20Impossible – Pavel Chekov (Star Trek Beyond Sequel)

Star Trek's Anton Yelchin passes away

Actor Anton Yelchin passed away at the too-young age of 27, after he sustained critical injuries in a freak car accident back in 2016.

One of the few positives surrounding this heartbreaking loss of life is that Yelchin had finished filming his scenes for Star Trek Beyond, allowing fans one last

chance to enjoy his enjoyable take on animated Russian Ensign Pavel Chekov.

Director J.J. Abrams has since confirmed that the Chekov role will not be recast in the as-yet-untitled sequel to Beyond out of respect for Yelchin. Instead, you can expect a new character to serve as the navigator of the U.S.S. Enterprise going forward.
