Zack Snyder’s highly Rebel Moon Netflix set Highlights Videos

Zack Snyder’s highly-anticipated Rebel Moon Netflix movie reveals a giant practical science-fiction space ship set.

Rebel Moon set video reveals a massive practical space ship built for Zack Snyder’s sci-fi epic. Having already tackled zombies, superheroes and Ancient Sparta, Snyder will next set his sights on space opera. A Netflix co-production, Rebel Moon concerns a plucky band of resistance fighters defending a distant space colony against an evil tyrant and his powerful army.

The premise of Rebel Moon immediately calls Star Wars to mind, as Snyder originally pitched it to Lucasfilm as a potential Star Wars movie. Now Snyder will re-purpose the idea to launch his own sci-fi franchise, having already announced that Rebel Moon 2 will be shot back-to-back with the first film. The first Rebel Moon sees Snyder reuniting with several actors from the DCEU, including Ray Fisher, Djimon Hounsou and Jena Malone. The cast also includes Anthony Hopkins in a voice role as the robot Jimmy, along with Charlie Hunnam, Ed Skrein, Doona Bae, Sofia Boutella, Cary Elwes and more.

Snyder himself has already whetted fans’ appetites for Rebel Moon with a few teasing images, including a look at Hounsou as General Titus as well as a makeup test for a weird alien creature. Now unofficial set video has emerged thanks to L.A. photojournalist John Schreiber, who tweeted some aerial footage he grabbed of a big space ship set built for Snyder’s space epic.

Start a new franchise from scratch can be very daunting, as it’s hard to gain a foothold in a marketplace dominated by established brands with rabid fanbases. But Snyder may have the best of both worlds with Rebel Moon, a movie that may be his own original idea, but that sounds enough echoes of Star Wars to give people some idea of what they can expect. It remains to be seen of course if audiences embrace Rebel Moon when it hits Netflix.
