Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead – The directors of the recently released miniseries ‘Moon Night’ share what it was like working on the series and how it gave them the opportunity to go beyond the realm of storytelling.

While for Justin Benson the series presented a unique opportunity to explore an iconic superhero who hasn’t yet had a live-action portrayal, for Aaron there was something ambitious about creating the series.

Written by Jeremy Slater, the series stars Oscar Isaacs, Ethan Hawke, May Calamawi and Mohamed Diab and directed by filmmaking duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead.

Talking about the novelty of the series, Justin said, “‘Moon Knight’ is one of the last iconic superhero characters that’s never been seen as live-action, so you’re under pressure to get it right. One thing we wanted to make sure we got right was that it contained some images from comics in the spirit of great mind-bending. We are especially proud of how dreamy we are with drama, humor and heart. Can eye candy mix.”

“Moon Knight” keeps deep and mature themes at its core and is filled with Egyptian mythology and iconography with a new style of MCU hero that is vengeful and complex.

Aaron Moorhead shared how the series departed from the regular trope of a superhero story, “Above all this, there was an opportunity to work with color, texture and light that are not often seen in traditional superhero stories. Between old, torn clothes, layers of dust, surreal landscapes of towering rocks under moonlight, the magic of ancient traditions – there was something so ambitious about making this world an outlandish superhero’s world. ,

The series premiered on Disney Plus Hotstar on Wednesday and is available to stream in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
