Rebel Moon is the new film project of Zack Snyder, the famous movie director like Zack Snyder’s Justice League, 300, Batman v Superman or, more recently, Army of the dead. It is an idea created years ago by Snyder himself for the saga Star Wars that never prospered; and is that the purchase of Lucasfilm and the galactic franchise by Disney truncated several future projects for Star Wars. Now, Zack Snyder confirms with Netflix that Rebel Moon will be a science fiction film that will begin filming in early 2022.
From Star Wars to film after discarding the series
And it is that the idea of Rebel Moon has gone through several phases since its first sketches, going from being a discarded project for Star Wars to a possible science fiction series; finally, it will be a new feature film for Netflix which for now does not include a release date but could well be released at the end of 2022 if production starts in a few months as is now planned.
Rebel Moon tells the story of a peaceful colony located in the confines of the galaxy that sees its existence threatened by the troops of the tirano Belisarius. The inhabitants of said colony will rely on a mysterious woman to gather a group of warriors who can face the invading army. At the moment there is no information about its possible distribution.
Zack Snyder trust a good part of the creative team of Army of the dead, since both projects were started more or less jointly; thus, Snyder co-writes the script alongside Shay Hatten Y Kurt Johnstad. According to Snyder himself on Rebel Moon “I grew up being a fan of Akira Kurosawa and Star Wars. It comes from my love of science fiction and great adventures. I hope it becomes a gigantic intellectual property and a universe to build, “the filmmaker told The Hollywood Reporter.
