“The one thing that I am really having a really good time with is, and I don’t even know if I am supposed to talk about it, this RPG that they’re doing that is just literally insane and so immersive and so intense and so huge. We talked about how we would do that game and we just said, ‘Let’s go.'”

Zack Snyder will direct, write, produce, and do the cinematography of Rebel Moon. He is joined by Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad as scribes of the movie.

Hatten revealed on Collider, "Rebel Moon is... I mean, it's in the can. It's in post-production right now. Zack [Snyder] is editing away, and I've seen bits and pieces of it. I've seen scenes here and there and a cut of the trailer."

Hatten added, "I tell him this all the time, but 300 was one of the first R-rated movies that I convinced my parents to take me to see in theaters, which I think he hates me saying because it makes me seem super young."

Other producers include Deborah Snyder, Wesley Coller, and Eric Newman. The editor of Rebel Moon is Dodo Dorn, and the music will be produced by Tom Holkenborg.

Netflix will be distributing Rebel Moon with plans of a limited theatrical release and it is expected to have a back-to-back movie with Rebel Moon Part 2.

The official synopsis of Rebel Moon is as follows:

"A peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. The desperate civilians dispatch Kora, a young woman who has a mysterious past to seek out warriors from nearby planets to help them challenge the regent."

The synopsis of Rebel Moon puts the character of Sofia Boutella, Kora, in the center of it all as she will be the main heroine of the movie where she will be seeing out to the nearest planets to gather warriors as they make a stand against the tyrant, Balisarius.

Balisarius is the anticipated villain. He's a big man with huge ambitions and he will do it together with his army.

Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire had its official trailer and in the description lies the synopsis for the Snyder movie:

"After crash landing on a moon in the furthest reaches of the universe, Kora (Sofia Boutella), a stranger with a mysterious past, begins a new life among a peaceful settlement of farmers. But she soon becomes their only hope for survival when the tyrannical Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee) and his cruel emissary, Admiral Noble (Ed Skrein), discover the farmers have unwittingly sold their crops to the Bloodaxes (Cleopatra Coldeman and Ray Fisher) - leaders of a fierce group of insurgents hunted by the Motherworld."
"Tasked with finding fighters who would risk their lives to defend the people of Veldt, Kora and Gunnar (Michiel Huisman), a tenderhearted farmer naive in the realities of war, journey to different worlds in search of the Bloodaxes, and assemble a small band of warriors who share a common need for redemption along the way. But the newly formed revolutionaries must learn to trust each other and fight as one before the armies of the Motherworld come to destroy them all."

Is Rebel Moon Connected To Star Wars?

There will also be Rebel Moon Part 2 which will continue the narrative so expect the ending to be open-ended. Interestingly enough, Rebel Moon is said to be Zack Snyder's rendition of one of his favorite franchises of all time, Star Wars.

There are a lot of similarities, to be fair, like being set in the galaxy, having a heroine that would save everyone and a villain that seeks power. The list could go on!

Speaking with Variety, the VP of Original Studio Film of Netflix, Ori Marmur revealed that Rebel Moon is Zack Snyder's own version of Star Wars:

"When we saw how big the world he created was we thought it would be better served as two pieces versus one film. It’s the kind of story that can continue to grow. He thinks of it as his take on making something like 'Star Wars.'"

Recently, Snyder teased that this is what we can expect from Rebel Moon Part Two: The Scargiver (via Empire):

"The second movie is really a war movie. At the beginning they harvest the crops, and we have a bunch of stuff in the village, sort of the Why We Fight aspect of the movie. We have time for relationships. Then the next thing is the big battle. It's really fun."
