The new 10-episode digital series based on the sci-fi franchise, Stargate Origins is getting an early 2018 release date. MGM/New Form are launching the series on MGM’s new digital platform titled: Stargate Command, and we have the very first official teaser trailer to go along with the premiere date.
The story focuses on Catherine, daughter of Professor Langford (played by Stargate Atlantis alumni, Connor Trinneer) as she embarks on a journey to unlock the mystery of what lies beyond the Stargate and save earth from an unimaginable darkness. Ellie Gall leads the cast of Stargate: Origins as Catherine and is set to portray the legendary Stargate icon who was played by Elizabeth Hoffman in the original Stargate SG-1.
Check out the teaser trailer for Stargate Origins below:
The first trailer flashes through footage of the young Catherine and her journeys through the desert. Glimpses of Nazis and gunfire pack the screen, with the teaser ending with the all-important information: a premiere date of February 15, 2018! “From now on, I’m in charge,” Ellie Gall’s Langford says as she comes into her own with this character-centered series.
Directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan and was written by Mark Ilvedson and Justin Michael Terry, this Stargate series was first announced back during San Deigo Comic-Con in July. The cast also includes Salome Azizi, Philip Alexander, Michelle Jubilee Gonzalez, Daniel Rashid, Sarah Navratil, Shvan Aladdin, Tonatiuh Elizarraraz, Derek Chariton, Justin Michael Terry and Lincoln Werner Hoppe.
Viveca Lindfors (older Catherine) and Kelly Vint Castro (younger Catherine) played the character in the original 1994 Stargate movie from director Roland Emmerich, but Origins will explore the earlier history of Catherine and the Stargate.
