This “Prodigy” movie, which would be a theatrical release, would aim to take the characters from the show and present them in a way that all ages could enjoy – mom, dad and the kids.
A future “Prodigy” movie
This thinking, Robbins said, is a “four quadrant” strategy and would allow Trek to achieve something like “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse”, Which was able to entertain on many levels.
“We are working on several fronts, and obviously Alex is the key to the franchise. [on Paramount+]. », Robbins told THR in the interview. “NOT A WORD [Abrams] has been the franchise keeper on the film side. We hope that as a business we will do what is right for the franchise. “

Goldberg asked Robbins if he “got scripts for a live action feature film from both camps?”
Robbins replied that “there is a lot going on, and I’ll leave it at that”.
Two live-action movies?
These comments confirm what has been a bit of a mystery over the past few months. Heavy reports on the hiring of Kalinda Vazquez to write what many thought, was “Star Trek 4”. Later, fans learned that a second Trek movie set to be released on June 9, 2023. Many thought it would be the same movie, but Heavy Robin Zabiegalski correctly assumed they were two separate titles – not one.
The “Star Trek 4“The saga is well known and originally had to appear George Kirk (Chris Hemsworth) and his son, James T. (Chris Pine), reunited. It collapsed, according to many, due to the failure of contract negotiations.

Boutella told USA Today that she “is excited to be a part of [Star Trek] again ”if asked.
“Jaylah” in a “Star Wars” movie
Instead of a new “Star Trek” movie, Boutella will be part of a new movie, which was originally supposed to be a “Star Wars” movie. Zack Snyder, the filmmaker who brought us “Army of the Dead” and “Batman vs. Superman”Creates his new story, which hpresented to Disney as a new movie “Wars”, but was rejected.
