Netflix has announced “Rebel Moon,” the latest epic science-fantasy event decades in the making from renowned filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Man of Steel, Army of the Dead).
Rebel Moon will consist of two parts, “A Child of Fire” and “The Scargiver,” and will premiere on the streaming service on December 22, 2023, for part one, and April 19, 2024, for part two.
Here’s an overview of the film:
When a peaceful colony on the edge of a galaxy finds itself threatened by the armies of a tyrannical ruling force, Kora (Sofia Boutella), 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.
The key cast members include Sofia Boutella, Djimon Hounsou, Ed Skrein, Michiel Huisman, Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, with Charlie Hunnam and Anthony Hopkins as the voice of ‘Jimmy’.
