Abrams: Star Trek Not Traditional Prequel February 5, 2008by Anthony Pascale , Filed under: Abrams,Star Trek (2009 film) , trackback
When JJ Abrams comes to TrekMovie.com for a live chat or speaks at some tech conference, he shows off his geek cred. But, of course his plan for the new Star Trek is to appeal to everyone so he has to shed that when he talks to the ‘norms.’ Which is exactly what you can see with some quotes buried in one of those ‘Movies to look forward to in 2008′ previews over at USA Today where Abrams is quoted saying…
I was not an avid Star Trek fan, I want this to appeal to people who never saw Star Trek or think its days are over.
The director also explained to the USA TODAY how his new Star Trek will not be like other recent prequels:
It won’t suffer from the problem that traditional prequels suffer from: that you know all the characters will live.
TREKMOVIE SNEAK PEEK
could this be what Abrams is referring to?
