An alien similar to Ra appears out of the Stargate, killing five soldiers and kidnapping another, a year after the original Stargate mission. A new team is assembled, including some old members, and they go in search of the missing soldier in order to find out how Ra could still be alive. Meanwhile, the alien Goa'uld kidnap Sha're and Skaara, implanting them with symbiotes and making them Goa'uld hosts. Written by Lee Jamilkowski

Did You Know?


This Final Cut is a re-edit of Stargate SG-1: Children of the Gods (1997), turning the pilot episode of Stargate SG-1 (1997) into a standalone film. The plot is similar to the pilot, but with modifications to several scenes, remastered video, a new soundtrack, and improved special effects. Some dialogue has also been edited and, in some scenes, entirely re-recorded. See more »


Captain Carter says that the planet they're going back to is (one of) the closest to Earth, which is why they can still access it using the old "address" even after millenia of stellar drift/expansion. But in the original Stargate movie, it's described as being "somewhere in the Kalium Galaxy," on "the other side of the known universe." See more »

User Reviews

An interesting update to the pilot.
22 January 2010 | by worldgateSee all my reviews

While some people here may not have liked the movie, or in some cases, don't like any movies at all (im looking at 'Big Cloits' movie review list), I enjoyed some aspects of the redo of the pilot. The enhanced CG was nice, expanding and cutting scenes which were kind of corny to me and extending others was nice. While its interesting to see Carter say 'because my genitals are on the inside' it doesn't seem realistic for her to be so militant.

I would suggest this to be a rental, unless you are a die hard fan and have every stargate episode released on DVD (or maybe picked up the 10 season box set like i did).
