Stargate Creator and Executive Producer Brad Wright announced at Creation’s Stargate convention in Vancouver that attempts to finance ongoing movies for the franchise have fallen apart in the wake of the Stargate Universe cancellation.
Given the amount of time that this has been dragging out, it’s not entirely surprising, but still a little sad that the final decision has been made.
Still, you have to give props to a franchise that lasted fifteen years and produced some truly iconic episodes of sci-fi brilliance out of a movie that didn’t exactly tear up the box office. And there is surely precedent for a franchise to be revived after time has rendered many nostalgic. (Can you say Star Trek or Battlestar Galactica, anyone?)
So dust off those DVD’s and give a salute to a great franchise. See you on the other side of the ‘Gate!
