Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League are just a few of the DCEU films Snyder directed throughout his time with the franchise. Now, after leaving the DCEU behind, Snyder has partnered up with Netflix for a variety of projects, including Army of the Dead and the impending Rebel Moon.
The film has been compared to the Star Wars saga, and it is expected to be a huge financial success for Netflix over the Christmas season of 2023.
If you’re a fan of Rebel Moon like we are, you’ll naturally want to know the latest news. Everything you need to know is listed here.
What is Rebel Moon About?
Kora (Sofia Boutella) is a lone wolf fighter who has found community and connection on the peaceful agricultural world of Veldt in the space opera epic Rebel world. She has traveled far from her days of service to the Imperium, a ruthless royal interplanetary empire with a galactic conquest agenda.
But the bloody history of Kora is resurrected when the sadistic admiral Atticus Noble (Ed Skrein) arrives at Veldt aboard a Dreadnought-class battle cruiser and causes mayhem at the behest of the tyrant regent of the Imperium, Balisarius (Fra Fee).
Rebel Moon Release Date
Part one of Rebel Moon, titled A Child of Fire, will debut on Netflix on December 22, 2023, and Part two, titled The Scargiver, will be available on Netflix on April 19, 2024.
Filming on the two-part space epic began on April 19, 2022, and concluded on December 2, 2022.
Zack Snyder’s simultaneous effort into space combat, also filmed in parallel, will hit theaters for a limited run. The film’s original pitch to Star Wars producers during the prequel period was for an Akira Kurosawa-inspired adventure, but the idea evolved into the Netflix space opera we know today.
Zack came in with so much passion,” Ori Marmur, who co-heads Netflix’s originals studio film group with Kira Goldberg, told Variety. He’s been thinking about making this movie for a long time.
You already know that he’s put in a lot of time at other studios working on other people’s intellectual property. On Army of the Dead, we accomplished feats with his help that no one else had before. We developed a film and then a prequel and launched a live event.
He hoped to once again break new ground with Rebel Moon. When we realized how huge the universe he constructed was we believed it would be better served as two pieces vs one film. It’s a tale with room to develop further. His goal was to create “something like Star Wars,” and this is his attempt.
