Danny Torrance is a middle-aged man drifting through America in order to shed his father's alcoholism, which passed down to him in order to forget the events of "The Shining". After landing into a small Massachusetts town and with the aid of a cat, he becomes "Doctor Sleep". After meeting a young girl with the most powerful shining Danny's ever seen, he must now face the demons of his past and the demons of the present in order to save her from a horrifying evil known as "The True Knot".

This film is based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. The book was a sequel to King's classic The Shining, which was adapted for the big screen by Stanley Kubrick in 1980. The Doctor Sleep movie was officially announced in January 2018, with WB setting Mike Flanagan to direct. Ewan McGregor was cast as Danny Torrence in June 2018, and the rest of the cast has come together since then.
