It’s taken Zack Snyder 20 years to make Rebel Moon and as we inch ever-closer to its December release date, more and more snippets of information are starting to seep through. First up, it’s that the movie will be in multiple parts and that the first part will be entitled ‘A Child From Fire’ (the second will be called ‘The Scargiver’).
Secondly, the first official trailer is out now and you can see it here…
Not only do we have the official trailer but the movie’s writer and director Zack Snyder gives an in-depth breakdown of it in the video here…
Rebel Moon — Part One: A Child From Fire follows the mysterious Kora who, after crash landing on a moon in the furthest reaches of the universe, begins a new life among a peaceful settlement of farmers. But she soon becomes their only hope for survival when the tyrannical Regent Balisarius and his cruel emissary, Admiral Noble, discover the farmers have unwittingly sold their crops to the Bloodaxes — leaders of a fierce group of insurgents hunted by the Motherworld.
Tasked with finding fighters who would risk their lives to defend the people of Veldt, Kora and Gunnar, a tenderhearted farmer naive in the realities of war, journey to different worlds in search of the Bloodaxes, and assemble a small band of warriors who share a common need for redemption along the way: Kai, a pilot and gun for hire; General Titus, a legendary commander; Nemesis, a master swordswoman; Tarak, a captive with a regal past; and Milius, a resistance fighter. Back on Veldt, Jimmy, an ancient mechanized protector hiding in the wings, awakens with a new purpose. But the newly formed revolutionaries must learn to trust each other and fight as one before the armies of the Motherworld come to destroy them all.
