Star Trek 4: Chris Hemsworth Explains Why He Dropped Out

The next film in the Star Trek franchise, Star Trek 4, has been something of a long journey. The film, which would be the 14th in the overall franchise and the fourth in the reboot series, has been in development in one iteration or another since 2015 and while it seemed like we might be getting close to the film becoming reality when it was set for a December 2023 release date, Paramount removed the film from its release schedule earlier this year. But well before this point there were scrapped scripts and other ideas for Star Trek 4, including one that would have seen Chris Hemsworth return as George Kirk. Hemsworth ultimately dropped out of that project and now, he's opening up about why that version of things didn't work out.

Pretend Play for Toddlers

Oh, the toddler stage. The toddler stage is so full of learning and imagination. Anything can be turned into a toy. Even something as simple as a cardboard box! Yes, we’ve had to fight our toddler over recycling cardboard boxes on trash days on many occasions. 😆 While there is nothing wrong with a cardboard box (in fact, it is a great open-ended toy to spur imagination and creativity), pretend toys are great for long-lasting fun and should be a part of any baby or toddler’s playroom.

People in The Villages are not stuck up

The current population of The Villages is over 140,000, with over 71,000 homes. To give you some perspective, The Villages’s population is greater than Manhattan, and if it was a city in Florida, it would rank #14, just behind Gainesville on the list of over 500 cities. When the snowbirds arrive, the population increases by 12,000-14,000. Not everybody, on everyday is going to be Cheery. But, we do have a bunch of stuck-ups.
