Rebel Moon is an epic science-fantasy event decades in the making by Zack Snider.
When a peaceful colony on the edge of a galaxy finds itself threatened by the armies of a tyrannical ruling force, Kora, a mysterious stranger living among the villagers, becomes their best hope for survival.
Tasked with finding trained fighters who will unite with her in making an impossible stand against the Mother World, Kora assembles a small band of warriors — outsiders, insurgents, peasants and orphans of war from different worlds who share a common need for redemption and revenge.
As the shadow of an entire Realm bears down on the unlikeliest of moons, a battle over the fate of a galaxy is waged, and in the process, a new army of heroes is formed.
Sofia Boutella plays the role of Kora, the young woman burdened with the task of marshaling a defense force to stand against the forces of Regent Balisarius.
Two-time Oscar winner Anthony Hopkins will be playing the voice of Jimmy, a JC1435 sentient mechanized robot.
Djimon Hounsou plays General Titus. Ed Skrein plays the role of Regent Balisarius, the ferocious and cunning interplanetary warlord.
Snyder initially intended Rebel Moon as a Star Wars movie. He had the idea to pitch Rebel Moon as a more mature take on the universe created by George Lucas. That idea was shut down after Walt Disney Co. acquired LucasFilm in 2012. Through Netflix, Zac Snyder is making the film on his terms.
Rebel Moon will have a limited theatrical release in the weeks before it lands on Netflix.
Rebel Moon: Part One – A Child of Fire premieres December 23 on Netflix. Part Two: The Scargiver will follow up on April 19, 2024.
