With the DVD release of “Children of the Gods: Final Cut” less than a week away, fans have been wondering if they can expect composer Joel Goldsmith’s retooled score for the SG-1 pilot to become available for purchase.
GateWorld phoned the composer to see if we could get the answer.
“We’ve been talking about it but we haven’t made that decision yet,” said Goldsmith. “We’re looking forward to it. Right now all our focus is on Stargate Universe.”
Brad Wright began making plans in 2008 to re-cut “Children of the Gods” into a product that is more consistent with what the franchise has become over the past 12 years.
This includes giving Goldsmith the opportunity to create a new score, the original of which Wright felt was too “heavy-handed,” as it included elements taken directly from the original “Stargate” feature.
“It’s very possible that you’ll see a soundtrack for ‘Children of the Gods,” Goldsmith said.
And what of his team’s progress on Universe? “It’s going great. We’re now on episode six.”
“Children of the Gods: Final Cut” arrives on DVD Tuesday, July 21. Stick with GateWorld for more on this potential soundtrack in the coming weeks!
