I was glad when the movie title were announced that they were Stargate: Ark of Truth and Stargate: Continuum not Stargate SG-1: Ark of Truth and Stargate SG-1: Continuum. But JM called them the later form in his blog recently. I know it make no difference, but I just like it better with out the SG-1. SG-1 was the show Stargate is the franchise. I feel like it would be if ST: Generations was called ST TNG: Generations, you know. So what is it gonna be SG-1 or not?

Not really, the movies are specifically a continuation of SG-1, just in movie form instead of a TV series.

I don't think it really matters. The only thing i will say is that they have a better ring too them without the SG-1.

Stargate: The Ark of Truth sounds better, and makes sense and all, but from a marketing stand-point they probably don't want to confuse the movie-only fans. Or just random people who saw the movie and never saw the show, pick up the DVD, pop it in and have NO clue as to what is going on, or who these people are.

Putting SG-1 in there makes it too long I guess, just doesn't flow well.

I totally agree. Star Trek Generations was the continuation of Star Trek: The Next Generation, but the movie isn't called Star Trek: The Next Generation: Generations.

SG-1 as a title referred to the show. The show's over. We're still continuing the stories of SG-1 the team, but this isn't SG-1 the show. Plus it's really cool to see others titles after Stargate. It makes the SGU feel a lot bigger instead of just making SG-1 bigger.

It probably won't have "SG-1" in it. Plus, the producers wanted to remove the "SG-1" from the show's name in season 9 which I'm glad they didn't do. As I didn't want 8 seasons of SG-1 and 2 of "Command", 10 seasons of SG-1 is much better. Would they have even counted the 200th one as the 200th if they changed the show's name?

While personally I would prefer the movies to just be Stargate : The Ark of Truth and Stargate : Continuum, I won't be upset or anything if they include the SG-1 part. Not really that big of a deal to me.

The movies will not have SG-1 as part of the title unless specifically stated otherwise. Generally, when a movie is based on a TV show, it simply has the franchise title before that movie's specific title. Sometimes, the movie's title is the same as the series. Other times, the movie will have a different title from the TV show.

Star Trek's movies were titled Star Trek #: The (something). Star Trek: The Next Generation's movies were titled Star Trek: (something). The X Files's movie is simply titled The X Files (Fight the Future appears only on the DVD case, it's a tagline, not a subtitle). Firefly's movie is titled Serenity, the same title as Firefly's first episode. It's also the name of the ship featured in the TV show and the movie.

The SG-1 movies will be titled...

STARGATE: THE ARK OF TRUTH
STARGATE: CONTINUUM

I don't think of us know categorically just yet. We'll have to wait and see.
