Rebel Moon Poster

So, ladies and gentlemen after the release of Rebel Moon many people are confused that Is it Star Wars? Is it based on the DC universe? Or not? Before watching the movie should you have to watch other movies?

In this blog, we will be clearing all the doubts and will shed some light on some missed details from the trailer.


What is the Rebel Moon?

Rebel Moon is an upcoming movie directed by Zack Snyder the creator of many amazing movies like 300, Man of Steel, etc. It will be available to stream on Netflix. This isn’t a movie, but it will be a complete cinematic universe.

But there’s a backstory behind this movie. It all started years ago when Zack Snyder, the creator of Man of Steel, expressed interest in working on a Star Wars project. He presented his plans for an R-rated, intense, and risky Star Wars film to Lucasfilm. However, the team at Lucasfilm was not particularly interested and instead pitched their ideas to Disney, resulting in a PG-13-rated film. As a result, Snyder’s vision for Star Wars remained incomplete. Nevertheless, he decided to make his own version of the movie.

The trailer gives us an idea about a galaxy that is under possession by a group of evil people named Imperium. Just like the Galactic Empire in the Star Wars, the Imperium goes from one planet to another and conquers them. Their home base is named Motherworld. The members of the Imperium are filled with evil folks.

The setting

The movie Rebel Moon is set in a galaxy ruled by a tyrant group Imperium. A peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the tyrant’s forces. The colony sends a young woman to seek help from warriors on other planets.

The young woman travels to several planets, including a desert planet, a jungle planet, and a planet of space pirates. She gathers a ragtag group of rebels to fight against the Imperial forces.

The film is set in a variety of different planets, each with its own unique environment and inhabitants. The different planets help to create a sense of scale and scope, as the rebels travel from one planet to another in their quest to defeat the Imperium.

The film’s setting is also significant because it reflects the themes of the film. The peaceful colony on Veldt represents the hope and potential for a better future. The other planets, with their harsh environments and dangerous inhabitants, represent the challenges that the rebels will face in their quest to achieve freedom. In short, the setting of Rebel Moon is a galaxy ruled by a tyrant, with a variety of different planets that the rebels travel to in their quest to defeat the tyrant. The different planets help to create a sense of scale and scope, as well as reflecting the themes of the film.

The plot

The Imperium is fighting a war on a planet but then it comes to harvest (Here Harvest means to rest) on a small satellite called Veldt. And to ask them for their donations, water, and food, but because the people of Veldt don’t want to give their harvest to them and at that moment Kora was present there, they fight back, and this thing is not liked by the Imperium. So, they try to bring more armies to conquer Veldt and Kora knows that these people will bring more armies and they can’t win with these people so, that’s why Kora forms a team to face them. And who are those other people? General Titus, Daren, and all of the other people that you’ve seen throughout this trailer. So overall this story is of too little versus too many. Underdogs versus Overdogs.

So, this means that Kora will start a rebellion in the entire galaxy by starting the fight on Veldt.

The movie will be in 2 parts. The first will be based on the girl child named Rebel Moon: Child of Fire. The second part is based on Kora and is named Rebel Moon: The Scargiver because in this teaser we were told that Kora is also Known as Scargiver.

The characters

Kora, the Scargiver

The teaser introduces Kora played by Sofia Boutella as the main character and tells us her backstory. Kora was once a member of the Imperial Force, as shown in the trailer. After completing her training, Kora was promoted to the rank of Soldier in a ceremony where she celebrated with her friends and fell in love with a fellow soldier. However, tragedy struck when her lover died in a crossfire, and Kora became unhappy with the Imperial Army. Depressed with the casualties of the war, Kora left the army and took refuge on the moon of Veldt. She later trains herself and becomes the protagonist.

Jimmy, the robot

Darrian Bloodaxe, a resistance fighter

The name of the character shown is Daren BloodAxe and if you feel like you have seen this guy, then I will tell you that you last saw him in Justice League. This is our Cyborg brother Ray Fisher. So, his story is such that he will work to destroy the plans of Imperium together with his sister in this picture. But these are petty hooligans, then Kora comes to them and tells them to join them, and they will then join them. The name is very impressive, and the appearance is also quite striking. Now let’s see what great work he will do in the picture.

Kai, a mercenary

Kora, a former Imperium member, recruits Kai, a mercenary pilot, to join her in assembling a team of warriors to battle against the oppressive regime of Regent Balisarius. Kai’s expertise in piloting and possession of a valuable Tawau-Class freighter make him an essential asset to Kora’s mission. Not only is he a skilled fighter, but he is also willing to risk his life for the cause.

He is played by Charlie Hunnam, who is known for his roles in “Sons of Anarchy” and “Pacific Rim”.

General Titus, a former Imperial general

General Titus Rebel Moon

General Titus was once a high-ranking officer in the Imperial Army, but one day his conscience stirred within him. He made the difficult decision to leave the army, which was seen as a betrayal. As punishment, he was thrown into a gladiator arena and forced to fight for his life. From then on, he lived as a gladiator, battling in the arena.

He is played by Djimon Hounsou.

Admiral Atticus Noble

Ed Skrein will portray Admiral Atticus Noble, a high-ranking officer in the Imperium army. The Imperium is governed by the tyrannical Regent Balisarius (played by Fra Fee), and Noble is a ruthless and competent military leader who is committed to executing Balisarius’ orders, regardless of how cruel they may be. Furthermore, he is a skilled swordsman and a formidable opponent.

The Easter eggs

  • The imperial body armor of Kora resembles Warhammer and The Order:1886. So that kind of looks amazing in my opinion.
  • The energy Blades used in the trailer is somewhat similar to Star Wars. But The difference is it is powered by the gauntlets worn by the user.


Thus, the movie is directed by Zack Snyder, who is renowned for his visually striking and adrenaline-pumping movies like 300, Watchmen, and Man of Steel. Being a science fiction enthusiast, Rebel Moon is expected to be an equally exciting and visually stunning film.

The movie has an impressive cast, featuring talented and experienced actors like Sofia Boutella, Charlie Hunnam, Ray Fisher, Djimon Hounsou, and Doona Bae. They are sure to bring their A-game to Rebel Moon and make it an unforgettable experience.

So yeah, let us see what happens next. I am excited about it.
