New, 19 comments

Star Trek star turned social-media phenomenon and LGBT rights activist George Takei has maintained a large and growing fan base throughout his career, and so it should be of little surprise that he's become the subject of an upcoming documentary. Titled To Be Takei, the film follows Takei from his time spent as a child in a World War II internment camp to marrying his husband and becoming a mainstay in the Facebook feeds of millions. The documentary premiered over the winter at Sundance, and it's scheduled to hit theaters on August 22nd. Its first trailer debuted at the end of last week, and you can view it above.
