Zack Snyder’s Star Wars Pitch Was Shot Down For Being R-Rated And Lacking Existing Characters

Zack Snyder’s original pitch for Rebel Moon as a Star Wars movie faced obstacles due to its lack of pre-existing characters and potential R-rating, according to Empire magazine.

In the interview, Snyder reaffirmed that “a Star Wars movie” was his initial concept for Rebel Moon, adding, “It was Seven Samurai in space. I knew that the origins for George [Lucas] were a lot of those Kurosawa films.”
