While Jason Momoa took to his Instagram to share the trailer of his new movie, Sweet Girl star Isabela Merced also took to social media to celebrate the release of the first look at the movie saying. “Can’t wait for you all to see SWEET GIRL along with all these amazing movies coming this summer to @NetflixFilm . Jason Momoa and I had an insane amount of fun making this during the pre-covid times,” she wrote on Twitter.

What’s more in store for Momoa’s fans 

Sweet Girl is just one of Jason Momoa’s upcoming Netflix projects, with the actor also due to star in director Francis Lawrence’s Slumberland. Based on the comic book series, Little Nemo in Slumberland by Winsor McCay, it follows a the story of a young girl, Nema, who discovers a secret map to the dreamworld of the titular Slumberland.

Nema enjoys living in a lighthouse with her father, Peter, who has taught her how to sail. However, following Peter’s death while at sea, Nema is sent to live with her estranged uncle Philip, who is nothing like her father.

Nema soon discovers a world called “Slumberland” in her dreams where she encounters an eccentric outlaw, Flip, played by Momoa, who happens to be a half-man/half-monster creature and claims to have been an outlaw with Peter years ago, stealing things from other peoples’ dreams. Nema endeavours to explore Slumberland and find a way that she can wish for her father back. Slumberland is expected to hit the streamer sometime in 2022.
