Rebel Moon Director Zack Snyder Welcomes Your Inevitable Star Wars Comparisons


The two-part epic “Rebel Moon” might remind audiences of “Star Wars,” but it’ll also be more adult: according to sound mixer Andy Koyama, there are R-rated versions of the two films already in the works, in addition to the standard cut. In an interview with Empire, Snyder revealed that his wish for an R-rated “Star Wars” was “almost a non-starter,” and that “the deeper I got into it, I realized it was probably never going to be what I wanted.”

Still, “Rebel Moon” has a plot that seems to carry the spirit of “Star Wars.” It’s all about a group of underdog rebels facing off against a powerful villain, and Snyder has previously described it as “a romantic sci-fi film on a scale that is, frankly, as big as you can make a movie.” During the set visit, Snyder explained the special place “Star Wars” has in pop culture, and the ways in which its impact has inspired a generation of artists. “It’s a rare thing, of course, because [with] ‘Star Wars,’ the fan base basically just aged with the movies and then had children that then also became fans of the movie and their children had children that became friends with the movie,” he said. He continued, “I do also understand the love of it and how canonized it is and actually how immobile it is.”
