Zack Snyder Partners with Netflix for New Project After Success of Army of the Dead
After the huge success of his movie Army of the Dead, Zack Snyder will work with the streaming giant Netflix. After working for a long time at Warner Bros. and DC, Zack has found a new home with a streaming service that promises a lot of fun new projects. People say that his next movie, Rebel Moon, will be a big two-parter that might have spin-offs. Snyder has been a fan of Star Wars his whole life, and at first he wanted Rebel Moon to be a Star Wars movie. He thought it would be a good idea to pitch Rebel Moon as a more grown-up take on the world that George Lucas had made. After Walt Disney Co. bought LucasFilm in 2012, that idea was put to rest. Snyder then made a deal with Deborah Snyder’s production company Stone Quarry and Netflix so that Rebel Moon could be changed into a whole new world.
Rebel Moon is a bit of a change for Zack Snyder. It is a different kind of science fiction that takes place in a calm colony on the edge of a faraway galaxy. The forces of the cruel Regent Balisarius pose a threat to the existence of the once-peaceful colony. In an effort to stop this great evil, the people of the colony send Kora, a young woman with a troubled past, to nearby planets to ask for help from warriors. Here is everything we know about the cast, trailer, release date, story, and more for the upcoming sci-fi fantasy movie.

On August 22, 2023, during a showing at Gamescom 2023, the first trailer for Rebel Moon was shown. Over three and a half minutes long, the video gives fans a good look at the world of the movie as well as all the high-octane action and slow-motion that many have come to expect from Snyder.
The first pieces of footage for the film were released in a sizzle reel for Netflix’s 2023 film slate.
