (“The Haunting of Hill House”) and stars Ewan McGregor (“Star Wars: Episodes I, II & III,” “T2 Trainspotting”) as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “The Greatest Showman”) as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra. The main ensemble cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.
Slated for release in North America on November 8, 2019, and globally beginning on October 30, 2019, Doctor Sleep will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
