The Cast and Crew Want a GALAXY QUEST Sequel

By Amirose Eisenbach August 8, 2014

If you haven't seen "Galaxy Quest" by now, you are truly missing out. The hilarious 1999 sci-fi spoof was way ahead of its time and holds up today in a big way. Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Justin Long and Sam Rockwell are just a few names that composed the amazing ensemble and the idea of a sequel is now being teased. Not going to lie, I'm not mad about that prospect.

On the sequel, Allen said, "There’s a sequel somewhere. It’s written, but I haven’t really gotten a straight answer about it, but Hollywood is a very peculiar place. It is none of my business."

Apparently Allen has some ideas of his own for what the new adventure could hold. "How’s this for a sequel: it’s 15 years later. The Thermians come back, but they haven’t aged," he said. "Maybe they don’t have warp anymore so it took 15 years. They have to search for a new homeland. Sarris [the main villain] is gone but his family never forgets and you take it from there."

Producer Mark Johnson had something to say on the matter as well. He stated, "If we announced a sequel or a TV show, there’d be genuine excitement, not "It’s too late." We’ve tried. I’d do it, Dean would do it. But we need Bob. It’s a Bob Gordon joint, but Bob is a very specific guy."

Cut to writer Robert Gordon, who is keeping hope alive for us mere mortals. Gordon said, "On the record, I definitely have ideas for a sequel. Off the record, OK, turn your recorder off."

Rockwell is also game, adding, "F–k yeah, a sequel would be amazing. If it was a respectful script to "Galaxy Quest."

Weaver is as well, proclaiming, "Tell Bob, tell Dean, we are all ready for a sequel. I still have my costume!"

Well there you have it. Arguably one of the most beloved of its kind, the cast and crew of the original are all down for a sequel. The film will hit its 15th anniversary later this year, which seems like an opportune moment to get a real sequel announced. After all, we were informed long ago to, "Never give up, never surrender!"
