Rebel Moon 3 possible release date, cast and more

Rebel moon 3 has yet to be confirmed by Netflix, but that won’t stop Zack Snyder from planning it.

“We’ve definitely been working on one Part three, as far as the story goes. We definitely know where we’re all going – we’ve known that for a while, to be honest,” he said Forbes about the future of the series.

Moreover, Rebel moon 3 could just be the beginning, as Snyder added Radio times that we could get four or six films, depending on whether he splits future stories into two films like he did with the first two films.

“We’ve definitely got the story completely wrapped up, we’ve done all that work. We’ve written a treatment for the film, so we’ll see how we go from there,” he noted.

However, first things first, Rebel moon 2 has to be a big enough hit for Netflix to ensure Snyder is allowed to make a third film before even thinking about films moving forward.

So with that in mind, here’s everything you need to know about a potential Rebel moon 3.

Possible Rebel Moon 3 release date: When will Rebel Moon Part 3 hit Netflix?

As mentioned above, Rebel moon 3 has yet to be confirmed by Netflix, so we don’t have an official release date as of April 2024.

Only four months separated the first two Rebel Moon movies, but we’ll have to wait even longer if we get a third movie. Although Snyder is planning it, he doesn’t expect to film it afterward.

“We’re waiting for the entirety of these films to come out, including the director’s cut. I’ll probably make another small film in the meantime, and before we decide what to do with more Rebel Moon movies,” he said GameRadar+.

Snyder has talked about several films over the years, so “other little film” could be anything. It probably rules this out Army of the dead 2 which may also have to fit in somewhere.

Either way, it suggests filming won’t begin Rebel moon 3 until at least 2025 – and possibly a little later.

So we could be looking at 2026 for a new one Rebel Moon film at the earliest, if it’s even confirmed.

Rebel Moon 3 cast: Who could be back for Rebel Moon Part 3?

We haven’t had any official cast announcements since then Rebel moon 3 has yet to be confirmed, but we can make a good guess.

All surviving rebels out Rebel moon 2 is returning, so that’s Sofia Boutella as Kora, Djimon Hounsou as Titus, Staz Nair as Tarak, Elise Duffy as Milius and Cleopatra Coleman as Devra Bloodaxe.

Unfortunately, Michiel Huisman’s Gunnar and Doona Bae’s Nemesis died during the Battle of Veldt, so unless we see them in flashbacks, they won’t return in the third film.

We can also expect Anthony Hopkins to return as Jimmy, while Veldt villagers like Sam (Charlotte Maggi) and Aris (Sky Yang) – formerly a Motherworld soldier – will likely be back as well.

On the villain side, Fra Fee should return as Regent Balisarius. Ed Skrein probably won’t return as Atticus Noble, but Noble has already survived death once in this series, so you can never completely rule him out.

Rebel Moon 3 plot: How does Rebel Moon 2 work?

Rebel moon 2 ends with the big reveal that Princess Issa is still alive and out there somewhere, so the rebels vow to track her down and keep fighting the Motherworld.

It is unclear how exactly Princess Issa survived Kora’s assassination attempt and whether she is still the person who can end all wars and bring peace to the Motherworld. But if it does happen, it will likely be the main focus of the third film.

Snyder has certainly expanded the world more than we’ve seen in the first two films.

“Zack has a story about this project that spans about 800, 900, 1,000 years – how many hundreds of years back and how many hundreds of years forward,” Staz Nair said. GameRadar+.

“I think when you’ve spent thirty years creating a project and worlds like this, the scope is endless. Obviously, I think we’re quietly hopeful and looking forward to seeing what happens.”

The second movie revealed more of the rebels’ backstories, but we still don’t know much about the villains, like Regent Balisarius, other than what Kora told the rebels about her time with the Motherworld.

It means we can expect even more flashbacks in a possible third film. “I had to ask (Zack) about Balisarius’ backstory. We see snippets of his story in these first two films and a few flashbacks,” Fee added. GameRadar+.

“And I’m playing an older version of myself, so there’s clearly a young story to tell…”
