ans of Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead universe may be disappointed to hear that the animated series, “Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas,” has been scrapped at Netflix.

Zack Snyder revealed this development to Total Film, explaining that much of the work on the series had already been completed, including scripts, animatics, and recorded voices. He mentioned that it could even be watched in its animatic form.

“We did all the scripts and the animatics, and all the voices are recorded,” Snyder said. “So, you could watch it, even in its crazy animatic form — you can watch the whole run.”

The animated series was set to be an origin story for some of the characters from “Army of the Dead,” chronicling their experiences during the initial fall of Vegas and the source of the zombie outbreak.


The series was set to feature the voices of the original cast, including Dave Bautista, Ana De La Reguera, Tig Notaro, Omari Hardwick, and Ella Purnell, as well as additional stars like Joe Manganiello, Christian Slater, Harry Lennix, Ross Butler, Anya Chalotra, Vanessa Hudgens, Jena Malone, and more.

Zack Snyder also revealed that the Army of the Dead universe is connected to his upcoming film, “Rebel Moon,” through a portal to another dimension. This shared universe connection suggests that there is more to explore in the world of “Army of the Dead” and “Rebel Moon.”

“Rebel Moon” is set to be released on Netflix and features a story involving a peaceful settlement on a distant moon threatened by a tyrannical Regent. A mysterious stranger, Kora, played by Sofia Boutella, becomes their best hope for survival as she assembles a band of warriors to make a stand against a formidable enemy.

While “Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas” may not see the light of day, fans can look forward to the release of “Rebel Moon” on December 22nd, 2023, exclusively on Netflix. This new film will offer a fresh perspective on Snyder’s storytelling in a different corner of his expanding universe.
