Star Trek: Section 31 will begin production later this year.
Paramount+ announced that it has officially greenlit STAR TREK: Section 31, starring Academy Award winner Michelle Yeoh. This special original movie event will have Yeoh return as Emperor Philippa Georgiou, a character she first played in Disovery’s first season. In Section 31, Emperor Philippa Georgiou joins a secret division of Starfleet tasked with protecting the United Federation of Planets and faces the sins of her past. Production will begin later this year. Below is a statement from Yeoh about returning.
“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. So 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)!”Michelle Yeoh
