It’s not all that bad, to come.
The Stargate Atlantis movie, nicknamed Project Twilight, is the first movie based on Stargate Atlantis, which will follow the series’ fifth season.
The Atlantis movie will air later in 2009 on the Sci Fi Channel, and will be followed by more adventures from the lost city of the Ancients – if the first is a success.
The film will play into the established mythology of Stargate Atlantis, but the story won’t have the burden of tying up loose story threads from the television series.
It will be more (like) Continuum than Ark of Truth in that it will continue the story of Atlantis in a one-off offering. While the adventure will be stand-alone, the character moments will certainly draw on past experiences and future potential.
And while there is certainly potential for crossovers by SG-1 actors, executive producer Joseph Mallozzi hopes that the two series of movies remain distinct.
