However sure, that is taking place, and it’ll premiere in 2023 solely on Paramount Plus. That is a streaming service operated by Paramount, and among the many firm’s different newly introduced tasks is a Dungeons & Dragons film, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, and a brand new Star Trek sequence.
