Stargate movie trilogy / reboot announced

According to Deadline (Link is http : / / www . deadline . com /2014/05/mgm-warner-bros-reboot-stargate  Just remove the blank spaces - LJ thinks it is spam), MGM and Warner Bros. have now announced they will let Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin create a re-imagined trilogy based on the original 1994 Stargate movie. The two have wanted to make it a trilogy ever since they made the original movie.

According to Gateworld and lots and lots of other places I've seen online, Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin does not like the series SG-1, SGA, and SGU and are going to ignore them and only follow the 1994 movies continuity.

So (IMHO) we will likely get:

  • no SG-1 team

  • no Samantha Carter

  • no Tok'ra

  • no Goa'uld (since Ra was the only one and is dead)

  • no Jaffa (Ra's guards were human)

  • no Asgard

  • no other planets than Abydos (the Stargate only went there, and it is in another Galaxy)

This amounts to absolutely no interest in those movies from my side. I love the Tok'ra, and only really watch Stargate for Tok'ra, Goa'uld, and team. With those absent, why should I bother?

From my point of view, today is a sad day for Stargate. I fear that the new movie trilogy will become the Stargate, and that people will forget the old series, and whatever canon existed in that. We will get a new and probably fancy movie with funky special effects that new fans will love. Yes, some may end up watching the three series afterwards, but since much of the canon of the series and the movie is mutually exclusive, I don't know how well the series will be liked.

Of course, alternate universes and all that, which Stargate (the series at least) has plenty of. Regardless, this was not news that made me happy.

Someone made a petition for those who don't want a Stargate movie that ignores the last 20 years of Stargate series and movies.
