Rebel Moon To Release In Two Parts, Part One on December 22nd


Director Zack Snyder, known for his visually stunning and epic films like “300” and “Watchmen,” is venturing into uncharted territory with his latest project, “Rebel Moon.” Set to be released on Netflix, this rejected Star Wars pitch raises cautious optimism among fans, given Snyder’s recent track record and the underwhelming response to “Army of the Dead.”

“Rebel Moon” transports viewers to a sprawling universe teeming with cyborg warriors, ancient robots, and alien planets. The story revolves around Kora (portrayed by Sofia Boutella), a woman with a mysterious past who leads a disparate group of rebels in their fight against an oppressive regime. As they navigate treacherous worlds, the film delves into themes of redemption, unity, and the enduring human spirit. Knowing how poorly Snyder’s scripts are, this is a bit scary.

While Snyder’s recent directorial efforts have faced criticism, it is essential to acknowledge his distinct visual style and unwavering commitment to creating immersive cinematic experiences. Despite reservations stemming from “Army of the Dead’s” mixed reception, the director’s ability to craft visually striking worlds and his passion for storytelling is a plus among a sea of for-hire directors that bring nothing to the medium.

The film boasts an ensemble cast in addition to Boutella, including Charlie Hunnam as the mercenary starship pilot Kai, Michiel Huisman as the naive farmer Gunnar, and Doona Bae as the swordmaster Nemesis.

As “Rebel Moon” prepares for the first part of its release in December, we’ll hopefully learn more to rekindle the excitement that once surrounded Snyder’s work. Considering it’s already being split into two parts doesn’t necessarily feel like he’s learned his lessons though.

Rebel Moon: Part One will be on Netflix on December 22nd.
