The article titled Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire Ending Explained will contain significant spoilers.
Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire has opened to some of the worst reviews of the filmmaker’s career. At the aggregate website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds a weak 23% approval rating on 94 critic reviews. Even more eye-opening is the surprising 73% audience approval, even though the film has yet to open at the time of this writing.
Our critic, M.N. Miller, called the film, “For all its epic scope and world-building, Rebel Moon is a vain and hollow attempt at a love child “throupling” of grandeur adventure films such as Star Wars, The Matrix, and the Indiana Jones franchise.”
Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire‘s story follows Kora, a beautiful farmhand with a secret. Kora lives peacefully on the independent planet of Veidt with her inner circle, a father figure in Hagen, and love interest Gunnar, the community’s expert agriculturalist.
Kora’s past is about to catch up to her. On the day of the harvest on Veidt, a planet with rich soil, the notorious Imperium forces visit. Led by the evil Atticus Noble, they take over the earth, forcing them to hand over their only food supply, which means they will starve to death in a few months.
Kora is about to leave when the new soldiers begin to assault a young girl, and Kora decides to take matters into her own hands. She kills all of the soldiers and leaves the community with Gunnar, who now fears for their lives.
Netflix’s Rebel Moon — Part One: A Child of Fire Ending Explained: Who Is Kora?
Kora is Arthelais (Sofia Boutella), the daughter of the all-powerful Regent Balisarius. She is now part of a blossoming insurgency with General Titus. The brutal leader of the Motherworld adopted Kora. She is raised, trained, and molded into one of Balisarius’s finest weapons. However, we learn in greater detail that she is the “Scargiver.”
Only after Kai (Charlie Hunnam) reveals he double-crossed Kora and her friends. Of course, the sequel is titled Rebel Moon—Part Two: The Scaregiver. As of now, we don’t know why Kora is the Scargiver or why she was given the moniker. Could Kora have been a far more evil and dangerous figure than first thought?
At the end of the film, Kora appears to have killed Noble by bludgeoning him with his own “blood” staff and pushing him off the ship to his death. However, after Kora, Gunnar, General Titus (Djimon-Hounsou), and others return to Veidt (while seeing the robot Jimmy wearing antlers in a field), we get a last-minute plot twist.
What does Regent Balisarius tell Commander Atticus Noble at the end of Rebel Moon — Part One: A Child of Fire?
Regent Balisarius offers Commander Atticus Noble a choice: capture his daughter Kora or face death. In a scene reminiscent of The Matrix, Noble seems fatally injured by Kora before speaking with Balisarius. Yet, to everyone’s surprise, Noble is resurrected by mysterious figures, looking religious, called the “Kalis.”
His skin rips apart, revealing attachment plugs that allow him to be uploaded into a system, perhaps digitally transporting him to the omnipotent Balisarius. The twist is that Noble’s mission was always to locate Kora, also known as Arthelais. Noble (Ed Skrein) demands that Balisarius present him with Arthelais’s head.
In response, Balisarius swings his royal staff, shattering the ice beneath his feet. He immediately commands his subordinate to quash the rebellion and retrieve his “beloved daughter.” Balisarius vows to serve Noble’s head on a platter if they fail. The intention is for Balisarius to “crucify her in the shadow of the senate.” This has us wondering what world is real and what is not.
