The first time I attended SDCC was back in July 2007. We were in full Stargate mode, celebrating SG-1‘s 10th season, and Atlantis‘s 3rd.
Well, 12 years later, I’ll be making my return…
Stay tuned for further details in the days ahead.
From the Comic-Con press release: “Look back at the five years of adventures the intrepid Atlantis team encountered through the gate. View exclusive clips and never-before-seen behind-the-scenes footage, and hear surprise panelists tell you their personal anecdotes from the set!”
I’ve been advised of a few of the surprises in store, and I think those in attendance will be in for a treat.
HOWEVER – so the rest of you not attending don’t miss out, I’m going to try to arrange for the panel to be live-streamed.
Before any of you ask: No, there will not be an announcement being made about a new series. As far as I know (from what Brad Wright told us at the last con he attended), they’re still in the early discussions.
That being said, you know how I feel about the project of a new Stargate series = click the link: Stargate – The Next Step.
But I’d like to know how YOU feel.
More importantly, I want MGM to know how YOU feel.
For at least three days this July, representatives from MGM will be stuck with me. And what better way to while away the time than to let them know Stargate fans are still out there, eager for more adventures. YOU are the hardcore fanbase that will help launch a successful revival (notice I didn’t say reboot) and you need to let them know you’re still out there IMPATIENTLY WAITING to support a new series. One that offers a fresh jumping on point for newcomers to the franchise, but pays respect to what has come before and honors the established fandom!
So, please, hammer the comments section of today’s entry with your thoughts, concerns, words of support, favorite moments and characters, maybe even a question I could try to sneak into the panel proceedings.
Leave MGM a message. And I’ll deliver it for you!
