What Is the Next Star Trek Movie Coming Out?

If you are a fan of Star Trek movies, you are probably wondering when the next installment is coming out. The good news is that there is indeed a plan for another movie in this beloved franchise. However, the details are still under wraps, and there is much speculation about what we can expect from the next Star Trek movie.

Rumors About the Next Star Trek Movie

There have been various rumors about what we can expect from the upcoming Star Trek movie. Some speculate that it will be a continuation of the current Kelvin timeline, which started with J.J. Abrams’s reboot in 2009. Others believe that the next movie will follow a new crew and ship altogether.

The Cast

Although we do not know much about the plot of the next Star Trek movie yet, we do have some information about who will be starring in it. Chris Pine, who played Captain Kirk in the previous three movies, has confirmed that he will be returning for this installment.

Zachary Quinto, who played Spock in those same movies, has also expressed interest in returning. It is unclear whether other cast members such as Zoe Saldana (Uhura), Karl Urban (Bones), or Simon Pegg (Scotty) will be returning as well.

The Director

Another question mark surrounding the upcoming Star Trek movie is who will direct it. J. Abrams directed the first two Kelvin timeline movies before handing over directing duties to Justin Lin for 2016’s “Star Trek Beyond.” It is unclear whether either of these directors will return or if someone new will take on this task.

When Will It Be Released?

As of now, there is no official release date for the next Star Trek movie. However, it was announced in June 2020 that Noah Hawley had been hired to write and direct a new Star Trek movie.

This news came after the previous planned Star Trek movie, which was set to be directed by Quentin Tarantino, was shelved. Hawley has stated that his movie will have a completely new cast and will not be related to the Kelvin timeline or any previous Star Trek movies.


In conclusion, while we do not know much about the next Star Trek movie yet, we do know that it is in the works. Fans can look forward to seeing Chris Pine return as Captain Kirk and can expect a completely new cast and story from Noah Hawley’s upcoming film. Stay tuned for more details as they become available!
