‘Star Trek’ Veteran George Takei To Perform Jedi Mind Meld In New ‘Star Wars’ Film

Star Trek George Takei In Star Wars Galactic Empire

Looks like it’s another banner April 1st for actor George Takei. Last year on this date, news hit that the Star Trek veteran would get his own spin-off film called Star Trek: Excelsior (read George Takei To Target That Explosion and Fire Again In Sulu Spinoff ‘Star Trek: Excelsior’).

Now, the actor, best known for his role as the original Sulu in the Star Trek universe, revealed that he’ll be starring in a J.J. Abrams Star Wars reboot called Star Wars: Galactic Empire, set to start filming early next year. In the new film, Takei will stretch his acting abilities to the limit in the role of Master Ceti Maru, a member of the Jedi High Council.

Geeks of Doom learned exclusively that Takei will indeed be performing the classic Jedi Mind Meld in Star Wars: Galactic Empire.

Check out a promo still here below of Takei as Master Ceti Maru, which the actor posted to his Facebook page. Also, here’s the original news he posted on his page today, April 1, 2013.

Friends, I am thrilled to announce that I’ll be starring in the Star Wars reboot directed by JJ Abrams. I’ll be playing Master Ceti Maru, a member of the Jedi High Council. The new film, entitled “Star Wars: Galactic Empire,” is greenlit and will begin filming sometime early next year. It is truly a moment for The Star Alliance. Thanks to all my fans for their decades of support.
