Merry Christmas to one and all! Fresh off Friday’s release of the first Rebel Moon film, Netflix has dropped the trailer for the sequel, Rebel Moon Part Two: The Scargiver. Set for an April 19th release, the film, which director Zack Snyder is teasing as a war movie, features Sofia Boutella’s Kora leading the rebels she recruited in the first chapter in an all-out war with the Motherworld as she defends The Veldt.
They say no man is an island, but I’ll admit, as one of the few critics to give Rebel Moon: A Child of Fire a good review, I started to feel that way as the reviews began dropping on Rotten Tomatoes. Snyder seems to inspire two emotions in critics – hate and admiration. I’m in the latter category, but 90% of the other folks reviewing this movie seemed to despise it. Thankfully, once the movie dropped on Netflix, it seemed to pick up a lot of fans. Our readers seemed to be mixed-to-positive, even if the common refrain is that Snyder should have released his extended, R-rated director’s cut first, as the PG-13 version we have felt incomplete.
Whatever the case, the PG-13-rated sequel picks up where the first film left off. Here’s the synopsis from Netflix:
REBEL MOON – PART TWO: THE SCARGIVER continues the epic saga of Kora and the surviving warriors as they prepare to sacrifice everything, fighting alongside the brave people of Veldt to defend a once peaceful village, a newfound homeland for those who have lost their own in the fight against the Motherworld. On the eve of their battle, the warriors must face the truths of their pasts, each revealing why they fight. As the full force of the Realm bears down on the burgeoning rebellion, unbreakable bonds are forged, heroes emerge, and legends are made.
