Where was Netflix’s ‘Slumberland’ movie filmed? These are the locations.

It turns out that Slumberland was filmed entirely in one location. The cast and crew did all of their filming in Ontario, which is located in the greater Toronto area. Interestingly enough, they were supposed to start filming the epic fantasy film during the summer of 2020.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 complications got in the way of their plans, and filming had to be postponed. By the time February 2021 arrived, they were able to finally start filming the movie. The Teal Mango explains that Canada has become a popular place for movies and TV shows to be filmed, with Toronto as the main hotspot. Slumberland isn’t the only movie that was recently filmed there either. Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities potentially shares some of the same backgrounds and backdrops.
