It seems like Paramount Studios is ready to create Michelle Yeoh’s return to the franchise a reality. However, with a little twist. It was initially believed that Yeoh will return as Emperor Philippa Georgiou for a Section 31 TV series, however, it has been revealed that it will be a feature-length film.

The studios obviously would love to make a project revolving around Michelle Yeoh’s character given the boost in the actress’ popularity after she won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her work in the Oscar-winning movie, Everything Everywhere All at Once.

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.
