A story of lost father and desperate daughter
The trailer opens with a father figure, Chris O’Dowd, dropping off a little girl, Nemo, at school, excitedly asking her, “Are you excited for your first day of school?” to which the girl replies, “My dad says schools are basically a prison,” implying that he’s not her father, but that he does care about her to some degree. Despite some levity in the way Nemo reinforces her statement that school is like a prison, she reveals her insecurity and her unusual outlook on life.
When a friend asks her where she went to school, she says that she had never been to school before and that she lived in a lighthouse with her father. Nemo also reveals that his father is gone, and then we see O’Dowd showing a video of his father (the role played by Kyle Chandler), remembering how he used to tell stories about the wild adventures they were having. In the next scene, we see O’Dowd putting Nemo to bed as she falls asleep, snuggling into her bed.
Welcome to Slumberland – make your wish come true
After the scene where Nemo falls asleep, her stuffed pig wakes her up and comes to life. Soon after, the bed transforms into a spider-like creature that carries the girl into the sea and surfs alongside the adorable dolphins. However, the girl finds it amusing rather than frightening, as if her dream world had come to life.
The scene then cuts to Jason Momoa’s Flip excitedly introducing the world of Slumberland to Nemo: “Welcome to my world, kid. Slumberland: the world of dreams”. Nemo finds the world extremely pleasant, with beautiful butterflies flying around, making it even more fascinating to watch. Flip then reveals how he was Nemo’s father’s partner a long time ago, hinting at his arrival in Slumberland. In Faced with such an unexpected response from the Flip, he searches through the flashbacks in which O’Dowd tells him about his father’s adventures.
Wondering about the relationship between the dream world, her father, and Flip, she finds unforeseen hope when he brings up the rumor about the adventure they’re about to embark on: “We’re going on a little scavenger hunt. This treasure allows you to wish for whatever you want.” As a girl who misses her father every day, she couldn’t be more obvious what she would want if she ever got her hands on the treasure.
Get prepared! The adventure is just beginning
As the trailer cuts to the next scene, we see Nemo desperately hoping to find his father and saying, “I might see my father again.” However, Flip warns him, “If we walk through this door, everything changes.” The girl, befitting her enthusiasm to explore the new world, shows her spirit and they enter Slumberland. Later, we see them being chased by a car and Flip introduces her to three new rules: stay focused, keep a low profile, and the girl mentions the third rule as a rotten dream, implying that things aren’t going as planned.
The trailer then shows a series of adventures where the girl and Flip, along with a couple of strangers, drive a truck like someone is chasing them relentlessly. The adventures continue for a few scenes before a despairing Nemo discovers that the dream doesn’t last long, waking up unexpectedly in his bed, saying, “I don’t want to wake up; I want to see my dad again.” “However, later scenes show her returning to the dream world with unexpected confidence, as O’Dowd tells her that she can dream whatever she wants.
After adjusting to the new world, they continue to explore, traversing their dreams and encountering new nightmares as they move toward their goal. The trailer raises a lot of questions, including the relationship between Flip and Nemo’s father and how O’Dowd finds out about Slumberland. Also, the people we see in the dream may exist in the real world and be aware of everything that has been going on. However, the biggest mystery would remain the existence of the world of Slumberland and if it really exists. He’ll find the answers to all of his questions when the movie opens on November 18, 2022, but in the meantime, keep an eye on the trailer for more clues.
