What is the history of the development of Rebellious moon?

About ten years ago, Rebel moon was originally a Star wars pitch developed by Zack Snyder. It would be a more mature take on the universe created by George Lucas and not go beyond meaningful conversations after The Walt Disney Co. acquired Lucasfilm in 2012. Ironically, as we’ve seen for years later, a slightly more mature view of the universe would be the very thing to revitalize the franchise in The Mandalorian.

At one point, Snyder and Newman, who was behind Narcos and Narcos Mexico, decided to make a series of it, but it was ultimately decided to do Rebel moon a feature film, on which Snyder has been actively working in recent years:

“I’ve spent the last two or three years building this universe. Every nook must be painted. I made drawings, I draw constantly and I really cultivate its fertile ground for this world to come true.

Will Rebellious moon also become a cinematographic universe?

As Snyder has already launched several Army of the dead projects for Netflix, the question is, will Rebellious moon be the same? Snyder’s response to this is “I hope.”

“My hope is that it also becomes massive intellectual property and a universe that can be built. “

What is the Netflix release date Rebellious moon?

Netflix has not set a date for Rebellious moon yet, but given the potential scale of production, we shouldn’t hold our breath as movies of this stature tend to take a few years to make. We would expect 2023 at the earliest.
