I'm not sure I'm right about this but I just saw a trailer for Roland's 10,000 years ago. And it looked a lot like a Prequal to the first Stargate Movie
(10,000 years ago being when Ra came to Power on Earth) Like I said Could be wrong about that but that's what it looked like to me. Any thoughts?

Ra didn't come to power on Earth 10,000 years ago, that was when the Ancients returned to Earth from Atlantis.

Right I just found this on the film, not sure that this movie is a prequel to 'Stargate'...


It was a time when man and beast were untamed and the mighty mammoth roamed the earth. A time when ideas and beliefs were born that forever shaped mankind. 10,000 B.C. follows a young hunter (Steven Strait) on his quest to lead an army across a vast desert, battling saber tooth tigers and prehistoric predators as he unearths a lost civilization and attempts to rescue the woman he loves (Camilla Belle) from an evil warlord determined to possess her.

what part of that trailer made you think of stargate? It has nothing like it. It looks more like a different interpretaion of moses.

The only parts that reminded me of Stargate were the pyramids and the 'He, is not a god!' line.

Emmerich would ignore anything about the Ancients anyway. I doubt he even watches the show.

Not according to him. He hates what the show made out of the movie. Personally, the movie lacked so much and the show to me is what the movie should have been. I normally hate remakes but they should have remade the Stargate movie with the show actors at some point. There never were Ancients or Jaffa or Goa'uld in the movie, they were all different things and the "Goa'uld" were Asgard-like beings.

Vala,

Well the movie canon does place Ra coming to 10,000 years ago, but I seriously doubt this is a Stargate prequel in a way, shape or form. Although the trailer did seem (in my opinion) that with a few changes here and there, it could be possible that to have some sort of remote connection to the Stargate movie but without actually seeing it, I think it will be near impossible to come up with anything that would remotely confirm a connection. Personally I think you just wanted a connection to stargate (for some unknown reason) so your mind created one.

MGM won't greenlight the project, not a chance.

Vala,

well yes but you wouldn't expect to see the ancients in the movie. It wasn't until half way through season 1 that the idea of the gate system not being made by the goa'uld was introduced, and the torment of tantalus was the first sign of the ancients, though at the time we had no idea who they were or no idea even what their name was. As for the jaffa, well thre are a couple of explanations you can think of. Either Ra's personal guard were goa'uld underlings. Or the more popular theory that they were human servants. Like Daniel acted as in 'summit'. There are also one or two theories you can come up with about ra's true form and why it looked like it did but the easier thing to do is just ignore those particular scenes.

10,000 B.C. has nothing to do with Stargate. :S

And on top of that, 10,000 B.C. would have been 12,000 years ago.


And on top of that, the film is from Warner, which has nothing to do with Stargate altogether.

It's true, but MGM weren't interested.

Yeah I heard that aswell, but there is very little to no chance of it ever happening now...

I didn't think it did. Previews still look cool though.

It' dosen't really matter anyway. I just dislike Roland Emerich for some reason.
He's really annoying on the stargate commentary, and he dosen't like SG-1.
I think he should be captured by Kolya.

Vala,
OFCOL,

The movie rocked. Of course it did, otherwise SG1 wouldnt have even come about. It was adamn good movie, but thats what it was ONE movie that didnt have TIME to be as deep as a series can be. So what if Jaffa or Ancients weren't in the movie? In COTG they state that there were no jaffa on abydos.

How do you work that one out? You ever seen the Buffy movie?

Flyboy

Yeah, but then even Joss Whedon hated that. Difference being, the series was Joss Whedon's continued efforts to get his story told. And I'm pretty sure the Buffy movie did well. It was good as a B-movie. Stargate did really well in cinemas.
