Summary

  • Rebel Moon, originally envisioned as a Star Wars movie, has drawn comparisons to George Lucas’ creation due to its space setting and political theme.
  • The parody poster for Netflix’s film, titled “Sexy Star Wars,” highlights the trend of building huge franchises based on space adventures.
  • Rebel Moon shares similarities with Dune and The Chronicles of Riddick in terms of its political background, epic space battles, and rebels fighting oppressive governments.


Rebel Moon was originally conceived as a Star Wars movie exploring alternative stories from a galaxy far, far away, but it has become so much more. However, the comparisons between Zack Snyder’s upcoming film and George Lucas’ creation are the order of the day, especially on social media.

But just as Rebel Moon could become the next Star Wars, the Lucasfilm franchise was once the new Dune, and of course there have been dozens of other attempts to build huge franchises based on space-bound adventures. This is exactly what Instagram artist The Weekly Planet points out in a parody poster for Netflix’s film, changing its title to Sexy Star Wars and including a tagline that reads “What if Star Wars but Star Wars was Dune but also Chronicles of Riddick.”

In a recently released interview that took place during the filming of the movie, Ed Skrein described Rebel Moon as “Star Wars with sex, violence, and swearing,” since the plot shares many similarities with the Lucasfilm franchise, not only because of the space setting but in a number of other ways that become clear following the first trailer.

Star Wars revolves around the war between the rebels trying to restore the High Republic against the Empire established by the Siths. Rebel Moon follows the story of a small space colony whose people gets tired of being oppressed by the current tyrant government and decides to reunite allies from around the galaxy to claim for their freedom.

Is Rebel Moon Also a Riff on Dune and The Chronicles of Riddick?

In the case of Dune is pretty easy to answer, since the saga written by Frank Herbert was one of the main inspirations for George Lucas when he created Star Wars. Dune has also a strong political background behind it, with the story also revolving around a huge war between some of the most powerful people in the universe, their armies and the ones that are just trying to be free to live the way they want to without obeying oppressive governments.

The Chronicles of Riddick features, of course, some epic space battles too and also centers on a conqueror that wants the rest of the universe to respond to his commands. The story is set in a universe where a race known as Necromongers travel through space finding planets to conquer and transform the people in it into their own kind. Tired of living in this reality, a group of rebels goes after an infamous fugitive known as Riddick, who they need to help them to beat the Necromongers.

Snyder has also noted himself that Akira Kurosawa’s Seven Samurai has been a major inspiration for his new franchise. Rebel Moon premieres at Netflix on December 22, while the sequel is set to arrive on April 19, 2024. The director has several plans for this project, including video games and potential spin-offs.
