Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon Gets Netflix Release Date And Teaser

No Comments

Zack Snyder is back with a brand new, original movie headed to Netflix. The filmmaker behind Man of Steel and Justice League is reuniting with the streaming service for a new, big, original sci-fi flick in the form of Rebel Moon. And while we won’t actually be seeing it until much later this year, we do have a release date and a brief teaser. 

Netflix recently revealed a big trailer previewing its 2023 movie slate. As part of that, Rebel Moon was included towards the end, with brief bits of footage. It’s tough to understand much of what’s going on without more context though. It does, however, look visually impressive and massive in scope. Moreover, this will be the movie closing out the year with a bang for the streamer, with a release date set for December 22. Mark your calendars. 


Here is the synopsis for Rebel Moon. 


“When a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius, they dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past named Kora to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand.” 


This movie originated from an interesting place. Snyder, at one point, pitched an original Star Wars movie to Lucasfilm. It never got made, but the idea was his and sat around for some time. After making Army of the Dead for Netflix, the filmmaker signed a deal to make more projects with the company. At that point, it was decided to turn Rebel Moon into its own thing. Divorced from a galaxy far, far away, the idea is for Snyder to create his own sci-fi franchise. 


The cast is led by Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Djimon Hounsou (Shazam), Ed Skrein (Deadpool), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), Bae Doona (Sense 8), Ray Fisher (Justice League), Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy) and Anthony Hopkins (Transformers: The Last Knight). The massive ensemble also includes Cary Elwes (Saw), Corey Stoll (Ant-Man), Jena Malone (Sucker Punch), Fra Fee (Hawkeye), Cleopatra Coleman (The Last Man on Earth), Alfonso Herrera (Ozark), Stuart Martin (Army of Thieves), Staz Nair (Supergirl), Sky Yang (Halo), Rhian Rees (NOPE), E. Duffy and Charlotte Maggi.


Snyder has had a good relationship with Netflix since leaving Warner Bros. The filmmaker made most of his movies at the studio during his career, including 300 and Watchmen. Most importantly, he is the one who kicked off the DCEU with Man of Steel in 2013. But the so-called Snyderverse effectively ended for good when Zack Snyder’s Justice League was released on HBO Max. Warner Bros. has since moved on, and so has Snyder. 


Rebel Moon arrives on Netflix on December 22.
