It's from the audio commentary for "Lost City" on the Region 1 DVD.
Why would you ever want to have ended SG1 any earlier than they did? Yes, I am okay with the closure that it got. No sooner. SGA should have gotten some movies. Let us not forget that SG1 could have had some crossover with those movies just like the ST movie Generations did.
As far as SGU goes, it is not just the fact that it was cancelled that would cause it not to be involved, IMO, but the fan divide. If I was an executive of TPTW I would not include it in the first movie. More likely to make the first movie involving SGA and let in some SG1 crossover. I would give it some time and hope for the best in the near future after the first movie wets the taste buds for SG again. Then they can make another movie and bring in SGU. If that one succeeds then sky would be the limit. Let the prequels and sequels continue.
Due to said fan divide............this will be a long long long time coming. Who wants to risk losing more money in this economy when the fans of the franchise are asking each other to boycott this or that.
If the ST fans had been like that, all those movies would probably never been made.
SGA and SGU both need movies and fast. Oh, and we did see Furling tech in one Season 6 ep.(A Furling skeleton was cut from the episode).
"I have never understood why it should be necessary to become irrational in order to prove that you care... or why it should be necessary to prove it at all."
Okay, the movies have been shelved indefinitely. This thread is over. Just wanted to say it.
This became apparent when MGM was selling an auctioning stuff off back during SGU's second season. Will there be a third SG-1 movie? No. Was there at least a story concept for a third movie? Brad Wright says as much. Perhaps we should have a discussion going on what the third movie might have been?
We already know that. At least a little.
All we know is the third movie would have centered around General O'Neill and the SGC going public. That really doesn't tell us much. What about Carter, Jackson, Teal'c, Mitchell, Vala, and Landry? Would the story be Earth bound as Continuum was, or would there have been off world action? Would the SGC have gone public at the beginning or in the end due to a global crisis that for once simply could not be concealed? Too many questions.
Vala wasn't gonna be in the movie and Mitchell and Landry were left uncertain(Earth was gonna go public?). Fortunately, there was more information on the Atlantis movie.
