Zack Snyder may not be directing a Star Wars movie anytime soon, but he’s teamed up with Netflix to make his version of a galaxy far far away. Production has begun for the film, and Snyder has shared a look at Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) in costume.

No details have been released about Hounsou’s character yet, but I bet he’s going to be some kind of space general—at least someone with a fight scene. You don’t take someone like him with roles in Gladiator or GOTG and just have him be a politician in some senate hearing.
With production only starting now, I’m thinking that Rebel Moon will be looking at a 2023 release. Though I think that Snyder definitely has problems when it comes to pulling off his narratives, his work is always very visually striking, and maybe Rebel Moon will give him a chance to actually brush the story up this time around. Fingers crossed we get our first look before the year comes to an end.
Here’s the synopsis:
The film is set in a peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy that finds itself threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius. They dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand the Tyrant.
No release date has been set for Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon, but you can watch out for the film on Netflix.
