Recent experiments on a class of atomically-thin 2D materials, called moiré superlattice systems, have uncovered an entirely new and fascinating world of enigmatic strong-correlation physics and superconductivity. In this colloquium I will give an overview of the recent experimental developments in this field, and summarize what we have learned so far about the theory of these materials. Towards the end of the talk, I will discuss some important future directions.
