The Yorkshire Post posted a new interview with Star Trek The Next Generation star Patrick Stewart and here are few excerpts of the article.

"Yesterday, I took my grandchildren to see the new Star Trek movie. There were three movie trailers, one for the new Terminator movie, one for the new Harry Potter and one for a Pixar animated movie. All the trailers sounded and looked the same. Full of standardised levels of noise, violence and special effects and I thought, 'My God, nothing would attract me to any of these'.

"I love animated movies and I especially love Pixar but I weary of standardisation. I don't know what's happened... but I better not go on, you never know, they might want to cast me in one of them."

He might want to leave it there, but given he spent seven years playing Captain Picard, what did he think of the 21st-century version of Star Trek?

"I loved it. I absolutely loved it," he proclaims. "It was a very, very odd experience to be in the cinema watching a new Star Trek movie that I wasn't in. Not only that, but with the exception of Leonard Nimoy I didn't know any of the cast... but, it's Star Trek. They've taken some quite innovative decisions but it's absolutely essential, right down the middle Star Trek. I got a great kick out of it."

He also says of Chris Pine, the young actor playing Captain Kirk: "He's brilliant. He is charming, truthful, funny and utterly delightful."
