Enterprise Is A Dream Says Cho
Over the last 40 plus years Star Trek has enjoyed many incarnations, but of them all the original series characters remain the most iconic. So will this new bunch of actors seek to emulate those performances – will there be a new spin.
Cho for his part feels that everyone concerned in the new movie is respectful of the classic cast – but plan to bring their own take to the core characters.
“I don’t mean to be vague but what I can say is honest which is that I think, myself and everyone else on the film, J.J. and the designers, I think we are trying to be respectful of the original series and we’re also trying to get some new fans, do things differently and put a younger, more vigorous spin on it.”
When asked about the new Enterprise Bridge Cho beamed, “It was lame [Laughter]. It was dreamlike. I would have to say more than anything else. It’s quite special”.
As to the change in release date – the actor is upbeat.
“I think it’s great. I was kind of attached to the Christmas day release because my family and I we used to go see movies on Christmas day so I was excited about that but, I think it probably is a summer movie and it’s sold as a summer movie”.
