First Look at Michelle Yeoh’s STAR TREK: SECTION 31 — GeekTyrant

Paramount+ has released a first look photo from Michelle Yeoh‘s Star Trek: Section 31 movie, which has been in production for the past couple of months.

The image features the Mirror Universe’s version of Yeoh’s Philippa Georgiou whispering into an undisclosed character’s ear. Yeoh originally played Georgiou over the course of the first three seasons of the Paramount+ series Star Trek: Discovery.

In the movie, “Emperor Philippa Georgiou, joins a secret division of Starfleet tasked with protecting the United Federation of Planets and faces the sins of her past.” Yeoh will reprise her role as Emperor Philippa Georgiou from Star Trek: Discovery, and filming will take place from January 29th through the end of March.

The Star Trek movie also stars Omari Hardwick (Power), Kacey Rahl (Hannibal), Sam Richardson (Ted Lasso), Sven Ruygrok (One Piece), Robert Kazinsky (Pacific Rim), Humberly Gonzalez (Ginny & Georgia) and James Hiroyuki Liao (Barry).

Yeoh previously said of the film: “I’m beyond thrilled to return to my Star Trek family and to the role I’ve loved for so long. Section 31 has been near and dear to my heart since I began the journey of playing Philippa all the way back when this new golden age of Star Trek launched. To see her finally get her moment is a dream come true in a year that’s shown me the incredible power of never giving up on your dreams. We can’t wait to share what’s in store for you, and until then: live long and prosper (unless Emperor Georgiou decrees otherwise)!”

Kurtzman added: “All the way back in 2017, before the first season of Star Trek: Discovery had even aired, Michelle had the idea to do a spin-off for her character, Philippa Georgiou. She broke new ground as one of the first two women on screen in the pilot to usher in a new age of Trek, and now, six years later, Star Trek: Section 31 finally arrives on the heels of her latest groundbreaking win. Everyone on Team Trek couldn’t be more thrilled to have our legendary friend return home to us as we expand our storytelling into new and uncharted corners of the Trekverse. Long live Emperor Georgiou; long live Michelle Yeoh!”

Domenic DiMeglio, chief marketing officer and head of data at Paramount Streaming, added: “We’re thrilled that Star Trek: Section 31 will be the next title in our Star Trek universe. Michelle Yeoh is an incomparable talent – she brought Emperor Georgiou to life in such an incredibly fun and nuanced way that the character immediately became a fan favorite. We’re so thrilled to welcome Michelle back to the Star Trek and Paramount+ family and can’t wait for fans to see what this special movie event has in store.”

David Stapf, president of CBS Studios said, “For years, we’ve been looking forward to Michelle Yeoh one day returning to Star Trek. Her powerful performance as Captain and Emperor Georgiou was a pivotal moment for the return of the franchise, and her portrayal resonated with fans around the world in a multitude of ways. We couldn’t be prouder to join forces with Michelle once again as we continue to explore the Star Trek universe, celebrate its legacy, and chart a course for the future of the franchise.”

Craig Sweeny wrote the screenplay for Star Trek: Section 31 and Olatunde Osunsanmi is directing the movie.
