Zack Snyder's Rebel Moon

Anticipation is running high for Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon, a film that’s been pitched as his take on the Star Wars universe. Despite being months away from release, the movie has been the subject of much excitement and speculation among fans. The narrative unfolds on a tranquil planet seized by the malignant forces of the Imperium, situated in a remote corner of the galaxy. Snyder has assembled a remarkable cast to bring his dramatic story to life and has infused it with breathtaking, carefully curated visuals. The film, a part of a grand sci-fi saga, holds significant potential for multiple franchise extensions and explicit cuts that have been publicly declared.


A new image of Korean actor Bae Doona, released by Empire Magazine, provides us with another sneak peek into the world of Rebel Moon. Doona’s character, Nemesis, is a semi-mechanical swordmaster who is recruited by Sofia Boutella’s Kora to defend her peaceful planet. In the new image, Doona is seen showcasing her character’s skills, wielding two luminous swords, with additional warriors standing behind her. Their mission is unclear, but their readiness is apparent.

The Genesis of Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon:

Snyder initially proposed a Star Wars film concept to Lucasfilm leader Kathleen Kennedy. He described his idea as a space rendition of “Seven Samurai,” a classic Kurosawa film, adding, “A Star Wars movie was my original concept for it.” Expanding on his pitch, he explained how George Lucas’ work was influenced by Kurosawa’s films. The story, a clear-cut battle between good and evil, was simple and resonated with him. However, his plans fell through following Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm.

Snyder wanted to craft a narrative without the burden of legacy characters, in an R-rated universe, which he acknowledged was “almost a non-starter.” As he delved deeper, he realized the Star Wars universe would probably never align with his vision. Then, Netflix appeared on the scene, funding his concept, which has now transformed into Rebel Moon, featuring stars such as Charlie Hunnam, Anthony Hopkins, Ed Skrein, Fra Fee, Djimon Hounsou, Ray Fisher, among others. Snyder reveals, “‘We have our own ideas about what we want to do with the Star Wars universe. You have an idea about a Star Wars movie? Go do that as a fan film.'”

Rebel Moon is set to launch on Netflix on December 22.
