Zack Snyder’s Epic Sci-Fi Adventure – ‘Rebel Moon’ Movie

Returning with a gigantic sci-fi epic that takes place in a galaxy far, far away is Zack Snyder. A group of farmers on a remote moon (known as the Veldt) are attacked by Mother Earth’s armies in the much awaited interplanetary film Rebel Moon – Part One: Child of Fire. See the video and read more about Rebel Moon down below.  

Sofia Boutella portrays Kora in the first episode of Rebel Moon, a former Imperial soldier who now makes a peaceful living by farming on the Veldt moon. But when the terrible Admiral Atticus Noble (Ed Skrein) visits the Veldt at the command of Balisarius, the despotic king of the Empire, he is forced to face his violent past. To save the nation of Veldt from unspeakable evils, Koran needs to assemble a group of soldiers.

The idea for Rebel Moon originated with director Zack Snyder (Justice League, Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman) during his time in film school in the 1980s. Snyder imagined a space-based Magnificent Seven or Seven Samurai. He proposed an early draft of Rebel Moon to Kathleen Kennedy of Lucasfilm as a Star Wars narrative when he was working on Man of Steel in 2012.

“I felt I had a chance because I thought Star Wars was in a vulnerable state,” the filmmaker stated to The Hollywood Reporter. Snyder believed his concept was doomed the moment Disney revealed it was acquiring Lucasfilm, even though he still wanted the movie to be R-rated. In the end, Rebel Moon ended up at Netflix with a two-part arrangement that had nothing to do with the Star Wars universe. R-rated extensions are now planned for both movies (the dates of the explicit versions’ releases are unknown).

Synder explained to Tudum that the mythology of Rebel Moon “is on steroids.”   

“There’s a lot of things that I can’t wait for people to experience and enjoy because we had a lot of fun doing it. But I think it’s really an opportunity to delve into a new mythology and walk around the edges of the universe a little bit  because we’ve done a lot  work to make them accessible,” he said. an interview “Because the  answer is there. It’s not random,  not just because. I think it’s fun, so I hope the fans will too.”


Actress Sofia Boutella plays Kora, a villager forced to leave the Veldt to fight against the Empire. He is joined by Charlie Hunnam, who steps into the role of Kaina, a mercenary pilot whose spacecraft, a Tawau-class freighter, assists Kora in her mission. Also included is Michiel Huisman as Gunnar, a Veldt farmer who thrives on his silent moon in the farthest corner of the galaxy.  

On the enemy side, Ed Skrein plays the main villain of the film: Admiral Atticus Noble. Noble is an  enforcer of the Empire who leads against the Veldts. Djimon Hounsou also plays General Titus, a gladiator once on the dark side.  

However, the persuasion of Kora and her team encouraged him to fight against the mother world that shaped him into who he is today.   Also in Rebel Moon, Staz Nair is the noble  servant Tarak; Doona Bae as the cyborg swordsman Nemesis; Ray Fisher as rebel warrior Darrian Bloodaxe and more.

Will there be another Rebel Moon movie?  

If you want more of Rebel Moon, you’re in luck. Rebel Moon — Part Two: The Scargiver will arrive on Netflix on April 19, 2024, a few months after the release of the first part. Netflix has not yet announced an exact release date for the film.  

As for the second installment, series star Skrein told GamesRadar+ that Synder wanted Rebel Moon – Part Two: The Scargiver to feel like Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan’s 2017 war thriller.

Skrein continued, “It’s like there’s a gap at the beginning and then it goes away. And it really goes away. And you know, The Return of the King, The Lord of the Rings is like, ‘Okay, we’re nice.’ .’ you know where they’re going.” It’s like “Okay, let’s sit down and eat a lot of popcorn. and watch it all begin.”   Be sure to follow for more  Rebel Moon stuff.
