Ahead of Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire's Netflix premiere next month, filmmaker Zack Snyder has shared 11 new character posters for his sci-fi epic.
Snyder has also given each character a nickname, identifying Kora as "The Outsider" and Jimmy as "The Guardian," for example. He's said on numerous occasions that he has ambitious plans for the franchise - once pitched to Lucasfilm as a Star Wars movie - and it's clear the Justice League helmer is doing a lot of world-building here.
Along with a sequel which will be released next April, Rebel Moon - Part Two: The Scargiver, Snyder has plans for a video game, podcast, animated series, and more. How much of that comes to fruition will hinge on the success of these movies, but if Army of the Dead was any indication, Snyder has a loyal following on the streamer.
Here's the synopsis for Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire:
From Zack Snyder, the filmmaker behind 300, Man of Steel, and Army of the Dead, comes Rebel Moon, an epic science-fantasy event decades in the making. When a peaceful colony on the edge of a galaxy finds itself threatened by the armies of a tyrannical ruling force, Kora (Sofia Boutella), a mysterious stranger living among the villagers, becomes their best hope for survival. Tasked with finding trained fighters who will unite with her in making an impossible stand against the Mother World, Kora assembles a small band of warriors — outsiders, insurgents, peasants and orphans of war from different worlds who share a common need for redemption and revenge. As the shadow of an entire Realm bears down on the unlikeliest of moons, a battle over the fate of a galaxy is waged, and in the process, a new army of heroes is formed.
The movie's cast, many of whom are spotlighted on the character posters below, includes Sofia Boutella, Djimon Hounsou, Ed Skrein, Michiel Huisman, Doona Bae, Ray Fisher, with Charlie Hunnam, and Anthony Hopkins as the voice of "Jimmy."
Other cast members include Staz Nair, Fra Fee, Cleopatra Coleman, Stuart Martin, Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson, Alfonso Herrera, Cary Elwes, Rhian Rees, E. Duffy, Jena Malone, Sky Yang, Charlotte Maggi, and Corey Stoll.
Snyder directs from a script he wrote with Kurt Johnstad and Shay Hatten. Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire arrives on Netflix on December 22, 2023.
