Zack Snyder's Rebel Moon movies haven't exactly been universally acclaimed – but that hasn't stopped the filmmaker as he's already planning six instalments of the sci-fi series.


Rebel Moon follows Kora (Sofia Boutella), a young woman with a mysterious past who's made a quiet farming colony her home.

But when it's threatened by the armies of the tyrannical Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee), and particularly his henchman Admiral Noble (Ed Skrein), she's forced to take action, seeking out warriors from neighbouring planets to help her make a stand.

The second part, The Scargiver, picks up as the battle really begins – but the film still leaves the door open for more.

Chatting to, Snyder said: "I guess four makes sense. Four or six movies, depending... I guess it's whether or not every time we make one of these movies we make two, that's the question.

"We were talking about it the other day and I was like, would an audience be disappointed if they only got one movie now from Rebel Moon? Would they be like, 'Oh, it's one now? Great.'"

While Rebel Moon: Part Three hasn't yet been greenlit, Snyder knows exactly what he wants to happen, telling us: "We absolutely have the story all set, we did all that work. We wrote a treatment for the movie so we'll see how we go ahead."

Teasing what fans have got ahead of them in Part Two, Snyder said: "I think the first thing is that people are going to really get this next chapter that really takes and answers all these questions from Part One, and really sort of completes this four-hour experience.

"And I love that we were able to do this insane third act battle. That's just completely crazy."

Rebel Moon: Part Two – The Scargiver is releasing globally on Netflix on April 19th.
