This one hasn’t actually been released yet, but the buzz surrounding Adam Freeman and Marc Bernadin’s graphic novel is such that it warrants inclusion. The story follows the eponymous Jake, a 10-year-old boy plagued by an inability to stop himself daydreaming. However, he’s not just another ADD-suffering youngster. Jake is a "Dreaming," a person capable of exploring the plane between sleep and wakefulness in which the evil Nocturnus is stealing people’s souls…
Jake, like Harry, is an outsider burdened with the unwanted responsibility of saving the world from a terrifyingly powerful antagonist. Bummer.
We’re actually envisaging this one as an animation, so as to capture the look of the comic. Inevitably, it will likely be presented in 3D…
Imagine what Hayao Miyazaki’s dream-world would look like? We’d very much like to find out.
Radcliffe Cameo Potential:
Hmm, if we’re keeping things animated, there might not be room. Although if Jake were to dream of a young sorcerer…well we’ve got just the man to do the voice!
