Not a lot of people know about this interesting bit of information but Justice League director Zack Snyder came real close to joining the Star Wars franchise. The DC Extended Universe filmmaker once pitched a project to Lucasfilm and the production company was apparently all ears on his ideas. Unfortunately, for reasons Snyder chose not to disclose, the stars just didn't align and the project didn't come to fruition.
Thankfully, streaming giant Netflix, which was home to Zack's most recent hit Army of the Dead adopted the project titled Rebel Moon. As it stands, very little is known about the film's plot but Snyder admits that it's still heavily inspired by the Star Wars franchise.
Now, in an encouraging new update, Snyder may have just revealed that production for Rebel Moon has already kickstarted with principal photography about to take place "in a few months". Taking to his Vero account, Snyder shared the exciting news which was accompanied by official concept art from the film. Check it out here:

It's a complete shame that Snyder's original pitch wasn't adapted into a full-blown Star Wars project because frankly, his directorial style would have looked really impressive in a film or series which takes place in a galaxy far, far away. Still, that's not to say that Lucasfilm and Disney's doors have closed on him and who knows, maybe in the not-so-distant future, we'll get to see him finally helm his Star Wars project.
Other details about Rebel Moon are still being kept under wraps. Meanwhile, there's a ton of Star Wars content available for streaming exclusively on Disney+.
