Stargate creators want to make “part 2 and 3”

What would a Stargate movie sequel mean for Stargate SG-1, Atlantis and Universe?

The Stargate TV franchise may be dead after dominating the small screen for 14 years with Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe, but the original creative team of Independence Day and Godzilla director Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that not only would they like to return to the Stargate universe they created in 1994, but they’d always planned to.

Stargate has always had this empty hole,” said Devlin. “When we made the first one, we always intended on doing part two and three, and we were prevented for years. Our hope is that we can get another chance at Stargate and tell the entire story we wanted to tell.”

What will this mean for the Stargate TV universe through?

There’re a lot of fans out there that doubtless object to the idea of the Stargate mythos they spent 14 years watching develop as an “empty hole” and hoped that Stargate Universe‘s own story would get a feature length conclusion, but at the same time is any new life in the Stargate universe better than nothing?
