It has been five long years since the last Star Trek movie, and while the next one may be a while away, there is at least some light at the end of the tunnel (or wormhole) for Trekkers. According to Variety, Paramount Pictures has announced a release date for an untitled Star Trek movie on June 9, 2023. Last month, the studio hired Star Trek: Discovery writer Kalinda Vazquez to write the script for a film based on one of her original ideas. However, it is unclear if this is the same project.
Whether Paramount will stick to this date remains to be seen. There have been several attempts to make a sequel to Star Trek: Beyond in recent years, including one by Quentin Tarantino, but none have been successful so far.
Until the next movie, fans will have several new seasons of Star Trek shows to watch on Paramount +. Discovery and Lower Decks will return later this year, while the second season of Star Trek: Picard will be released in 2022.
In the meantime, Paramount has postponed its schedule for other films, affecting future films as cinemas continue to slowly reopen amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Top Gun: Maverick was moved from July 2 to November 19, while Mission: Impossible 7 was moved from the last date to May 27 next year. The next movie in the Mission: Impossible saga will now be released on July 7, 2023 instead of November 4, 2022. In the meantime, Dungeons & Dragons, which was scheduled for May 27th next year, has been postponed to March 3rd, 2023.
