We’re still talking about “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” here at New York’s Moviefone, so we’re going to break down the “Force Awakens” pre-cancellation, starting with the “Star Trek” films.
We all know the pre-credit sequence was a great idea, and now it has been completely remade for the new movie.
The sequence was created for the 1999 movie Star Trek, which was written and directed by J.J. Abrams, and was based on the TV series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
The idea for the prequel was originally proposed in 2002 by Abrams, but Abrams ultimately had to drop it because of scheduling conflicts with the Star Trek reboot.
“Star Treks” director J. J. Abrams and his wife, actress Denise Crosby, were in the middle of writing the script for Star Trek 2, but the production was scrapped.
J.’s wife, Denise Crosby is one of the best actresses in the history of the franchise.)
So, for the next 25 years, Abrams and Crosby would produce Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness in a bid to revive the original trilogy, but it was all too late for “StarTreks” to get the franchise back on track.
Abrams himself said at the time, “We’re done with ‘Star Trek’ as a franchise.
That’s pretty much what it sounds like.
Abrams said at a 2009 press event, “I’m happy to announce that ‘StarTrek’ has become the longest running television series on television and the most popular animated series on the planet.”
That was before we learned that the first film had been canceled, and Abrams went on to say, “Star-Treks,” is still going strong.
The pre-Cancelation sequence was originally meant to be a homage to the prequels.
When “Star” director JJ Abrams died in May of 2015, he left behind a legacy that is a great tribute to his work.
The “Startrek” prequel, titled “The Wrath of Khan,” was written by Abrams and written by his wife.
The movie premiered on May 6, 2017.
Since then, “The Return of the Jedi” has gone on to become a franchise, and “Star Tours: The Adventures Continue” is still making its way to theaters.

And for the most part, the precredits sequence is pretty good, with the exception of the Star Wars pre-title sequence that was cut from “Star,” and the “The Phantom Menace” prelude sequence that didn’t make it into the final cut.
Here’s the rundown of the film’s pre-cut scenes, with a few highlights that weren’t included in the final film.

“It was a breath of freshness, a new perspective, and a new feel,” Abrams said.
“I think the people who saw it were really excited about it.
They loved it.
I think it was a step forward.
We had a lot of ideas about how the film was going to be shot, how we were going to portray characters, how that story was going get told.”

“The idea of having a movie with a whole new universe and a whole fresh look at the world of Star Wars was something that really resonated with me.”
“The original Star Trek was about exploration, the exploration of new worlds, and Star Wars is a very different kind of story.
It explores the way humans think, how they relate to each other, and the way the universe operates,” Abrams added.
“You have this huge galaxy, and it’s kind of like a very large universe and you can explore the universe in many different ways.
But you can’t do it alone.
You have to make the connections.
You’ve got to figure out how to work together to make things work.
It was a big inspiration.”
(3) The original pre-screening sequence was intended to be “a way to introduce fans to the film,” Abrams explained in 2018, “a great introduction for people who were unfamiliar with the prelude.
We knew that we wanted to make sure that people were introduced to the new characters, and that the film would be different than the pre-“Star Wars” films, because the new films were not about exploration.”
The “precredits” sequence, by the way, was the last thing that the movie was shot before it went into production.
