Star Trek was so successful and well-received, that there has to be a sequel in development. I am surprised there hasn’t been an announcement already, as it seems pretty common to announce a sequel or spin off immediately after the movie hits theaters. Now it appears that there is, in fact, a sequel in the early development stage. Recently, J.J. Abrams discussed the possibility of doing a sequel, he stated, I love the characters and we were so lucky to get the cast we got so I just feel like – I feel too lucky to be a part of this thing to say goodbye to it.” The plot to the new film has not been decided on, they are currently developing the script.

So, a sequel for Star Trek definitely sounds promising; J.J. Abrams is willing to do the project, and I’m sure the cast is down with the idea. J.J. Abrams would be the dumbest man alive if he didn’t make another Star Trek movie. It would be silly to walk away from a franchise that is so popular. I am curious to see how they develop the story, and if they are going to do something new and different for the sequel.

There is a video interview Collider did with J.J. Abrams. Check out the video below…
