    Same here.

    That's what, even if I reeeeeally don't like Amazon, it would be great if the show was airing on their streaming platform. At least, we would have DVD/Blu Ray.

    If only that were a guarantee though. I'm still waiting for a DVD release of Stargate Origins.

    I have got my patch. I have received near my birthday in August.

    Superfan Panel... Meh... Don't remind me. I have tried it at least.

    Shall we make a new thread for the upcoming twitter storm? We have chatted here about it anyway. So what is the "plan"? How do you prepare for such speedy tweeting? Do you write a few of them in advance? I can't promise I will be able to do anything as I am going to finish the work at 6pm (UK time). I am planning to share a few pictures, but that is all.

    There is one, I think... at least there was one for the last one.

    I don't speed tweet, nor do I prepare.

    Last year I tweeted mostly from my laptop and had some images prepared to go with the tweets but this year... meh... I don't know yet. Bad Boys For Life is releasing this week. Might go and see it on Saturday instead of tweeting. My tweets won't make a lick of difference in the grand scheme of things anyway -- and StargateNow is still involved so will see.

    I have seen this music clip just now. I like the animation of the new Stargate, just I have missed the old 9 chevron design and the blue wormhole. But even this stargate has made me wish for more.

    Maybe such short animations / pictures would be a way to campaign for the future of Stargate. There are so many digital artists and tools are available.

    Will this leave Stargate in limbo? https://www.denofgeek.com/us/movies/...es-bond-rights

    I'd keep a particular eye on the Apple since they're hungry for content right now and will likely try to move quickly after a big purchase in a similar (albeit it less impressive) vein to Disney + with their deluge of upcoming Marvel, Star Wars, and Fox shows/movies.

    Well I hope that Apple will buy MGM because if Netflix wins we will most likely only get two seasons of a Stargate series.

    Thanks for the link. I wish Amazon would join the Appe vs. Netflix battle. Personally I prefer Netflix as it can be reached in more households. They really try to please the Hungarian subscribers, so kore and more shows get subtitles or Hungarian synchron.

    It is not written in stone that Netflix would cancel a new SG show. Currently I would more than happy to get 2 seasons than nothing. Actually I would be satisfied with a 90-100 minutes long tv movie at first to "test the waters". Then anything could happen : series of individual SG movies, mini-series, serialized seasons. Just we can't expect more than 10-15 episodes. But as I have said as long as we get something the larger, global audience can decide if they want more.

    If Apple doesn't get the subscribers, it won't last long with them either.

    Streaming services need subscribers to survive. If series don't pull in the money, they are not worth continuing. That's the formula of any streaming service.

    I am guessing the virus outbreak has changed the plans. I hope Netlix still buys / rents MGM's movie and tv shows library.

    All articles are from end of January or beginning of February.

    i'm gonna concur with Platschu and say COVID19 has hit the pause button on this acquisition.

    Everything stopped everywhere due to virus outbreak. So the pause button really is the samrtest thing that could have happened. That won't hurt Stargate or any other franchise since right now, the most important thing is to preserve innocent lives.

    Well.. All tv productions will suffer as pilots, whole seasons must be skipped as shootings were stopped. But maybe something will happen in autumn, when all streaming company will restart their own well oil machines as viewers need new materials. And who knows? Maybe Stargate will be amongst them.

    It looks like nobody is talking anymore about Stargate. The Stargate part of the forum is so quiet.
