Scotty didn’t beam up the new Star Trek Beyond trailer, At the premiere of The Force Awakens, HeyUGuys caught up with Pegg — who plays Scotty and co-wrote Star Trek Beyond with Doug Jung — and asked him what he thought of Star Trek Beyond’s first trailer:
“It was very action-packed. It was surprising. I find it to be the marketing people sort of saying ‘Everybody come and see this film, it’s full of action and fun,’ when there’s a lot more to it than that. I didn’t love it, because I know there’s a lot more to the film. There’s a lot more story and a lot more character stuff and a lot more what I would call ‘Star Trek stuff.’ But they’ve gotta bring a big audience in. They’ve gotta bang the drum. To the Star Trek fans, I’d say, hang in there, be patient.”
Star Trek Beyond hits theaters on July 22nd, 2016.
