For all you Stargate SG1 fans out there (yes, that does include me!): Even though the TV series had its last episode aired on the 13th of March in 2007, SG-1 lives on!
Two direct-to-DVD movies will be released, the first one being ‘the Ark of Truth’.
Story-wise this movie fits between the series finale of Stargate SG1 & the 4th season of Stargate Atlantis. The movie will cover SG-1’s attempt to recover the “Ark of Truth”, a piece of Alteran technology developed before the Ancients left for the Milky Way. In an attempt to prevent the Ori and their followers to rise to power, a device was created that could essentially “brainwash” individuals, for instance Priors, into believing whatever “truth” was programmed into the device. The Ancients’ non-interference policy and belief in free will resulted in the device never being used. Even though the gift of Ascension promised by Origin is a lie, the freedom to believe was something the Alterans ultimately decided they did not have the right to restrict.
And here’s the good news: even though the DVD will not be released until March 11th, you can already pre-order it!
The 2nd direct-to-DVD movie, Stargate: Continuum, is scheduled for release in July. And this movie will, unlike the Ark of Truth, have Richard Dean Anderson in it! 🙂739 views
