The Sandman and the Lost Sand of Dreams
- Release Date: October 6, 2015
- Genre: Animated fantasy/drama
- Running time: 83 minutes
- Rating: NR

While the Sandman looks like a Christmas elf, this is not a happy holiday tale. Instead it is a somber telling of Child Milo’s adventure to save the innocents’ sleeping dreams from becoming nightmares and his fight against evil Shivermann (AKA Habumar) and his forces for the magical sand.
Shout Kids Factory Release:
Every night, the sleeping children of the world are sent to a fantastic land of dreams thanks to the kind and magical Sandman. But the Sandman’s got some big trouble when Habumar, the master of nightmares, steals the Sandman’s powerful Sand of Dreams and takes control of Dreamland! Needing a brave hero to help them retrieve the sands, the Sandman and his faithful sidekick, Nepomuk the Sheep, recruit a six-year-old boy named Miko. Together, they set off on an incredible journey to save the power of dreaming for every girl and boy. Will Miko and his newfound friends stop Habumar?
My Opinion Only:
With themes like facing fears and believing in oneself, a plot build upon Old World legends and traditions, and quality stop-motion animation, The Sandman and the Lost Sand of Dreams film is a winner.
