Galaxy Quest
Limited Edition 20th Anniversary Steelbook Blu-ray
Best Buy Exclusive
Directed by Dean Parisot
Story by David Howard; Screenplay by David Howard & Robert Gordon
Cast: Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Enrico Colantoni, Daryl Mitchell, Sam Rockwell, Justin Long
Paramount Home Entertainment
Release date: September 21, 2019

Back in 1999, Dean Parisot made a little movie called Galaxy Quest, a scifi-adventure comedy starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman, which at first glance seemed like a parody — and a poke at — scifi franchises like Star Trek. There’s the cast of a cancelled 1970s science fiction television series forced to eke out a living at science fiction fan conventions and grand opening store promotions 20 years after their heyday. Said cast resents the show’s main star, a scene-stealer who takes credit for their successes and often makes paid appearances without them. And there’s the rabid, geeky fans at the convention who seemingly can’t differentiate between an actor and the role he played.

But while Galaxy Quest is humorous in its parody of all those stereotypes, it turns out the film is actually a loving homage to science fiction and its loyal fans. And it’s perfect in every way.

Galaxy Quest

Last summer it was reported that the TV series based on the sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest being developed by Paramount would be coming to Amazon. But, as it turns out, there was more to the story than just that.

Star Sam Rockwell was a guest on the Nerdist podcast recently, and he dropped a bit of a shocker: not only was Galaxy Quest 2 a go, but all of the cast was on board for it and the movie was planned to be filming around now. Then came the devastating loss of Alan Rickman, and other cast members’ schedules began to conflict, so the sequel was off.

You can read Rockwell’s quote below.

Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 banner

It was ranked as the seventh best Star Trek movie by hardcore Trek fans and now, Galaxy Quest — the 1999 scifi action comedy that was not, in fact, part of the Trek universe, but sure as hell came close — is going to live on in a new comic book series from IDW called Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues.

The film starred Tim Allen as Jason Nesmith, an actor who was on a scifi TV series very similar to Star Trek called Galaxy Quest, where he played a character very much like Captain Kirk. The cast members reunite at a convention, where they are approached by a group of aliens who enlist the actors to help them against a warlord, because they believe the events of the television series are Earth’s actual history.

Written by Erik Burnham with art by Nacho Arranz, the 32-page full-color Galaxy Quest: The Journey Continues #1 was released today, Wednesday, January 21, 2015; check out the preview of this first issue here below.

Galaxy Quest

Speaking with Lindsey Collins—producer of the massive Disney blockbuster that hit theaters this weekend, John Carter—recently, Collider’s Steve Weintraub was informed of some long-lost buried treasure of sorts.

Apparently Galaxy Quest, the fantastic 1999 sci-fi comedy starring Tim Allen, Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Rockwell, Tony Shalhoub, and Daryl Mitchell (as well as a slew of other familiar faces) as the stars of an old sci-fi TV series (a la Star Trek) who inadvertently find themselves beamed out to space to help very real aliens put an end to the ongoing threats of an evil being named Sarris and his crew, was initially an R-rated comedy before being cut down to the PG version fans know and love.
