Rebel Moon: Djimon Hounsou Felt ‘Organically Connected’ to the Story

Rebel Moon star Djimon Hounsou has revealed how he felt “organically connected” to the story of Zack Snyder‘s new space opera film series.

In an interview with ComingSoon, Hounsou was asked about playing a character who is driven by heavier themes like revenge and grief. The actor delved into how these themes resonated with him in the real world, beyond the film.

“These themes resonate very organically for me,” Hounsou explained. “These themes are themes that I feel in — terms of story for that matter — speak volumes of the indoctrination of my continent, Africa. For example, the geopolitical tentacles that have been holding that continent back, being the richest continent in the world, and yet cannot have anything to show for it. So that, in terms of story, was quite powerful and I felt very organically connected immediately with the story.”

What is Rebel Moon about?

“A peaceful colony on the edge of the galaxy is threatened by the armies of a tyrannical regent named Balisarius,” reads the film’s synopsis. “The desperate civilians dispatch Kora, a young woman who has a mysterious past, to seek out warriors from nearby planets to help them challenge the regent.”

Rebel Moon – Part One is now playing in limited theaters and is available to stream through Netflix.
