Devlin and Roland will always be the creators of the Stargate. Taking away the opportunity to develop their vision is an affront to the authors’ vision. To be happy that their film was taken away from them is pitiful.

The movie was very underrated scifi, and setup the great tv shows in that fun scifi realm (like Farscape, Firefly… But Stargate was more superior as did some cool character/world-building IMO ). I’m curious how Stargate would look like nowadays If a major tv studio like HBO/Netflix/Amazon gave it a huge budget like WestWorld. or do you keep it slightly mid-budget to keep it ‘fun’ (like how Dark Matter was). I wonder if Stargate will be a tough sell to Studios now that The Expanse has stargates to visit other worlds in their universe. But Stargate can go more the… Read more »

Something like the Expanse but more high tech but lesser than Star Trek Discovery tech wise.

Underrated? LOL. It lasted for 17 seasons–it’s one of the most successful franchises in TV history.

They were referring to the movie, not the series

Preferred the TV series to the movie, I think for the foreseeable future Stargate is a no go. Too many other series/films have used it’s premise for it to be original enough any more. I’m sure we all don’t want it going down the drain like Star Trek has!

I have the same idea or conclusion. Is it either a total reboot or continuation with mentionings but less screen time. Unless Amanda Tapping(sorry if i botched the name) becomes SGC General. A continuation is more advised. Goa’uld are pretty much done, Lucian Alliance is meh, Replicants etc are not worth mentioning, Ori are puff. Make a new enemy, something more misterious, nefarious, alien, something that comes from beyond the known galaxy something that even ascended ancients have trouble dealing with. And also don’t forget of Atlantis, the continuation is still there, they on Earth, they went back to pegasus… Read more »

0n the contrary, Picard and the second season of Discovery are terrific. Jury is still out for season 3.

I don’t want these guys to have anything to do with a possible trilogy. They tanked with their last movies, like independence day 2, midway which was mediocre at best.Dean Devlin is no better. I want someone to take this as an opportunity to reboot the franchise, start a trilogy then do tv shows and spin offs. If MGM can’t, then give it or pass it to someone who can.

I’m so glad those two movies weren’t made. The original film is the weakest aspect of Stargate, but a mile. It was the TV writers who figured out how to make a good story out of that mess. Those two sequels sound like the same ol’ weak and redundant storytelling Devlin and Emmerich have used on all of their movies. MGM absolutely did the right thing.
