Sofia Boutella is the primary lead of Rebel Moon and she’ll be playing Kora. As a former member of the Imperium, Kora knows exactly what happens to the people who live in the places where the organization arrives for exploitation next. She wants the community to stand up and fight back against the government that has the clear intention of tearing their land apart. Kora is meant to be a complex hero, due to the fact that she used to work for the Imperium before changing her mind and dedicating her life to protecting those who couldn’t protect themselves. She has the destiny of the galaxy in her hands.

Charlie Hunnam will be in charge of playing Kai, a pilot who will do whatever he can to help Kora in her quest of saving her new home. Due to the steampunk nature of the world where Rebel Moon takes place in, it will be hard to find proper equipment for combat or traveling, leaving the characters at the mercy of whatever scrap metal they can find hidden within their planet. Added to that, a hero who has left his glory days behind him will be needed to accomplish the mission, and Kora will need to do whatever it takes to convince him of joining her quest.
