The film is described as bigger in scope than the original and word has it that Abrams himself has travelled to Hawaii to scout a location to double as part of a “jungle planet.” Location shooting is also said to occur at a Los Angeles museum for what is supposed to be a “famous Star Trek location.” Most of the filming, however take place on the Paramount lot.

  1. I love the original Star Trek but I also love the reboot. I actually like that it’s written to take off on its own. It just couldn’t compete with the original as a remake. But I think it can do well with its own personality, as you say. I’m looking forward to seeing what they do.
