Not surprised at that at all. When they announced it, it sounded like they had a plan. As if things were far enough along that by the time they announced that we would seen a lot off stuff by now. That doesn't sound anywhere near the case now.
And I had been looking forward to all of this. I grew up with the original movies. I loved JJ's two Star Trek movies. I'm excited to take my nephews to see the new movies, especially if they're going to involve some of the original cast.
I'm just like...don't **** this up for me, Disney!
