Re: NuTAS: Would Shatner Do It?

I still fit into the Sacred Demographic, but only until next June, when I turn 50 (and can access the seniors' discounts some places offer). But I've been a Star Trek fan since I was 12, and have noted that many of the wonderful shows and movies I grew up with have been "rebooted" or "reimagined" for a younger audience - as if the originals weren't good enough! Hello, Hollywood - that's why they're called classics - they don't *need* remaking!

I have my doubts Shatner would ever be asked, anyway. You can't do Star Trek with him and not include Nimoy... and his voice is very noticeably creaky these days, and in the movie I noticed he had difficulty pronouncing some of his words. A new animated series wouldn't work unless the characters were also as old as their portrayers.

And of course, Deforest Kelley has been gone for many years, as has James Doohan.

They should just take the existing TAS voice tracks and do all-new CGI animations of the show. No need to hire new voice actors!

Re: NuTAS: Would Shatner Do It?

It's an old debate. For me it's mostly not that it was rebooted (which was pretty much inevitable), but the end result that came out of the process. I disliked practically everything they did with it. I simply feel they got it wrong, wrong, wrong and I've zero interest to see anymore of it.

We're already getting more than enough of Kirk as a punk. No more Pine/nuKirk, please, outside of that.
I agree--why on earth would I want to watch a poor version of a great character in animated form?

Re: NuTAS: Would Shatner Do It?

Well this is all very.. get off my lawn.

I'd love to hear Shatner voice Kirk again. I'd take him as TOS Kirk, I'd take him as NuKirk, I'd take him as OLD Kirk in either the TOS universe or the JJverse. His voice still gives me the thrills (I was swooning over that Priceline ad I posted in another thread) and I'd be super happy to hear William Shatner as KIRK, any damn KIRK one more time.

Well Shatner's voice ain't what it used to be unless they tweaked it by audio editing or something.

As for remaking the TAS episodes with new animation that doesn't fix some of the less-than-inspired voice acting.

Re: NuTAS: Would Shatner Do It?

I think it would be better to use animation actors. Some of the original cast is dead, some too old to care, and some just would not be interested. I'd like the original cast to be invited on as guest characters but let the new guard take over.

No Pine either. Stick to cheaper actors. Batman the Animated Series worked fine without Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.
