The Shining features Danny, a young boy with psychic abilities. When his family moves into The Overlook Hotel for his father to care for it during the winter, Danny and his family soon discover that they may not be truly alone.The sequel, Doctor Sleep, is set to release on September 24.
In Doctor Sleep, King continues Danny's story, but Dan (as he now goes by) is now middle-aged and still trying to heal from those horrifying months at The Overlook Hotel. Dan meets a young girl that awakens and intensifies his abilities and sends him into another battle between good and evil.
