When “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” premieres in 2019, the animated franchise will be back for another round of spinoff movies, this time focused on a galaxy far, far away.
The movie, which will be titled “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” is a spinoff from the Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope film series, which launched in 1977.
The original series debuted in 1966 and has spawned dozens of spinoffs.
Now, CBS has announced the new spinoff series will be called “Star-Trek: The Last Jedi,” and it will premiere in 2019.
The new series is described as “a highly ambitious story set in the Star Trek universe.”
It’s going to have a lot of “things” to do, too.
CBS announced that a “Star Star Trek” spinoff will be announced in 2019 that will be centered on “an ambitious and groundbreaking project that combines the storytelling, technology, and scale of Star Trek with the heart and humanity of a new generation of Star Wars fans.”
The new Star Trek series will star Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Boyega, and Anton Yelchin.
