The initial instalment, named Rebel Moon: A Child of Fire, is scheduled to grace screens on December 22, as previously announced. Following suit, the second part, Rebel Moon: The Scargiver, will make its Netflix debut on April 19, 2024.
Marking the maiden venture under the first-look collaboration between Netflix, Zack and Deborah Snyder, along with Wesley Coller’s The Stone Quarry Productions, Rebel Moon is set against the backdrop of a tranquil colony on the galaxy's edge. The idyllic existence is threatened by the oppressive forces of Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee). Amidst the turmoil, Kora (Sofia Boutella), a mysterious outsider, emerges as their beacon of hope. Tasked with rallying skilled fighters for an improbable stand against the Mother World, Kora assembles a motley crew of warriors from different realms, all united by the thirst for redemption and vengeance. As an entire realm looms over an unlikely moon, the battle for the galaxy's destiny unfolds, forging a new legion of heroes.
Conceived by Snyder during his college years, the film boasts an ensemble cast including Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Anthony Hopkins, and many more. Co-written by Snyder, Shay Hatten, and Kurt Johnstad, the story has been a labour of love. The production is also backed by Grand Electric, and the expertise of Eric Newman.
Snyder recently confirmed in a Vanity Fair interview that Rebel Moon’s two parts will each have different versions tailored for varying audiences. While the first part targets all audiences, the second offers a more mature take for ardent fans. This strategic move intends to cater to both the mainstream and those eager to explore the story's deeper layers.
