Zack Snyder is officially set to make his return to Netflix with his upcoming project Rebel Moon. The project has received a shockingly low MPAA rating prior to its release.
Zack Snyder has never been known to play things safe, be it from his Snyderverse films to his prior Netflix outings like Army of the Dead. Shockingly, his next project Rebel Moon has received an official MPAA rating of PG-13 despite featuring “sequences of strong violence, sexual assault, bloody images, language, sexual material and partial nudity.”
Blood and violence have become common place in PG-13 films, in no small part thanks to action films like those directed by Zack Snyder. However, Rebel Moon receiving such a low rating despite featuring sequences of sexual assault certainly comes as a shock, though likely won’t deter fans from checking out the sci-fi epic once it releases on Netflix.
Zack Snyder has previously described Rebel Moon as a story originally developed as his take on the Seven Samurai story set within the Star Wars Universe. It has since been repurposed as part of its own original cinematic world, and potentially the launch of yet another genre film series with Netflix, along with Army of the Dead, which debuted on the service in 2021.
The story of Rebel Moon is described as follows by Netflix: “The star-trotting epic Rebel Moon is about Kora (Sofia Boutella), a lone-wolf soldier who’s found community and connection on the quiet farming moon of Veldt. She’s a long way away from her former life fighting for the Imperium, the brutal interstellar royal empire bent on controlling the galaxy. But Kora’s violent past is dredged up when sadistic admiral Atticus Noble (Ed Skrein) comes to Veldt via a Dreadnought-class battle cruiser and stirs up deadly trouble on the orders of the Imperium’s tyrannical regent, Balisarius (Fra Fee)”
