But before that happens, What’s On Netflix has revealed the official titles for both Rebel Moon chapters. Rebel Moon Part 1: A Child of Fire will open on December 22nd, accompanied by a limited theatrical release.
Rebel Moon Part 2: The Scargiver doesn’t have an official date, however. Rumors are it could be as soon as April 2024.
The film began life as a pitch by Snyder to Lucasfilm for a Seven Samurai-inspired Star Wars movie. When that idea was passed on, Netflix swooped in, continuing their close-knit working relationship with Snyder, who also has the Army of the Dead franchise with them.
Here’s the synopsis: “A peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius. Desperate people dispatch a young woman with a mysterious past to seek out warriors from neighboring planets to help them make a stand.”
The cast is led by Sofia Boutella, joined by Ed Skrein, Charlie Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Doona Bae, Corey Stoll, Cary Elwes, Ray Fisher, Sofia Boutella, Stuart Martin, Jena Malone, Staz Nair, E. Duffy, Charlotte Maggi, Alfonso Herrera, Michiel Huisman,Cleopatra Coleman, Fra Fee, and Sky Yang.
