“Doctor Sleep”: The World Shines Once More in “The Shining” Sequel’s Official Trailer

Forty years later… yet Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) still finds himself haunted by the horrors of his past. But just when Danny believes he’s carved out a quiet life from himself, a young girl and a new evil will force him to face a new kind of evil. Can Danny break free of his past – or will the evil that’s surrounded him his entire life be too much for him to bear?

Directed by Mike Flanagan from Warner Bros. Pictures and Intrepid Pictures/Vertigo Entertainment, here’s the official trailer for Doctor Sleep, set to release in North America on November 8, 2019, and globally starting October 30, 2019.

“Doctor Sleep” continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.

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.
