During an appearance at Netflix’s TUDUM global fan event, Zack Snyder spoke about his upcoming celestial epic Rebel Moon. The Army Of The Dead director said-

“I’ve been working on this story for quite a while. It’s about a group of farmers on the edge of the galaxy that get visited by the armies of the Mother World which are the bad guys. The farmers have to decide to fight or submit. I don’t want to give it all away, but if they had decided to fight, let’s say that was an option, they would have to travel around the galaxy to find warriors to fight with them. And so, it had us traveling quite a bit.”
