A new trailer has been unveiled for George Takei's documentary To Be Takei.

The documentary takes a look at Takei's illustrious life. He is beloved for playing Hikaru Sulu in the Star Trek television series and is also known for his activism in the Lgbt community.

Takei's former Star Trek co-stars William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and Nichelle Nichols make appearances in the documentary.

John Cho, who plays Sulu in Jj Abrams' Star Trek movies, also speaks about Takei's impact on his life as an Asian-American actor.

"There weren't many Asians in the television so when George would come on it would be a special thing," Cho says in the trailer.

In May, Takei was awarded the Vito Russo Award at the GLAAD Media Awards for his impact on the Lgbt community.

To Be Takei will arrive in cinemas on August 22 in the Us. »
