Next Star Trek movie could be animated

Paramount is considering an animated “Star Trek” film – inspired, says studio Chairman and CEO Brian Robbins, by Sony’s “Spider-Man : Into the Spider-Verse”.

Speaking to THR,  Alex Kurtzman said :

“‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ is still one of the best movies over the past decade, animated or not. It’s just an unbelievable piece of artistry. I went with my whole family and another family and we all sat there with our jaws on the floor. Ultimately, ‘Star Trek’ is about family, it’s about these giant universal themes. Getting to tell a story like that, especially given the level of cinema we’ve already brought to the television show, is a wonderful opportunity. It would thrill me to do that.”

Robbins added that it’s on the studio dance card to bring the Enterprise back to the big screen.

“Where we go with the franchise next theatrically is crucial to the health of the overall franchise. There’s no doubt that big theatrical movies are the beacon that ignites franchises. We’re in it and I don’t really have anything to say because I’m waiting for the development to be delivered. I can’t wait to get going on it; we’re not there yet, but we need to get there soon.”

Robbins couldn’t say yet whether the next live-action film will boast credits from J.J Abrams or Kurtzman.
