If you’re not terribly fond of watching Stargate Origins in 10-minute bites, not to worry — the complete story will be recut as a feature-length movie.
MGM’s official streaming site Stargate Command has announced that the “Stargate Origins Feature Cut” will be released soon as a digital download on the site.
It will also be the first of the Stargate franchise to see a release in 4K Ultra High-Definition format.
Set in the late 1930s, Origins tells the story of Catherine Langford (Ellie Gall), daughter of the archaeologist whose expedition discovered the Stargate buried on the Giza Plateau a decade earlier (“Stargate” the Movie). Now a young woman, Catherine must go to unimaginable lengths to rescue her father after he is captured by a Nazi occultist bent on acquiring the power of the gods for himself.The Web series has been running in 10-minute “episodes” on the site since February 15. The 3-part finale drops this Thursday, March 8.
All-Access paid subscribers will receive a special code that allows them to download the new cut for no additional fee.
While there is no word yet on whether MGM will eventually make Origins available elsewhere, the existence of a feature cut does seem to bode well for a DVD and Blu-ray release down the road. While we dig for more information from the studio keep it locked on GateWorld for the latest! And head over to our Stargate Origins episode guide to read about the series.
