The new trailer of director Zack Snyder‘s ‘Rebel Moon — Part One: A Child of Fire’ has been released and it follows the story of struggle and the fight for the protection of the galaxy.

The film, which is set for a limited one-week theatrical release on Dec. 15 and a wide streaming release on Netflix on Dec. 22, stars Sofia Boutella, Ed Skrein, Cleopatra Coleman and Cary Elwes, reports Variety.


The story centres on a young woman living on the outskirts of a galaxy who must find a group of warriors to save the galaxy from an invasion by a tyrant. Snyder revealed to Total Film that ‘Rebel Moon’ takes place in the same universe as another Netflix film of his, ‘Army of the Dead’. though one is set in outer space and the other in apocalyptic Las Vegas.

“‘Army of the Dead’ has a pretty vast mythology that never made it into the movie,” he told Total Film, quoted by Variety. “There’s actually a character from ‘Rebel Moon’ in the ‘Army of the Dead’ animated series that we never did.”

Snyder originally wrote a 172-page script for ‘Rebel Moon’, which he figured would translate into a three-hour plus movie. Netflix and Snyder agreed to cut the film into two parts as a result.

As per Variety, Snyder has also shared that each part of ‘Rebel Moon’ will have a director’s cut available, intended for adults only. “I think for fans of mine and people who are ready to take a deeper, harder dive, that’ll be fun for them,” Snyder said to Vanity Fair.
