This is when Dunc rolls her eyes and lets me post something about Stargate.
So it has been announced that the Stargate franchise is going to get the reboot treatment with a trilogy of movies. Coming back to the franchise will be the creators of the original film, Roland Emmrich and Dean Devlin.
Their announcement seems to indicate they will be going back to their own ideas for the new films. They have said many times in the past that they did not like the direction the TV shows took, so one can expect that canon to be blown up pretty quickly.
Whether or not this will work for or against these films is anybody’s guess. While there are many fans who enjoyed the original film, it was the humor and snark of the TV series that seemed to be at the heart of the love for the TV franchise. That’s not much evident in the original film. Still, the TV franchise got a bit bogged down towards the end, so a fresh start might be just what folks want.
As with all reboots, only time will tell.
