Stargate owner Metro Goldwyn Mayer is planning an on-going Stargate SG-1 movie franchise, a production source tells GateWorld. MGM and the show's Vancouver-based producers are no longer pursuing an eleventh season for the hit television series, which was cancelled by U.S. broadcaster SCI FI Channel in August.

Though perhaps a disappointment to fans rallying for an eleventh season at SaveStargateSG1.com, the news does offer a silver lining: should DVD sales justify the plans to make an on-going series of movies, the adventures of SG-1 will continue.

The studio is targetting a fall 2007 release for both films -- just a few months after Stargate SG-1 ends its historic, 10-year run on cable television. They hope for at least one new SG-1 movie each year thereafter, a source tells GateWorld.

"There's a sense of an era for us ending," Wright told TV Guide in October, "but at the same time, we're all positive because of the prospect of continuing forward with movies and the introduction next year of Stargate Worlds, a massive multiplayer online game."

Well I kind of thought there was not going to be a new season so I'm not that hurt. But a movie every year is great.

I'm happy to see they want to keep it alive in some form, but I don't feel a movie can capture the entire story arc of a season or two and contain it in 90 minutes. I realize the franchise started as a movie, but it's evolved quite a bit since then. You would miss a bunch of the little things that makes Stargate Stargate, like some of the banter between certain characters. This would have to be edited out to make length. I think this is why the X-Files movie did so poorly.

i do like the idea of a movie a year but i agree with soul_motor that we wont be able to capture the essence of stargate plus we wont really get to know the enemy deeply like we do of the ori/replicators/goa'uld in a 2 hour movie

All of the fan petitions circling around on the internet (if there is infact more than one) have been, in my honest opinion, a complete waste of time and effort, since nothing positive has or ever will come from them. I would have assumed that it was pretty obvious fan petitions rarely have any significant impact on an executive decision.

Anyway, it's cool to hear that we'll at least be getting a Stargate movie each year, aswell as (hopefully) further seasons of Stargate Atlantis and this new spinoff apparently in the works, so I guess I don't feel as badly crushed as some others might be.

~ Im new to the Stargate Union, by the way. Awesome to be here : )

It's good but also kinda lame at the same time.  It means that they only have to make what boils down to a 2hr show once a year and then sell to millions of fans.  As long as it isnt 20 bucks each time and maybe only 12 then it wont be soo bad.  Atleast we only have to wait maybe another 6-8 months before we get some more in depth news of Stargate Worlds and hopefully should be playing it within a year.

That is a very good point. At least I will still be able to get my weekly fix.

Me to, I just hope they don't just make 2 movies and then it's over.  I'd like to see them make a couple and then maybe end SG-1 with a made for the movie theater movie instead of a made for dvd movie.

I think I rather see a DVD movie every year instead of a theator movie. You saw what happened to Serinety.

I dont remember how well it did in theaters but i thought it got good reviews.  If they do make a dvd every year for full retail of other dvd's then it better have plenty of behind the scenes extras and a higher quality than what we get already each week on tv.

Me too. But I'm also thankful that at least we get some SG1 movies. Would've sucked for them to cut us off completely!

Considering that the SciFi channel is making us wait a good 7 months to see the rest of 10 and 4 its not that much of a difference to me.
