Stargate: Origins has a final trailer, ahead of the prequel series’ debut in less than a fortnight.
Written by Mark Ilvedson and Justin Michael Terry, and directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan, the series takes place before the events of the original film and follow-up series, exploring a time in the franchise which hasn’t yet been explored.
Announced during San Diego Comic-Con last year, Stargate: Origins was expected to be released during the tail end of 2017. However, it was announced in December that the series will become available on MGM’s exclusive Stargate online streaming service, Stargate Command, this February.
The two-minute trailer gives a little more context as to what we can expect from the prequel series.
Ellie Gall takes the lead as Catherine, daughter of Paul Langford (who discovered the Stargate), and depending on how the execution of the series is handled, it has the potential to become of fan-favourite, considering the sci-fi premise being set in a period setting.
MGM has also released an official synopsis for the series:
“In 1939, Professor Paul Langford and his daughter Catherine are still grappling with the mysteries of the ancient relic they discovered in the Egyptian desert more than ten years ago. With war looming in Europe and funding running out, these brilliant minds are approaching their lowest ebb. Little do they know, answers are about to present themselves in a dangerous form, when the Nazi Occultist Dr. Wilhelm Brücke approaches their facility with a sinister motive. Enlisting the help of two young soldiers, Catherine must use all of her wit and nous as she and her new allies embark on an adventure into the unknown to rescue her father, and save the Earth from an unimaginable darkness.”
Stargate: Origins will be available for streaming on February 15th.
