WATCH: First footage and images from Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Rebel Moon released by Netflix

January 18th, 2023 by Marc Comments

The first footage for Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Rebel Moon has been released and showcases Sofia Boutella’s Kora in the sci-fi actioner.

In a new trailer for Netflix’s 2023 content, we get glimpses of the movie, the characters and the ships and it does look pretty great and it’s been confirmed that the movie releases on December 22nd, 2023.

Snyder himself described Boutella’s Kora as a ‘reluctant hero from a peaceful colony who is about to find she’s her people’s last hope’.

It has also been revealed that Tom Holkenborg AKA Junkie XL, who worked with Snyder on Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and Zack Snyder’s Justice League, will score the movie.

In the latest issue of Variety Ori Marmur, who, together with Kira Goldberg, runs Netflix’s original studio film group, talks about Netflix taking on Snyder’s sci-fi extravaganza: “Zack came in with so much passion.

“This is a film that he’s had in mind for decades. As you know, he’s spent so much time working on other people’s IP at other studios. We worked with him on “Army of the Dead” and we did things that others couldn’t do. We made a film and then a prequel and launched a live experience.

“With ‘Rebel Moon’ he wanted to push the envelope again. When we saw how big the world he created was, we thought it would be better served as two pieces versus one film. It’s the kind of story that can continue to grow. He thinks of it as his take on making something like ‘Star Wars’.”

What do you all think? Can Zack Snyder give the world the next Star Wars? Let us know your thoughts and we’ll know for sure this coming Christmas.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
