Rebel Moon: Zack Snyder knows that comparisons with Star Wars will be inevitable
Zack Snyder he is aware that he will have to face the comparisons that the public will make between his own Rebel Moon to the sci-fi cult Star Wars. The epic original film Netflix – a space opera centered on a piecemeal rebellion against a tyrannical dictatorship – will likely suffer the constant comparisons to a galaxy far, far away. Talking about this was the person concerned himself who revealed that he had already taken this possibility into account.
“Obviously these comparisons will be made“, he said Zack Snyder to Vanity Fair . “Anything in a spaceship will read: ‘This is empty Star Wars.’ So I understand and welcome the comparisons. But at the same time, I think our thing is really a completely different experience. However, Snyder pitched a Star Wars movie to Lucasfilm shortly before Disney acquired the IP.
“I was in post-production on Man of Steelrecalls Snyder. “TOI had heard that at one point there were rumors about the possibility of doing three more films [di Star Wars]. My opinion has been that if you let me have the IP, I will make this amazing movie and not meddle in anything you guys are doing. The movie of Zack Snyder it would have had no impact on the existing canon of Star Wars until that moment. The director met with Kathleen Kennedy to pitch the idea, but Disney went in a different direction.
