Is Rebel Moon Star Wars? Zack Snyder's Sci-Fi Epic To Hit Netflix In Two Parts

is Rebel Moon Star Wars? Zack Snyder's latest sci-fi epic, Rebel Moon, has been the talk of the town in recent months, with many fans wondering if the film is going to be Snyder's take on Star Wars.
According to Variety, the director's cinematic follow-up to his undead casino heist, Army of the Dead, will be broken up into two parts, with the first premiering at the end of this year.

During a recent sit-down with Netflix's studio chiefs, Kira Goldberg and Ori Marmur, Marmur stated, "Zack came in with so much passion. This is a film that he's had in mind for decades. As you know, he's spent so much time working on other people's IP at other studios. We worked with him on Army of the Dead. And we did things that others couldn't do. We made a film and then a prequel and launched a live experience. With Rebel Moon, he wanted to push the envelope again. When we saw how big the world he created was, we thought it would be better served as two pieces versus one film. It's the kind of story that can continue to grow. He thinks of it as his take on making something like Star Wars."

So what can we expect from Rebel Moon? Heavily inspired by Akira Kurosawa's Seven Samurai, the film centers around a pacifistic colony in the farthest reaches of outer space, whose citizens must take up arms against a tyrannical invading force known as the Regent Balisarius.
