Prodigy Creators Have Their Targets Set on an Animated Movie

Star Trek: Prodigy co-showrunners Dan and Kevin Hageman confirm they’re keen to develop a feature-length movie based on the animated series.

Star Trek: Prodigy co-creators and co-showrunners Dan and Kevin Hageman recently expressed hope that the animated series could spawn a feature film.

The siblings discussed the possibility of a Star Trek: Prodigy movie in the latest episode of the Mission Log podcast. “All our heads are always in the clouds here,” Kevin Hageman said. “Like we want to do an animated movie. I would love for the show to keep going for many, many seasons. And then, sort of like what they did with The Next Generation — they had the show, and then they started [to] spin off and do the features. And so to be able to have the show, and then to have a feature, like it’d be amazing. Not just an animated feature, but if you could do a live-action feature it would be absolutely stunning. So we have lofty ambitions.

The Hageman brothers’ ambitions for a Star Trek: Prodigy film come at a time when the franchise’s big screen future is plagued with uncertainty. Paramount Pictures announced Star Trek 4 in April 2022, with the belated live-action sequel slated for release in June 2023. The studio subsequently pushed the movie’s release back to December 2023, before shelving the production entirely in September 2022. It’s currently unclear whether Star Trek 4 is canceled for good, nor is it known what other Star Trek film projects (if any) Paramount has in development.

Fortunately for fans, Star Trek‘s small screen outlook is decidedly brighter. This includes Star Trek: Prodigy, which Paramount has already renewed for a second season. The Hageman brothers hinted at what’s in store in Star Trek: Prodigy Season 2 in a recent interview, noting that the USS Protostar crew will have to adjust to their new mentor, Vice Admiral Janeway (Kate Mulgrew). “Hologram Janeway was designed to just support them — to be A.I. support all the time,” Kevin Hageman said. “That’s what she’s there to do. Vice Admiral Janeway, she’s got a life and responsibilities. There is a bit of shift and a reality check that the kids will have to face.”
