is Rebel Moon a Trilogy or a 2 part-movie?
Netflix has made the official announcement of Rebel Move and even posted the official trailer on their Instagram page. But the question brewing in the mind of Jack Snyder’s fans is whether or not the movie is a trilogy or a 2-part movie. Is Rebel Moon a trilogy or a 2-part movie? Let’s find out?
Is Rebel Moon a Trilogy?
No. Rebel Moon is not a trilogy. Although it was originally planned to be a trilogy, Rebel Moon will be a 2-part movie. While Rebel Moon features an extensive storyline in an American Space Opera setting, the movie will be in 2-parts. It will only get a trilogy and become a franchise if it enjoys much popularity among viewers and racks in some amazing numbers, Synder hopes.
Although Snyder has revealed that he will release a director’s cut of the movie which will run for more than the duration of both movie with an extra hour. For now, Rebel Moon is not a trilogy but a 2-part movie. However, Snyder expresses hope that when Rebel Moon eventually comes out, it will receive critical acclaim and this may boost the future of the film and make it a film franchise.
Therefore, the success of Rebel Moon movie depends on its wild acceptance by fans. Jack Snyder is working on making the movie one with its own universe and hopefully, with a cult following. Jack Snyder said:
“My hope is that this also becomes a massive IP and a universe that can be built out.
If the movie does not fulfil the much needed anticipation and hype after the release of the first two parts, Snyder may put the vision to rest. However, if it enjoys as much popularity as The Star Wars series, it will run longer than a 2-part movie and will become a franchise.
