The cast and crew of Galaxy Quest are ready for a sequel

08.08.2014

GALAXY QUEST has truly become a cult classic among Sci-Fi enthusiasts. While it did "okay" at the box office ($71 million on a $45 million budget), the movie has garnered a following over the years, and that's because the filmmakers were aware of the absurdities that people go along with when it comes to Science-Fiction. STAR TREK and STAR WARS are inherently cheesy, but we love it for that. Rather than bashing or mimicking it, GALAXY QUEST knew to how to have fun with it. It is a love letter for fans of the genre. With that said, MTV recently compiled an oral history of the film for it's 15th anniversary. It's a fantastic read (check it out here) with a lot of great anecdotes, but I've pulled the quotes regarding a sequel for your reading pleasure.

Tim Allen, regarding a follow-up:

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. How’s this for a sequel: it’s 15 years later. The Thermians come back, but they haven’t aged. 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. . .

Writer Robert Gordon on a story for the sequel:

On the record, I definitely have ideas for a sequel. Off the record, OK, turn your recorder off.

Justin Long:

So many people ask me about a sequel.

Producer Mark Johnson:

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.

Sam Rockwell:

F*ck yeah, a sequel would be amazing. If it was a respectful script to GALAXY QUEST.

Sigourney Weaver:

Tell Bob, tell Dean, we are all ready for a sequel. I still have my costume!

Alan Rickman:

People didn’t get it when it first came out. It is genuinely funny, however. Extremely funny. A truly great piece of writing.

It's obvious that GALAXY QUEST was a project that everyone is excited and proud of and I think that shows in the final film. I would say that given the Abrams' Star Trek films and upcoming Star Wars flicks, a GALAXY QUEST sequel would be more relevant now than ever. Take advantage of the fact that Hollywood is making Sci-Fi cool again! If GUARDIANS of the GALAXY is any indication, audiences are willing to have a little fun with the genre. And for God's sake, please let Sigourney Weaver drop an F-bomb this time!

That would be such an amazing surprise

I would love to be in the theaters and unexpectedly see a trailer for Galaxy Quest 2. Galaxy Quest is such a great film, and one I watch multiple times a year. It's fun, original (well, original in a way of blending cult sic-fi shows together) and memorable with great one-liners. A sequel would do really well I think.

Do it!

Tim Allen has never been funnier and Sigourney Weaver has never been hotter! Truly funny film which made fun of yet respected the fanboy cultures of Star Trek/Star Wars.

The show must go on.

The great thing about this concept is that they can pretty much come back and do another any time they want to if the script is there. Because fans come back no matter how old actors get, a follow-up would just be where they are now, and then they go on another adventure.

tackle "reboot mania"

I'd love the idea of a sequel, but it should find something new to poke fun at, since Star Trek fandom isn't as big as it was in the nineties. I'm thinking about the reboot-culture, specifically. The whole point of the original was that these actors are stuck with their TV-persona for the rest of their lives. The situation today is a totally different one, with everything being constantly restarted with younger, hotter actors. How would these people deal with not being the center of the world

I'd love to see them clash with their younger counterparts (Abrams-Trek style), first on earth and then against the tapestry of another galactic adventure, as they get dragged out into space again.

Please make a sequel

The first films is one of my favorites. I would love to see them all back for a second one. Sigourney Weaver was absolutely gorgeous in this film. I read a while back that's the original cut was rated R. Heard to believe but it came from Sigourney Weaver herself. I would love to see that versions of the film

Would be all for this. Especially considering how well Guardians of the Galaxy did in terms of box office.

Galaxy Quest is one of my all-time favourite anythings. Five stars without question. It's my favourite parody film ever. Yes, even above Airplane. I think a sequel could play around with the idea of a reboot with a young and sexy cast and even have parallel time streams thrown in like with JJ Abrams' Star Trek. If some of the actors from Abrams' Trek could cameo, that would be even better.

And I'd love one too if the script was right. I think this movie deserves a spot amongst some of the best comedies.

A sequel to this would be great. Regardless of the time that has gone by the sequel could pick up from the first movie in so many ways. I think Tim Allen was onto something with his idea. Have the Thermians return looking for a new homeworld since there's was destroyed and they've found a planet but they want the Galaxy Quest stars to help them figure it all out. So they go to help them settle the planet only to find out that it's already inhabited, they try to negotiate with the planet's
