Stargate SG-1 (1997–2007)
- Aside from the obvious difference in the actors playing the characters, the character Sha'uri from the movie appears several times in the series, but her name on the show was Sha're.
- In the movie, Colonel O'Neill's name is spelled with one L, but in the series, it's spelled with two Ls (which O'Neill himself emphasizes on a couple of occasions).
- Colonel O'Neill's son was named Tyler in the movie (his name could be seen on various awards hanging on the wall of his room), but in the series, his name was Charlie.
- The Stargate was located inside a military installation inside Creek Mountain in the movie, but in the series it was located at the military installation inside Cheyenne Mountain.
- The planet Abydos was supposedly located "on the other side of the known Universe" in another Galaxy millions of light years away, but in the TV series, it is located inside our own Milky Galaxy, and said to be the nearest planet to Earth with a working Stargate.- In the movie, each Stargate had a distinct set of symbols (represented by star constellations on Earth's gate), which differed from gate to gate. In the series however, each of the symbols on each of the gates are very similar, with the point of origins being the only unique symbols for each gate.
- The wormhole effect for the Stargate was different in the movie and the series. In the movie, the effect appeared as a spinning vortex coming out from behind the gate, however this was absent from the series.
