'Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire' Release Date, Cast, Spoilers and Trailer: Everything Fans Should Know By Now

Here is everything we know about the forthcoming “Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire."

Following the success of “Army of the Dead,” Zack Snyder is working on a new Netflix project called “Rebel Moon.” The American film director is known for large stories, and fans anticipate that the upcoming epic space opera picture will be complicated and spectacular enough to compete with the Star Wars franchise in terms of quality and entertainment.

To begin, “Rebel Moon” was inspired by Akira Kurosawa's works and the “Star Wars” saga. In reality, the picture began development as a Star Wars film, which Zack offered to Lucasfilm after the Walt Disney firm purchased the film and television production firm in 2012.

“Rebel Moon” was revealed to be a two-part picture in April, with both parts originally scheduled to be filmed back-to-back. “Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire” is the first film, while “Rebel Moon - Part Two: The Scargiver” is the second. Here is everything we know so far about the upcoming “Rebel Moon” film.

Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire’ Release Date

The imminent “Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire” will premiere on Netflix on December 22, 2023, with a limited theater distribution planned. A second installment is expected, although no release date has been set as of this writing. The sci-fi picture will also have a limited theatrical release in the United States on December 15, 2023, per Netflix.

“Rebel Moon” is intended to be its own story, which Zack intends to grow into its own Star Wars-like universe. However, it is unknown what the sequels will cover, but they may include the genuine "rebel moon" because the filmmaker previously stated that the namesake planet will not appear in the first installment.

Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire’ Cast

The cast of “Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire” includes A-listers like Sir Anthony Hopkins, Ed Skrein, and Sofia Boutella, who will play Kora, a former Imperium member who unites soldiers from throughout the galaxy in opposition to the Imperium. Anthony will play Jimmy, the last member of the dead monarch's race of mechanical knights, and Ed will play Admiral Atticus Noble, a high-ranking enforcer of the Mother World and commander of the Imperium army.

Other stars on “Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire” include Djimon Hounsou as General Titus, a former general recruited to lead the rebellion against the Imperium; Jena Malone as Harmada, a lethal spider combatant recruited by Kora; Cleopatra Coleman as Devra Bloodaxe, Darrian's sister recruited by Kora; Ray Fisher as Darrian Bloodaxe, a warrior recruited by Kora; and Donna Bae as Nemesis, a cybernetic swordsman.

Charlie Hunnam, who starred in “The Lost City of Z,” will play Kai, a mercenary pilot of a starship hired by Kora, in “Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire.” Ray Porter, Rhian Rees, Alfonso Herrera, Cary Elwes, Corey Stoll, and Stuart Martin have also been cast in unknown roles.

Rebel Moon - Part One: A Child of Fire’ Spoilers

For starters, “Rebel Moon” is a sci-fi epic film about a troop of teenage warriors who are tasked with fighting oppressive alien invaders. Per EpicFlix, the moon of Veldt is threatened by Regent Balisarius' Imperium armies in a universe dominated by the corrupt government of the Mother World. Kora, a former Imperium member seeking penance for her history in the repressive government's leadership, is charged with recruiting soldiers from throughout the galaxy before the Mother World's armies return to the planet.

“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 basic premise of “Rebel Moon” read.
