The Netflix-provided synopsis:
“Where do we go when we die? What’s waiting for us on the other side? Eighty-year-old Bonnie Black finds out when she passes away in a Manhattan hospital and opens her eyes in the world of Adystria, a magical land of monsters and dragons where good and evil are waging an eternal war. Reborn in the prime of her life, she finds all her old friends and loved ones waiting… except the husband who died before her. Armed with a sword and partnered with her late father, she sets off through this battle-torn landscape on a quest to find out where he is.”
Chris McKay (The Lego Batman Movie) will direct the adaptation.
