Indeed, after much anticipation for SGU’s continuation in the form of a movie, producer Brad Wright announced in last week’s Chicago Con that plans for the SGU Movie had been cancelled. “We just recently found out that the SGU movie is not going to happen,” Wright said during his stage panel today. “It took too long. We just couldn’t get it together in time, and the window has closed. It’s actually sad for me, because after 17 years, I’m cleaning out my desk tomorrow morning.
Though Wright was certain as to the end of SGU, he did assert his satisfaction which both the series and the franchise in general had achieved. To demonstrate such sentiments, Wright indicated that “It was a great ride and I felt really good about [SGU] and about Stargate in general,” Wright continued. “When something’s been a part of your life for 15 years, it kind of takes you over.”
Wright also confirmed that the long awaited, Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis movies, Stargate Revolution and Stargate Extinction have been cancelled. The movies, which had been written over a year ago had been continuously delayed to due to MGM’s financial issues as well as issues in the economy.
Though there is currently no foreseeable future for Stargate, Wright remains optimistic as to the franchise’s future,“It’s a franchise. Stargate is not over,” he said. “Somebody smart from MGM is going to figure it out, and something will happen.”
