Watch the first trailer for Zack Snyder's Rebel Moon

Netflix has revealed the first trailer for Rebel Moon, giving fans a new look at part one of the epic space opera, titled A Child of Fire, due to be released on the streaming platform on December 22.

The trailer supplements a behind-the-scenes teaser, and shows a montage of brutal battles, alien creatures, mesmerising special effects, love and betrayal - truly the definition of an epic.

Not only were fans treated to new footage, but the release date for the second part of the saga, titled The Scargiver, was also confirmed for April 19, 2024.

Director Zack Snyder had previously announced that the trailer would launch in time for Gamescom this week.

"Adding the final touches," he wrote on X/Twitter, accompanying a photo of two colleagues in the editing booth. "The Rebel Moon teaser trailer will make its global debut live @Gamescom. See you there on Tuesday, August 22."

The film will follow Kora (Sofia Boutella) as she assembles a group of warriors to battle against the Imperium, the oppressive governmental force.

"Tasked with finding trained fighters who will unite with her in making an impossible stand against the Mother World, Kora assembles a small band of warriors — outsiders, insurgents, peasants and orphans of war from different worlds who share a common need for redemption and revenge," reads the logline.

"As the shadow of an entire Realm bears down on the unlikeliest of moons, a battle over the fate of a galaxy is waged, and in the process, a new army of heroes is formed."

The impressive cast also features Djimon Honsou, Charlie Hunnam, Michael Huisman, Staz Nair, Ray Fisher, Jena Malone and Sir Anthony Hopkins; Cary Elwes, Corey Stoll and Stuart Martin have all been cast in undisclosed roles.

Snyder, who has previously directed Army of the Dead and Justice League, revealed that Rebel Moon had existed "elementally" for 20 years, admitting that he had always wanted to make a "giant, atmospheric space adventure".

Rebel Moon: Part One will be released on Netflix on December 22, Part Two: The Scargiver will premiere April 19, 2024.
