Everything we know about Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon part 2

Rebel Moon part 1 was a hit — here's what to expect next

Before Christmas, Netflix gave director Zack Snyder a gift that was better than any Star Wars movie he could have made for Lucasfilm. Instead, Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire offered Snyder the chance to make his own space epic about a band of rebels making their stand against the Empire-like Imperium, which the leader of Motherworld rules.

In the end, Snyder had too much material for just one movie. So, in addition to an upcoming director’s cut for Rebel Moon Part 1, Snyder has a sequel, Rebel Moon – Part 2: The Caregiver, ready to go this spring. We’re sharing everything you need to know about Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon Part 2.

What happened in Rebel Moon Part 1?

Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire introduced viewers to Kora, a member of a remote farming village on a moon called Veldt. While Kora was courted by two men, including Gunnar, she resisted the idea of taking a mate. However, her peaceful life was shattered when Atticus Noble and an Imperium warship arrived on Veldt. Despite initially presenting himself as friendly and reasonable, Noble murdered the leader of the village, demanded nearly all of the villager’s grain crop, and left a garrison of troops behind.

Kora nearly single-handedly killed the garrison when they tried to rape a teenage girl in the village. To protect her new home, Kora and Gunnar went off to recruit mercenaries and revolutionaries who wanted to make a stand against the Imperium. Kora also confided to Gunnar that she was the adopted daughter of Balisarius, the current ruler of the Imperium and Motherworld.

Tarak, Nemesis, ex-Imperium general Titus, Kai, Darrian Bloodaxe, and a few of Bloodaxe’s men agreed to fight alongside Kora. But Kai’s devotion to the cause was a ruse, and he betrayed the group to Noble. In the ensuing battle, Kai is killed by Gunnar, and Kora defeats Noble and seemingly kills him. Regardless, Bloodaxe and most of his followers laid down their own lives in the process. The remaining warriors accompanied Kora and Gunnar back to Veldt to be paid. Meanwhile, Imperium forces revived Noble’s body, and he received orders from Balisarius to crush the rebellion against his rule. Balisarius also told Noble to bring Kora to him alive so she could be publicly executed.

What we know about Netflix’s Avatar: The Last Airbender
The acclaimed animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender is heading to live-action soon.
netflix avatar the last airbender live action series featured 2

This month, the newest Netflix original series is a big-budget adaptation of the beloved animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender. Fans of the franchise were burned by the previous adaption, but the new show appears to be much closer to the spirit of the original.

The series has been a long time coming, and it was first announced by Netflix in 2018. Avatar: The Last Airbender co-creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko were originally supposed to shepherd the franchise to live-action themselves. However, both DiMartino and Konietzko departed the series over creative differences with Netflix. That's why the new showrunner, Albert Kim, took over in 2021 and maintained that position through the first season. Whether there will be a second season remains to be seen, but Netflix has placed a large bet on this show with a budget that is reportedly $15 million per episode.

There might be too many podcasts out there. They cover the gamut when it comes to topics, ranging from music podcasts to sports, horror, and food podcasts (and quite literally everything in between). Some podcasts are great for road trips, while others, frankly, probably aren't worth your time.

Given the vast sea of spoken stories available for download, it's no wonder that space and science are major topics. These are fascinating fields full of endless discovery, with tales that can inspire, inform, and push us to think in a completely different way. Which is to say, there are a lot of podcasts dealing in this category. But that's where we come in, separating the flowers from the weeds.
