Netflix is gearing up for an upcoming blockbuster as they unveil the first poster for the highly anticipated film, Rebel Moon. Following their successful collaboration on Army of the Dead a few years ago, Netflix is once again teaming up with renowned filmmaker Zack Snyder to bring his latest project to life. With the potential to kickstart a new franchise for the streaming giant, Netflix is going all-in on Rebel Moon, even planning to release an alternate cut of the film that promises a more explicit experience. Snyder is set to make a triumphant return, delivering an adventure of epic proportions that aligns with the grand scale he’s known for in his filmography.
The captivating poster showcases Kora (played by Sofia Boutella), the courageous new protagonist determined to free her home from the clutches of an evil organization intent on plundering its valuable resources. On a distant planet plagued by suffering, Kora emerges as the sole hope against an imminent threat that looms over their world.
However, Kora’s heroic efforts are met with resistance from the Imperium, the ruling power that opposes her. To make matters more complicated, Kora grapples with her own personal struggles that further complicate her journey. Just like General Titus (portrayed by Djimon Hounsou), Kora used to serve the Imperium, and now she must confront the consequences of her past actions on the very people she once called home.

Introducing the Heroes and Villains of Zack Snyder’s ‘Rebel Moon’
The Birth of Rebel Moon
If the story feels reminiscent of a tale from a galaxy far, far away, it’s because the concept originated from Snyder himself when he was being considered to direct a Star Wars film. Following Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, the studio explored various options to find the first filmmaker to lend their unique vision within the Star Wars universe. Although Snyder’s vision for the movie never made it into production, he preserved the concept until he could repurpose it into something new and exciting.
Rebel Moon, directed by Zack Snyder, will premiere on Netflix on December 22. While eagerly awaiting further updates, including the release of a full trailer, fans can feast their eyes on the stunning first poster for this captivating sci-fi feature below.
