Zack Snyder made an appearance at Gamescom to reveal that his take on a Star Wars-style space opera – Rebel Moon – set to release later this year. 

It was the opening show of videogame expo Gamescom last night and amid the glimpses of highly-anticipated video games, Zack Snyder made an appearance in Germany to use the world’s biggest video game show to publicise the upcoming release of Rebel Moon, his sci-fi space opera that will be launching on Netflix late this year.

The film promises to be a sci-fi adventure where ‘the story is set in motion when 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 neighbouring planets to help them make a stand.’

The movie stars Sofia Boutella as Kora, ‘as a mysterious woman who helps organise the peaceful residents of a planet to fight back against an authouritarian government.’ Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, Staz Nair, Michiel Huisman, Charlie Hunnam, E. Duffy and Djimon Hounsou also feature. Oh yeah, and Sir Anthony Hopkins plays a robot called Jimmy who we already suspect may be our favourite character.

There are two films on the way, with Snyder having shot them both back-to-back. Part one is titled A Child of Fire, while part two is called The Scargiver. The first part of Rebel Moon debuts on Netflix on December 22nd this year, while part two debuts on April 19th 2024.

Snyder wasn’t just hijacking Gamescom to troll video game fans with presentations about his movies either. He justified his appearance by announcing that Rebel Moon will get an accompanying video game too, set straight after the events of the two films. The title will be a co-operative or solo game and will allow players to pick their own rebel to take on the Empi…., sorry, ‘authoritarian government’.

Sounds like Netflix is ramping up the scale of its video game plans though. We’ll bring you more Rebel Moon news as we hear it. Here’s that trailer.
