Rebel Moon – What We Know So Far About Netflix Release Date, Cast Members, And Plot

What do we know so far about Zack Snyder’s upcoming Netflix sci-fi film Rebel Moon? Following the release of Snyder’s first Netflix film, Army of the Dead, it has been announced that the space sci-fi film will be Snyder’s second collaboration as a filmmaker with the streaming giant. It also represents the newest phase in Snyder’s major collaboration with Netflix, which includes the two films as well as the upcoming animation projects Twilight of the Gods and Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas.

Rebel Moon arose from Snyder’s unfulfilled Star Wars concept, which will now be transformed into an unique sci-fi film. Snyder indicated in the project’s formal release that his childhood love of both Star Wars and Akira Kurosawa films will be a key influence on Rebel Moon. Snyder believes that, like the foundations built for the Army of the Dead world, Rebel Moon will serve as the foundation for a new IP for Netflix to grow on.

Snyder had a busy year in 2021, with the release of Army of the Dead followed by the HBO Max debut of his much-anticipated original edit of Justice League, dubbed Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Snyder and Netflix certainly have huge ideas for the future, and with Rebel Moon basically becoming “Zack Snyder’s Star Wars,” his fan base and all-around sci-fi enthusiasts will be watching every move of the impending space adventure with bated breath. Here’s all we know thus far about Rebel Moon.

Rebel Moon – Netflix Release Date

According to reports, Rebel Moon will begin production in 2022 and will most likely premiere on Netflix in 2023 or 2024. It’s also worth mentioning that Snyder’s lesser effort Horse Latitudes has been hampered by the COVID-19 epidemic.

Obviously, how much of an impact the pandemic is by the film’s scheduled start date will have to be evaluated in how the film begins production. The bulk of Snyder’s films have also been released around March, so it’s a safe guess that Rebel Moon will follow suit.

Rebel Moon – Cast Members

As previously said, the film is still in pre-production, thus no cast announcements have been made. Fans will have to be patient if they want to explore Zack Snyder’s new universe. Good things, as we all know, come to those who wait!

Rebel Moon – Plot

Rebel Moon is believed to centre on a peaceful colony on the outside of the galaxy that is under assault by an intergalactic dictator known as Balisarius. As a result, the planet’s people hire a young lady to summon warriors from other planets to assist them in repelling the impending invasion.

With Snyder’s mention to Kurosawa in the film’s announcement, it’s clear to understand how the Seven Samurai influenced Rebel Moon. What will be especially intriguing to see is how the film appears once the Star Wars references have been eliminated.

At the moment, that’s all we know about the plot, though Army of the Dead co-writer Shay Hatten and 300 co-screenwriter Kurt Johnstad are reportedly on board, and under Snyder’s direction, viewers can expect plenty of big-scale action scenes and comic-book-inspired visuals when Rebel Moon finally arrives on Netflix.
