Zack Snyder launches his Rebel Moon epic with the first film next month on Netflix, and the action-heavy trailer is online. Netflix released the trailer for Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire on Sunday, and you can check it out below.

The trailer centers on Kora (Sofia Boutella), a mysterious figure living in a farming colony far from the ruling “Motherworld.” When the Motherworld’s forces arrive to put their foot down, she ends up putting together a group of warriors who can take the fight to the oppressors. We get a look at Ed Skrein’s evil Admiral Noble, Charlie Hunnam’s rebel pilot Kai, Michiel Huisman’s farmer Gunnar and others.

The film arrives on Netflix on December 22nd and the first of a two-part saga. It and stars Boutella, Fra Fee, Skrein, Cleopatra Coleman, Ray Fisher, Huisman, Hunnam, Djimon Hounsou, Doona Bae, Staz Nair, E. Duffy, and Anthony Hopkins, and is described as follows:

After crash landing on a moon in the furthest reaches of the universe, Kora (Sofia Boutella), a stranger with a mysterious past, begins a new life among a peaceful settlement of farmers. But she soon becomes their only hope for survival when the tyrannical Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee) and his cruel emissary, Admiral Noble (Ed Skrein), discover the farmers have unwittingly sold their crops to the Bloodaxes (Cleopatra Coleman and Ray Fisher) — leaders of a fierce group of insurgents hunted by the Motherworld.

Tasked with finding fighters who would risk their lives to defend the people of Veldt, Kora and Gunnar (Michiel Huisman), a tenderhearted farmer naive in the realities of war, journey to different worlds in search of the Bloodaxes, and assemble a small band of warriors who share a common need for redemption along the way: Kai (Charlie Hunnam), a pilot and gun for hire; General Titus (Djimon Hounsou), a legendary commander; Nemesis (Doona Bae), a master swordswoman; Tarak (Staz Nair), a captive with a regal past; and Milius (E. Duffy), a resistance fighter. Back on Veldt, Jimmy (voiced by Anthony Hopkins), an ancient mechanized protector hiding in the wings, awakens with a new purpose. But the newly formed revolutionaries must learn to trust each other and fight as one before the armies of the Motherworld come to destroy them all.
