Following the success of the trailer, it’s safe to say that the iconic filmmaker is making a dramatic comeback after a nearly two-year break. Not only that, but the director has left Warner Bros. and the DC universe to join a new home at Netflix. This cooperation is already buzzing with a slew of fascinating new opportunities. The most recent being Rebel Moon which would be a two-parter, with the possibility of future spin-offs.

Originally conceived as a Star Wars picture, he grew into a more mature look at George Lucas’ universe. This, however, was rejected when Walt Disney acquired Lucas Films in 2012. He then struck a deal with Stone Quarry and the streaming service Netflix to bring his new universe to reality. The full trailer was released on August 22nd, and it provides the audience with a good look at the outcast Kora, who travels across the galaxy to enlist the help of warriors to take down a despotic entity.
